We are thrilled and grateful that our good friend, Gisela Greene, the founder and owner of Avant Garde, has again agreed to open up her store for us on Sunday afternoon, December 6th, as we fully embraced the holiday season for our 2015 Gratitude Party and Fundraiser with great food, great conversation and so many people stepping forward to share their experience with our organization.
We are looking forward to greeting a big crowd comprised of donors, recipients and volunteers, with most people wearing more than one of those hats. Two years ago, with what we generated that night, on top of some donations that came in before and after, we succeeded in raising enough money to get our van repaired as well as filling our $10,000 Sustainability Fund for 2014! And then we did it again last year, this time covering a new transmission for the van and giving us the cushion we needed to keep everything going through this current year.
At this upcoming event, we will ask for your help in filling our 2016 $12,000 Sustainability Fund. This is all we need to cover our annual expenses of $20,000, on top of the very generous ongoing monthly donations from the members of our Financial Family plus some mini-grants we receive from local foundations.
If you would like a personal invite to this event, please send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you cannot make it to our party, and you would like to help, please consider making a donation online or via check.
