We are thrilled to report that FUNdraising 2017 is off to a smashing start!! Our recent HopeChest wedding rummage sale raised almost $7,000 for the featured charities of Get Hitched, Give Hope!!! Our deepest thanks to everyone who helped make it possible — from our ALL volunteer staff, who showed up crazy early to set up, and helped manage a crowd of shoppers; our generous event sponsors, who provided snacks, beverages, entertainment, and the infrastructure to keep the whole sale running smoothly; and YOU, our altruistic donors and shoppers. A heartfelt thank you to those generous enough to upcycle your extra wedding supplies and a high-five to those who bought them at bargain prices! We love a win/win!
We are so grateful to everyone who joined us on such a beautiful day, with a special shout out to our VIP shoppers, who gain early access to the event to snag their picks first. Every sponsor went above and beyond, and brought smiles to the face of each guest who tippled on Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas or tee-totaled with espresso, snacked, enjoyed music to shop to, visited the beauty bar and mugged in the photobooth. Check out the photos below, by Rebecca Ellison Photography, to see the setup, the fantastic wares, and the fun time had by all!
Funds raised from the sales at HopeChest, all go to support our featured charities. Thank you for helping make that possible!!
