A Great Kickoff for the Winter: October 21, 2011
The Second Annual Hand Up Gala is well under way, and should be awesome with all that we learned last year. The dinner will take place on October 21, 2011 with a fine dining lunch for 200 homeless and hungry individuals. We are partnering with the Bishop Cosgrove Center again this year. This fundraiser is intended to raise support in the community for our efforts to provide blankets and winter gear to homeless people this winter. The Bishop Cosgrove Center is going to use the funds raised from this event to provide transportation assistance to homeless people.
Everyone who donates more than $45 to this event is entered into a drawing for some wonderful gifts provided by area businesses as a thank you for your support. These wonderful businesses have provided gifts that we will auction off in early November.
You can donate directly from our website by just clicking on the "Donate Now" button on any page. Mark Hand Up Gala in the purpose line for your donation, and you will be entered in the drawing. We will be sending out invitations next week. We hope that you will support this event.
