We hope everyone is getting excited about our annual Gala and Silent Auction, which will take place on Saturday, February 28th at the Belo Mansion! This year’s beneficiary is Camp John Marc, a camp that allows children with chronic illnesses enjoy the summer camp experience in a facility that provides access to all of the medical equipment and oversight they need to continue their treatment. Campers do not pay to attend – Camp John Marc functions completely by the generous donations of local organizations and donors.
We have received quite a few questions about how members are able to get involved – below are 2 ways to help raise more money for this great organization!
1. Auction Items: Last year roughly 70% of our overall donation came from monies raised through the Silent Auction. We are currently looking for members to join the Silent Auction Committee. Each committee member will be responsible for getting (5) auction items donated. Haley Donald and Blair Nelson, Silent Auction Co-Chairs, will provide more details at an informational meeting at the Starbucks in West Village at 8:00pm on Tuesday (10/28), so swing by after the shopping event at Kendra Scott!
2. Underwriting Donations: Every dollar that we receive through underwriting goes directly to Camp John Marc. If you, your family or your company are interested in making a donation, please complete the attached form or visit slipperclub.blogspot.com. Any questions can be directed to Elizabeth Hoffman, Underwriting Chair.
If each of the 500 members in Slipper Club donated $25, we would raise an additional $12,500 to go to Camp John Marc. To put that in perspective, donating the money you would have spent on just one dinner out can make a huge difference on whether or not a child gets to experience the joy of summer camp!
