Last May we put on our very first ALS Fundraiser & Silent Auction event at Penthouse Pool Club at the Yards. Through ticket sales, silent auction items and bar revenue we were able to raise over $25,000 for Augie’s Quest, an ALS research initiative dedicated to finding a cure for the disease. Last year was such a success we can’t wait to do it again bigger and better this year!
If you attended last year’s event, you’ll remember our guest speaker Andrea Peet. Andrea was diagnosed with ALS at age 33 and shared her story with us in a powerful speech that you can watch here. We’re so pleased to be bringing Andrea back for year two, and she has a special message to share with you below!
This year’s event will take place on Saturday, June 4th from 6-10pm at the Penthouse Pool Club at the Yards. Tickets are $30 with sponsorship opportunities available at $2000. *Sponsorships include a cabana rental for up to 10 guests, bottle service, and appetizers served.
We are currently collecting donations for our Silent Auction and would love to have your business involved. Any items, services, hotel stays, trips or package deals make great auction items! If you would like to contribute to the auction, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with specifics and retail value of your donation.
Light appetizers will be provided and there will be a cash bar available throughout the evening, with all proceeds being included in the check we write to Augie’s Quest at the end of the night. The more you drink, the more we donate!
You can expect some live entertainment too, most likely involving an Ice Bucket Challenge.
Cocktail attire is required. Purchase your ticket here and save the date for Saturday, June 4th! See you then!
