Dear All,

We need to raise $20,000 at the Gala to fund the arts programming, class trips and special events that we have come to value as part of school life at EVCS. Last year, in addition to the silent auction at the Gala, we worked with Charitybuzz to reach our fundraising goal. It was wildly successful, so we are doing it again this year!

Charitybuzz is an online auction site that helps nonprofits raise funds by auctioning VIP experiences and one-of-a-kind items in a variety of genres – music, entertainment, business, politics, sports, art, fashion, travel and more. What is great about Charitybuzz is that the bidders are from all over the world which means that the experiences sold can happen anywhere. The key is these offerings are things that can’t otherwise be bought – like set visits, internships, meetings with CEOs, seats to live taped television shows, backstage passes, VIP tours, etc. Please take a moment to check out their site. And, if you have suggestions for items that might be a good fit or want to discuss ideas, get in touch.
