An Evening of Celebration – Planting Hope Gala – October 13, 2012
Written by Plant With Purpose on September 26, 2012 in General
Celebrating changed lives.
If you’re looking for an excuse to celebrate, look no further. Mark your calendar, pull out the heels and ties, and get ready to spend a night dressed up while giving back to good cause—because Plant With Purpose’s Planting Hope Gala is coming up on Saturday, October 13th at the beautiful Paradise Point Resort overlooking Mission Bay.
Expect to be treated to a pleasant evening, with inspiring stories from the field, a video update from the Dominican Republic about the impact of VSLA’s, a gourmet meal, and plenty of opportunities to give towards Plant With Purpose’s international programs. You will also get to meet some very special guests, as two of our board members are coming all the way from Burundi for the gala!
As the gala is only 18 days away, here’s a little sneak peak at some of the auction items:
· Disneyland Park Hopper Tickets and hotel stay
· Art and hand-made crafts from countries where Plant With Purpose works
· Signed Wyland lithograph “Dolphin Tribe”
· Private flight to Catalina Island for a romantic lunch
· Stunning jewelry
· Weekend getaways, week-long getaways, rounds of golf on the best courses in town, Apple iPad, services, shows, gift certificates, and more…
So, start your holiday shopping early, or simply splurge on something that caught your eye with the peace of mind that it’s for a great cause.
Last year this event raised over $380,000, money that went to plant urgently, needed trees in Haiti, train communities to save together through Village Savings and Loan Associations, equip farmers to work with their land through sustainable farming techniques—essential actions that are helping the rural poor lift themselves out of poverty, provide more food for their children, and have a financial safety-net for times of uncertainty.
Come, learn more about Plant With Purpose,
celebrate the accomplishments of this past year, and give towards life changing work.
Seats are $110 per person and a table of 8 is $850. Online registration is now open!
Silent auction and cocktail hour start at 6:00, dinner will be served at 7:30.
