Giving Party

Don’t just give until it hurts…give until it feels good.

Save the date…Giving Party ’08! October 9, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — perr1ker5h @ 4:46 pm

We just had our first organizational meeting for our giving party this year. Given the horrendous economic news and the neck-and-neck political campaign, I can’t think of a better time to have something positive to focus on. This year, Diane Belden has graciously offered her amazing home for the party. Casey Saussy has joined me, Mary Beth and Diane to help us pull together the details.

We selected the following organizations to be represented:

Habitat for Humanity of Orange County

Family Violence Prevention Center of Orange County

World Vision

DonorsChoose.org

Fuel Up of Chatham County

Center for Women’s Health Research at UNC

The date of the party will be December 4, 2008. More details will follow but we have great hope that we’ll have more guests, more donations, and more gifts to give! If you missed last years party, feel free to scroll through this blog to read up on the idea (yet another crazy idea dreamed up while watching Oprah!), the success from last year (over $12,000 raised in 3 hours plus inspiration for two additional giving parties in Charleston and Charlotte), our local sponsors, and more.

We hope you’ll join us this year! It promises to be lots of fun with lots of feel good moments. Give until it feels good!
