Family Building Fundraising Gala and Silent Auction

Parenthood for Me is deep in planning for our

1st annual Family Building Fundraising Gala and Silent Auction

Date: early spring- TBD

Location: Rochester, NY

Cost per ticket: $100. - (over 50% of the ticket cost goes toward the endowment)
Tickets will be for sale on-line soon at If you would like to reserve a spot, please leave a comment.

Sell a table of 10 and receive a discount on total cost.

Even if you live far away and cannot attend, maybe you could help us.

We are looking for silent auction items, value of at least $100.

Ideas include: artwork, jewelry, electronics, cameras, iphone or blackberry, etc.

We are also selling table sponsorships for $250. This will allow a company or individual to advertise and show their support. There will be signage on their table and mention in the Gala pamphlet.

If you can help us with either of these aspects of the event, we would greatly appreciate the support.

PFM's grant applications will be posted on January 2, 2010. The first grants will be awarded in June 2010. The more money we can raise, the more families we can help create.

*Parenthood for Me, Inc. is a national 501 c(3) tax exampt charity

This is a great cause. I too will "put on my thinking cap" and see if I can come up with any auction-worthy objects. Um, stinky dogs with mud on their paws? Would you take one of those? I've got one right here, staring up at me.
