Special Events at Sisters build community connection
by Brenda, Development Co-Manager, Special Events
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at Sisters? What does it take for the cafe to operate, our systemic change program to accomplish dynamic outreach efforts, our volunteer program to expand its team of enthusiastic volunteers, and our administrative office to support our organization? In addition to a lot of hard work and passion, it takes a lot of dollars streaming in each month.
Many of you have enjoyed Sister’s special events over the years. Maybe you attended Journeys Art Festival last year, or a benefit event like Winterfolk. If you attended Winterfolk on February 1st, we hope you had an amazing time! In November and December 2013, several local businesses and individuals held benefits for us raising over $6,000. We really appreciate and need this support to help us be the best we can for our community.
Special events serve many purposes. They are fun ways for folks to get to know us, and for us to build community. People feel good donating to us by purchasing tickets or buying special gift items. Sponsoring an event gives businesses and individuals an opportunity to partner with us in a special way, demonstrating to the public that they support our mission.
Now we’re faced with something new: what about tomorrow? Through special events, we hope to plant the seeds of philanthropy in our Generation Y and Z friends. Engaging young folks in philanthropy prepares them to be active, lifelong community citizens. Whether it’s volunteering at an event or donating whatever they’re able to give, our young friends learn the value of giving when they participate and feel good about it.
