As an individual you can ask your guest or friends and family to help you celebrate a milestone anniversary, birthday or memorial of a loved one to help one of the most vulnerable groups in our community instead of giving gifts. As a business, your can do well by doing good and receive marketing exposure and valuable consumer contact at the same time your are helping our community.
Your fundraising event can be a dinner, concert, bowl-a-thon, wine tasting, Birthday party, restaurant promotion, retirement celebrations, art auction, food festival, silent auction at an existing event, or even a portion of proceeds of a sold item. If you have an idea for an event to benefit GSCMOW, we’d love to hear it.
