We are excited to be a part of the Chocolate Fest Fundraiser- How could we say no to Chocolate?
On August 29, 2009 the Louisville AIDS Walk supporter and volunteer Craig Scherman will hold his IX Annual Chocolate Fest Fundraiser to benefit the Louisville AIDS Walk. As Kentucky’s largest HIV Care Coordinator Program, Volunteers of America is joining Craig Scherman and the Louisville AIDS Walk to help raise funds at this fun and creative event.
As a part of the festivities on August 29th, Craig will conduct a silent auction for the 500+ guests and for this event to be successful we have been asked to donate an item, service or gift certificate to the silent auction. So we thought-- there have been one too many Gift Certificates donated so... what could we do that was different? We want people to bid because they really want the item we've donated. So, we decided to donate - Three Months of Flowers. Our donation will be a continuing gift to the bidder. They will receive an amazing arrangement delivered once each month to a local location of their choice. Flowers to their office? Flowers to their home for a party? They'll let us know where and when and -Poof! Beautiful Flowers. Last year, Craig raised $19,000 and he hopes to exceed that this year!
Funds raised will be donated directly to the Louisville AIDS Walk. The Louisville AIDS Walk uses the funds to organize this community’s largest HIV and AIDS event and also donates the funds to local organizations serving individuals and families impacted by HIV and AIDS, such as Volunteers of America and the House of Ruth.
If you're interested in more information on the Fundraiser or on bidding on this item let us know. We are very excited to be a part of this event and will post more details as they come.
