Thank you to everyone who attended our 9th Annual Read.Learn.Grow. Gala!
Save the Date! Our 10th Annual Gala will be held on March 30, 2019 at The Riverview.
Make an impact – Consider sponsoring or donating a silent auction package to our annual fundraising event. Last year’s event raised $70,000 supporting our literacy programs, which serve 1,000 adults in our region each year.
Just as LVGH benefits from partnerships with companies, companies benefit when they engage with us. Supporting your community pays off with improved customer and employee satisfaction and loyalty, along with positive exposure for your brand to top community leaders, elected officials, and potential customers in our network. It’s a win-win, enhance your company’s image and increase the impact of your charitable contribution.
LVGH’s Annual Read.Learn.Grow. Gala has been steadily growing each year and this year is expected to attract over 200 supporters from Greater Hartford’s public and private business community. The event is covered by local media, and sponsors are recognized at the event and on our extended social media networks, website, and in our e-newsletter (1000+ subscribers from the Greater Hartford region). Our goal is to raise $90,000 with this year’s Gala. Sponsors will make that possible!
We are also seeking donations of all kinds or values for our Silent Auction. Past donations have included gift certificates, vacation packages, concert/sporting event tickets, food/wine baskets, jewelry, and a wide variety of other products and services. The donor’s name will be displayed prominently beside the auction item, on our event website, in all related email communications, and in our Annual Report. For businesses, donating an auction item is a great way to find new customers while helping a great cause in your local community.
Ready to join us? Please contact Katie Reaves, Director of Development and Communications, at 860-233-3853 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about sponsorship opportunities or silent auction donations. We are also happy to customize a sponsorship package that works for your company.
