Personal Request – Auction Items Needed
I am once again a chair for the 5th annual “The Event”, an evening of food and wine tastings, a live concert performance and an incredible silent and live auction at the Calabasas Civic Center on Saturday, May 21st. Over 1,000 community & business leaders and residents from Bell Canyon, parts of West Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Agoura & Westlake Village come together with the common goal of providing consistent and sustainable funding to the LVUSD through their education foundation, The Foundation for Las Virgenes Schools. Last year, guests spent over $200,000 at the auction. In addition to being tax-deductible, donations provide an opportunity to gain exposure to potential customers and re-engage with existing customers. Services of any kind, Restaurants, Classes, Vacations, Concerts & Sporting Events are what we are looking for to make this evening a success! I am reaching out and asking for YOUR help! Please visit https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1DYCvKEBxCWwnwx-v7cKbLlXprv89yxPwqiDTlA8jOF0/viewform to make your tax-deductible donation. 100% of the proceeds raised will make a difference in the lives of the students & community.
