We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve finalized the plans for our virtual “Saturday Night Fever” gala! While this year’s event will be quite different from years past, we hope that you’ll show your support for our organization, staff and participants by joining us on Friday, October 16 from 7:00- 8:00 p.m.
During this hour-long live program, we will announce the winners of this year’s Volunteer and ACE Awards. We’ll also hear from our Founder and CEO, Kristine Quinby and a couple others who have supported our organization over the years. The evening will round out with a special video appeal for our “Buy the Bus” campaign and the opportunity to give in real-time.
In the days and hours leading up to our event we’ll also be holding a silent auction featuring dozens of amazing items, and a costume contest with prizes for the best dressed of the 70's and other categories. Fund raising totals and contest winners will be announced at the close of our virtual event.
More details and updates can be found on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages where you can also take part in contests, see pictures of auction items before they go live, and stay abreast of the latest news and stories from our organization.
While there are certainly downsides to a virtual event, one positive is that it costs less to produce. This means that 100% of the proceeds from previously purchased tickets will be directly applied to our Buy the Bus campaign. We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who purchased tickets and, in the process, donated to this effort. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. As a token of our appreciation, we will be sending VIP packages to the homes of anyone who purchases a ticket by Friday October 9th. Purchase your ticket and qualify for a VIP package today!
Another great thing about a virtual event is that more people can attend!
We hope that you’ll join us for this event, and we look forward to “seeing” you on Friday, October 16!
* If you choose to purchase a ticket, 100% of your donation will go to our Buy the Bus Campaign.
Why your donation matters
With your support, we will purchase a bus that will expand opportunities for our clients, which otherwise are not possible. Field trips, community events and other therapeutic skill-based outings, will help our clients gain social skills, a sense of independence and exposure to opportunities and environments they might not otherwise encounter. At Potential, we dream of providing our children and adults with enriching life-changing experiences. Unfortunately, because we don’t have a dedicated vehicle for transporting our clients, we are limited in what we can offer. It’s a fact we’re determined to change.
Although 2020 has changed the way we are able to host events one thing remains unchanged, our “Buy the Bus” campaign remains steadfast. The goal of raising $50,000 while ambitious, we know it’s attainable. But we need your help to get there.
Break out those platforms and bell bottoms, tease your hair and dress to impress! Submit your Best Dressed of the 70's Contest for a chance to win a prize!
Join our Facebook event page, submit your photos and then invite your friends to like the event page and to vote! Prizes will be awarded for Best Dressed Couple, Best Dressed Individual and Best Dressed Family or Group (socially distanced of course).
