I would just like to say that Saturday evening was nothing short of amazing!!
When preparing for our Evening of Hope this year I presented the fundraising committee with a new idea. We were going to have table sponsors who cover the cost of dinner for everyone and we were going to have hosts who would invite their friends to attend our event for free (we've always charged in the past). They may have looked at me like I was crazy but they accepted the challenge. We had 29 tables fully sponsored and committed hosts who filled the seats!
Our Tiqvah kids prepared to share their gift of dance and they did a fantastic job. We invited three speakers who had stories of safety, success and hope. During those speeches there were smiles and tears but they shared their hearts and love for Tiqvah and it showed. Our MC kept the atmosphere light and our guests well informed. Everything moved smoothly and the support was overwhelming!
I was able to challenge our guests to make the next step to not only get connected but to stay involved and they did! We were able to bring a little bit of Tiqvah to everyone on Saturday and it was simply amazing.
A special thank you to all those who made the night possible...Tiqvah staff, volunteers, board members, table hosts, table sponsors and our event sponsors. For all those who attended and supported us, thank you as well!! We really can't thank you all enough for allowing us to share about Tiqvah, THANK YOU!!
Here are a few moments from Tiqvah - Evening of Hope 2018...enjoy!
