Join us for a fun, art-inspired evening as we explore the Matters of Heart that touch so many homeless and impoverished children in our community through the programs of Bright Blessings. A special display of unique artwork created by children we serve will allow you to see the impact that the gifts of joy, care and hope make for each deserving child. This, combined with our traditional Gala festivities, is sure to create a wonderful night to remember.
Back by popular demand, this year’s Giving Gala will feature a Silent Auction with the FUN and EASE of technology mobile bidding thanks to our friends at Auctions By Cellular! To participate in the Silent Auction and for opportunities to support the mission of Bright Blessings, please keep the following in mind:
Bring your fully charged cell phone or tablet. To bid on Silent Auction items, you will need a cell phone or tablet. (Note: If you or a guest do not have one of these devices, a member of the mobile bidding team will be able to assist you)
By participating in the mobile bidding, please note that Auctions By Cellular does NOT receive any percentage of your auction purchase or contribution!
At the end of the evening, for those who wish to make their Silent Auction purchases or contributions through other methods such as check, cash or manual credit card transactions, these options will also be available.
