Save the Date for the 2010 Planting Hope Gala


Written by Plant With Purpose on June 25, 2010 in General


Please save the date for Plant With Purpose’s biggest fundraising event of the year! Join us on Saturday, October 9th at 6:00 p.m. at the La Jolla Marriott for an inspiring evening at the 2010 Planting Hope Gala dinner and auction. The event will include exciting silent and live auctions, an IPAD raffle, an exceptional dinner, and an opportunity to help the rural poor and learn more about Plant With Purpose. This year will be particularly critical as we raise funds and awareness for our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

Please visit our gala web page to preview photos and descriptions of our impressive auction items: http://www.plantwithpurpose.org/page/73/gala.html.

Guests will have the opportunity to register online in early August.

Please contact Kate McElhinney at kate@plantwithpurpose.org if you are interested in donating an auction item or volunteering at the event.

We hope to see you there!
