- Be willing to share your involvement with Blue Ridge Women’s Center as part of your dinner conversation.
- Pray faithfully for the banquet to bring in the support that the Center will need for the coming year.
Who should I invite?
Friends, business associates, and community leaders who may not know much about Blue Ridge Women’s Center, but who share our concern for the women, babies, and families of our community.
Although guests will be asked to make a financial commitment to support the Center, your guests don’t have to be only those with the capacity to make large donations. We are looking for people who want to be involved at a variety of levels, from college students through senior citizens.
Can I only invite someone who’s new to the Center?
No, the fundraising banquet can also be an ideal place for those who have been casually acquainted with the Center or supported us in the past to get more deeply connected with and actively engaged in our work.
How much money is the fundraising banquet expected to raise?
If each person or couple you invite would pledge to give just a dollar a day for the next year, we could raise $100,000 to beneﬁt the families we serve!
What does it cost to host a table?
The entire cost of the evening is covered by underwriters so that everything given at the banquet can go directly to the work of the Center. However, table hosts are invited to consider serving as banquet underwriters as well!
