The 2021 Bash is opening hearts to participants and families

THANK YOU for Opening Your Heart!

Your Generosity is Supporting WDSRA Participants & Families!

It was certainly a BASH unlike any other!  We are so appreciative of you being a part of it. Whether you made a donation in the appeal, bought a raffle ticket, made a bid in the silent auction, or are a sponsor … YOUR generosity is helping erase the $100,000 – $140,000 revenue shortfall left because we could not hold an in person event. At the end of the evening on 3/6 an incredible $100,873 was raised! And the generosity is still coming in!  THANK YOU!

MORE ON THE REVENUE SHORTFALL

Due to COVID19, The 2021 Bash will not be able to take place in person as usual this year. Because of that, we will be experiencing a revenue shortfall. As WDSRA’s largest fundraiser of the year, $100,000-140,000 is raised on that one night alone. Those funds are essential to meeting the programming needs for this fiscal year. Now, we are expecting a $100,000 to $140,000 revenue shortfall.

Families are depending on social and recreational programs to play a vital role in the overall health and wellbeing of their loved one. Without programs, their loved one may face amplified levels of sadness, loneliness and depression. Additionally, parents are relying on the dependable respite that even a few hours a week can give them to recharge. A family can be impacted on so many levels… especially during the isolation periods we are all experiencing during this pandemic.

Thank you for opening your heart to our participants and families during these very challenging times!
