The appeal is to raise the funds needed to erase the $100,000 – $140,000 revenue shortfall left because we cannot hold an in person event. (Read more about the revenue shortfall below). We are asking for your support to help erase the shortfall and meet our programming budget for the year.

Saturday, March 6, 2021Virtual celebration 3/6
Pre-show @ 6:30pm
LIVE Show @ 7-8pm

The evening opens with a short preshow at 6:30pm prior to the main event. We’ll set the mood for the evening with several high energy videos featuring participants, recognition of sponsors and a special message from the winemakers of Capo Creek Winery.

 

The main event will be 7-8pm! Though we are not together in the same room, we have a lot of fun planned for YOU in that 1-hour!

 

Jeff Hayden, WDSRA Foundation Chair, and Jorie Meyer, WDSRA Program Manager, will be your hosts for the evening. They will introduce you to a few families who share just how important your support is to their loved ones. They’ll also take you into the studio for a special behind-the-scenes look at putting on a virtual event. And so much more!

 

Opening 2/26, is the limited silent auction we are currently working on. As always, you will be able to bid right from your phone and the comfort of your home. Stay tuned for a sneak peek at the silent auction coming soon!

 

Perhaps the best part of the evening are the viewing packages we will be offering. There will be several versions but all will include wine from Capo Creek Winery and a lovely charcuterie board. This is sure to make the evening even more special. We will have full details on those viewing packages coming soon!

 

For now, please open your heart by making a donation and then mark your calendar to join us. The virtual celebration is free for everyone.

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!
