What’s wonderful about the mission of GRACE is that it seeks to utilize all resources to their fullest, so that children have food and clothing, and their parents have hope for the future or their utility bill that month.
One venue of serving is through in-kind donations. Auction items provide Gala attendants with original, exciting and creative packages that generate dollars for GRACE operations.
We rely on the creative ideas from GRACE supporters to engage with their network or make a gift on behalf of their family to meet this specific need.
The Gala Gifting Party has become the unofficial launch party into the Gala season, but its purpose remains as a fun way in-kind donors can come together and celebrate what’s in store for Auction proceeds.
When and Where is the Gala Gifting Party?
- Wednesday, June 14 from 5:30-8:00 p.m.
- Brio Tuscan Grille, 1431 Plaza Place in Southlake
Who attends the Gala Gifting Party?
Anyone can attend! The Gala Gifting Party is a favorite of local business owners, corporation employees, church groups, families, and all residents of the community who would like to contribute an in-kind gift valued at $100 or more.
Why a party? Can’t I just drop it off at GRACE?
You certainly can drop of your in-kind gift at GRACE, but a party is much more fun! Our friends at Brio Tuscan Grille are gracious hosts and sponsor the food and venue the night of the Gifting Party.
If you’re not able to make it, please drop the gift off at GRACE Main, 610 Shady Brook Drive in Grapevine. You can talk to the front desk or email Development Associate Sarah Armand to let her know you’re coming.
Should I RSVP?
Yes. Kindly respond by June 10 to events@GRACEGrapevine.org.
What types of items can I bring?
Some examples of in-kind donations include, but are not limited to:
- Any kind of tickets – concerts, sporting events, races – the sky is the limit.
- Autographed memorabilia.
- A vacation home you would allow to be auctioned off for a week/weekend stay.
- Airlines miles.
- Gift certificates to restaurants, movies, hotels, home or health services, or retail stores.
- Cash Donations.
I can’t think of any gifts. Can I just bring a check for $100 or more?
Absolutely. All checks can be made out to GRACE. We’ll also have credit card machines available.
We hope to celebrate with you, your family, employees or civic group on June 14!
