I remembered sitting in her office one after in May or June after we had received the tax exempt determination letter of the organization from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). As we were talking about how to raise money for the organization to provide services to victims and survivors of human trafficking and domestic abuse, she said, I used to attend an event where they just provide little items for tasting. It is usually filled with vendors and we can do the same.”
I thought that was a creative idea, so I opted in. Then we began to think of a name. We went through a list of fundraising names that we could remember and bam! Taste for Hope appeared like the shinning star in the sky.
One more thing, we were excited but we still need to bring it to the board for approval. Luckily, the board agreed and we started working hard to put the event together.
I must confess that it was not as easy as I thought it was going to be. Organizing a fundraising event can be daunting if you don’t know how to go about it.
Last year, it was a lot of leg work. However, we have learned from our past and we are doing things slightly different this year. We will see how it turned out at the end.
I hope that you can join us for the 2nd Annual Taste for Hope Fundraiser. You can get your ticket online or offline. To buy an individual or group ticket online, please go to The Enitan Story’s ticket page.
We are adding more food vendors to the the list. Last year, the guests tasted over 10 different kinds of food from three of the four regions of the world. So, don’t miss it, get your tickets now.
