Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City is planning a new and innovative way to raise money in place of their annual gala fundraiser.
"This year, due to the restrictions of the pandemic and for the safety of our staff and donors, the 'gatherings' will be in the convenience of your own home, or any other place of your choosing with up to 20 guests depending on the sponsor level,” said Jessi Riesenberg, senior director of Development and Outreach.
Donors will be able to do everything online, from purchasing tickets to bidding on auction items. “What your gathering looks like is entirely up to you as there are many packages to choose from," she said. Donors can opt out of ordering food, but the goal is to replicate the annual gala at home.
The online event will include a silent auction and the “change a life” portion where there will be a live thermometer showing how much money is being raised the evening of the event. There will be videos on Facebook throughout the day highlighting how lives are being impacted.
