Choose Your Charity: Q2
It’s that time of the year again, time to announce the next round of benefiting charities for our Choose your Charity program!
We are proud to name OdySea Aquarium Foundation, Charros foundation, Sun Devil Club and Folds of Honor as our designated charities for the second quarter of 2018!
OdySea Aquarium Foundation: We began our Auctions in Action partnership with Odysea Aquarium in March 2017, and we’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the community support we have received! To date we have raised over $100,000 for the foundation, and we look forward to increasing that number with our ongoing Auctions in Action silent auctions, as well as proceeds raised this quarter through our Choose Your Charity program. The OdySea Aquarium Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity whose core focus is supporting education programs that assist low-income and Title 1 School in meeting and enhancing their curriculum. Thanks to generous community support in 2017, the OdySea Aquarium Foundation awarded scholarships to 50 low-income and Title 1 Schools. This enabled hundreds of students from across the Valley to attend field trips at the Aquarium at no charge. With your help and generous donations, even more schools will be awarded scholarships this year. Click here to learn more about the foundation.
Charros Foundation: If you attended a San Francisco Giants spring training game this season, there’s a good chance you saw our CBU team. In partnership with the Scottsdale Charros and the San Francisco Giants, we were proud to host silent auctions benefiting the Charros Foundation at each Giants spring training home game this season. Spring training may be over, but our fundraising efforts for this important organization will continue now through June 30th through our Choose Your Charity program. The Charros works closely with a number of organizations who share our passion to strengthen our community and to build a better future for our children. You can learn more about them and their mission here.
Sun Devil Club: The ASU spring sports season is off to a great start, the softball team is ranked 12th in the nation with a record of 23-4, the baseball program continues to grow, and ASU golf is in full swing! We have partnered with the Sun Devil Club previously through the football program and general events, and we look forward to our continued relationship with this amazing foundation! You can learn more about our partnership here.
Folds of Honor: Last, but certainly not least, is Folds of Honor. The Folds of Honor mission is to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members, an amazing cause that we are so excited to support! In addition to our Choose Your Charity program, we are also partnering with Twin Peaks Sports Bar & Restaurant to fundraise for this important organization, and you can be a part of those efforts! Visit our Auctions in Action silent auctions now live at the Scottsdale and Biltmore locations and bid on one of our featured pieces of sports and celebrity memorabilia.
