Valley Medical Center Gala
Organized by: Christina Pierce
Hi Friends! Thank you for taking the time to read about my cause. The Santa Clara Valley Medical Foundation holds an annual Gala solely on donations. Sure enough, it's that time again. We have been diligently planning this wonderful event and are so excited! This even has SOLD OUT for the past 7 consecutive years! To rasie money, we will be holding a silent with unique items such as gift baskets, vacations, local business gift certificates, Wine tasting tours, autographed sports memorabilia, etc. to raise as much money as we can for Valley Medical Center. VMC is the ONLY hospital in the South Bay that will provide care to anyone, regardless of ability to pay. Your support will make a difference to thousands of local families in need of care. I am looking for some wonderful people and businesses that would be willing to donate an item, time, Wine, classes, etc. or to sponsor a table to help us raise money for VMC. This is not only a wonderful way to help you community, but it is also a great opportunity connect with key leaders in Silicon Valley healthcare, government, business and philanthropy. Don't forget, this is 100% TAX deductible as well! You can also visit http://vmcfoundation.org/vmc/gala/ for more information. Here are just a few ideas of what you or someone you know can donate: • Limo rides • Airbnb stays • Jewelry • Salon Treatments (hair, makeup, nails, men’s shaving, waxing, massages, etc.) • Artists – either teach a session or donate a piece • Event tickets (concerts, comedy, Broadway) • Cooking classes • Gizmos and Gadgets • Behind the scenes tours of cool businesses, locations, or breweries, etc. • Meet & Greets with local famous people/CEO’s • Event Venue that would donate space for a party • Chef’s/Cooking Classes • Grocery store gift certificates/deli/butcher for the at home chef • Rangers who can lead hikes to areas you can’t reach/at night/backpacking trips/swimming holes • Adult Bikes • Kids Toys & games for a Kiddo Package • Dance Lessons • Beekeeping classes (or something similar? Cheese making? Candle making?) • Radio Stations that can offer behind the scenes tours, meet & greets, or tickets? • Sports Memorabilia (from a friend/collector/store) • Car Rentals • You name it!! Thank you again!
