Our last and final fundraiser took place the last week of June at the Rodell residence thanks to a new organization called Gather to Give. Their mission is to help local nonprofits through creating and planning philanthropic opportunities for people to give back in the community. We were honored to be their first organization to help because of a friendship between our filmmaker, Aaron, and one of Gather to Give’s co-founders, Taylor.
Though we’ve received tremendous support from our network of friends and connections at previous events, this one was by far our most successful fundraiser. Taylor and Sarah from Gather to Give did an amazing job in putting the event together, and we are tremendously grateful for their time and efforts to help promote and raise money for Students of the World | Professionals.
From the delicious bites from the Chef de Partie of Lenoir Restaurant, Barclay Stratton, to the refreshing Titos Vodka drinks, every detail of the event made it special. There was also a silent auction featuring Steve, Dawn, and Ashley’s prints from around the world which also helped to increase the amount of funds raised for our team. We can’t thank Gather to Give enough for the wonderful event they put together in honor of us.
