This dynamic fund-raising event consistently demonstrates how generous the RVA community is! Funds raised during this event support Safe Harbor’s commitment to assist survivors of sexual and domestic violence and our efforts to promote healthy relationships.
This year’s event begins at 6 a.m. September 18 and concludes at 6 p.m. September 19. Last year, more than 50 people donated over $3,000 to Safe Harbor during this 36-hour fund-raising event!
Thanks to the creativity, skill and vision of the folks at Give Richmond — a division of the Community Foundation, there are a ton of incentives and prizes in addition to the funds donated. We are focusing this year on the two Lunch Break prizes… our hope is to receive the greatest number of donations on September 18 and again on September 19 between 12 noon and 2 p.m. If we do, we would be awarded $1,000 (each time!!!) in addition to the donations received!
New this year is the Amazing Raise 5K at the Boulders! Runners can indicate the charity they are supporting (hint hint we really hope you chose Safe Harbor!) and race fees will also support new prizes!
You can join the “Start the Commotion Promotion” by joining the facebook event — again please say you’re joining the event for Safe Harbor. One person will be chosen at random and their favorite non-profit will be awarded $1,000!
The Amazing Raise is a win-win for all of RVA! Thank you in advance for your support and participation!
