For the past 10 years Passion for the Village has been an annual dinner-auction to benefit Children's Village. COVID-19 has impacted our ability to have this event as planned. In response, we've created a two-part Virtual Series to benefit Children's Village:
Part 1: Virtual Preview Party
Going 'virtual' is new for all of us and we hope you had a great experience at our Virtual Preview Party on May 22. This was our first live streamed program to benefit Children's VIllage. We celebrated our guest of honor, Rhys, and shared the story of how Children's Village impacted him and his family. We will also rolled out our new online auction platform with a few SUPER FUN, social-distance themed, auction items that closed on May 26. Watch the Virtual Preview Party below, the program starts at 30 minutes.
Part 2: Virtual Passion for the Village
Join us on July 31 for the real party!! Passion for the Village 2020 was rescheduled to this date in the hopes that we will be able to gather together and celebrate raising funds for Children's Village. We don't know how things will be in a few months but we do know that the services at Children's Village depend on you, and they can't stop for a pandemic. Meet our guest of honor, Lily, and her family. Participate in our full online auction with emcee & auctioneer Kevin Joyce. As much as possible, we will hope to have some kind of in-person option for those who would like to join us in-person, but we will also live stream this event so you can join from anywhere!
