WIN GREAT DEALS IN THE SILENT AUCTION: The Creating Futures Silent Auction has some unique and exciting items and experiences this year. Buy something you can use now and invest in something for the future. Every dollar raised will go directly to support Adoption Network Cleveland's mission.
The auction will be LIVE for a week, beginning May 22nd and closing on May 29th at the end of the LIVE event.
MAKE A DONATION: This annual event is ultimately an important annual fundraiser that is a partnership between the organization and YOU. With your support, Adoption Network Cleveland Creates Futures for more than 1,000 individuals, families, and children impacted by adoption and foster care each year and advocates for far more through our public policy work. Your support of this event each year makes that possible.
TICKETS: Admission to this interactive virtual event is FREE.
If you were already planning on attending the event this year, consider donating your usual TICKET PURCHASE of $100. We know in a 'normal' year, you may have purchased a ticket - perhaps bought a new dress, hired a babysitter - and made your way to the event. Those who are able can donate your ticket purchase or anything you may have spent to celebrate this fabulous event, and it will go directly to Adoption Network Cleveland!
As part of the fabulous silent auction during the event, the American Fundraising Foundation (AmFund) will be providing 8 fabulous once-in-a-lifetime trips to bid on, including Tropical Costa Rica and Key West get-a-ways. Stay tuned to social media to learn what trips will be available this year! Remember - you will have THREE Years to take the trip, with no blackout dates!
