YWCA hosting annual Silver Showcase on Saturday
18 Oct 2019
The YWCA of Fort Dodge will host its annual Silver Showcase at Willow Ridge on Saturday.
Doors open at 5 p.m. with a silent auction running from 6:30 to 7 p.m. and a program from 7 to 7:30 p.m., with a live auction to follow.
Guests can purchase tickets at the YWCA, from any YWCA board member and at the door. Tickets are $25.
“This is our biggest fundraiser that contributes most significantly to our ability to stay open and part of the Fort Dodge community,” said YWCA Executive Director Mandi Crouse Kelly.
The funds raised will go toward supporting the projects and programs that aren’t covered by the “very limited” state funding the organization receives.
“So the generosity of the community is really what keeps the YWCA open and able to provide the services and support that the women and children need,” Crouse Kelly said.
Crouse Kelly said that guests can preview some of the auction items on the event’s web page at silvershowcase.givesmart.com. Some items up for auction will be Iowa Wild tickets, a $500 Iowa Central scholarship, DeWalt powertools, gift baskets, fire pits and more.
The annual fundraiser will feature live music and a speaker as well.
