Create Your Own Fundraiser
Throw a party, hold a car wash, have a book sale, or participate in an athletic event on behalf of HowardCenter! At times, community members want to sponsor an event that will benefit HowardCenter. We welcome your creativity—and contributions. If you are interested in creating a fundraising event, please let us know, and we will enthusiastically support you in your efforts. Contact Deborah Shenk, Director of Development and Communications, at DShenk@howardcenter.org.
A recent example is Debbie Tirrito’s entry into the 2011 Race Across America, a 12 day 3,000 mile cross-country bicycle race. Debbie selected HowardCenter and two other non-profit agencies to benefit from her fund raising efforts.
In addition, HowardCenter welcomes the opportunity to partner with area businesses to develop creative fundraising events in support of specific HowardCenter programs. In the past, HowardCenter has benefitted from in-store fundraisers at Boloco in downtown Burlington and Applebee's in the University Mall.
