It is important for me to give back to the community as much possible. For my first donation to a silent auction, I sought out an agency that had a primary focus on women. I wanted to share in their mission and provide something for the auction that could really help provide funds for their programs and services.
I selected Hope’s Door, an agency dedicated to helping women overcome domestic violence. Hope’s Door is the only agency of its kind in Collin County and is in the town I grew up in, thus I felt a personal connection.
In contacting the agency to make a donation, I was asked to serve on the planning committee to solicit for silent auction items. Of course, there was no way I could say no. Planning of the event is almost complete and what a wonderful evening it will be! Too bad I’ll have to miss it…I’ll be in Phoenix but I’ll be at the House of Blues in spirit.
All the best,
