RESULTS Fundraisers: The Fun is Cooking for Late Summer and Fall

August 17, 2011

There are exciting things afoot in the world of RESULTS fundraising!  The months of September and October hold not one . . . not two . . . but SEVEN great fundraising events. These events will be sweeping the country from Alaska, through Washington, past the Heartland states of Illinois and Ohio and all the way down to Texas!  They will inspire our donors, introduce new folks to our mission, and enable us to continue as an independent, cutting-edge, leading advocacy group.

All of our fundraising events throughout the year are run by grassroots RESULTS partners who fund our extraordinary work on top of their advocacy volunteering.  We are so grateful for what they do.

With that in mind, please take a look at these upcoming fundraisers and consider whether you know friends or family in these cities. If you know some likely invitees, feel free to reach out to the event contact so we can get them in touch with the folks you know. If you'd like help organizing a RESULTS fundraiser this year or next year, please contact Cindy Changyit Levin. Thank you!
