FCS’ Annual White Nights gala celebration will be held on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Freeport. The location and day is a new focus to generate a larger more diverse attendance. A brainstorming group met to come up with suggestions for improvements to the event. As a result, the new space will allow more flexibility for additional features and amenities to the event. Feedback from the Board, attendees, staff, and past committee members/participants supported the change.
This is FCS largest event fundraiser and the 2017 event raised over $34,000 to support the organization. Again this year, we will have online auction to broaden the reach about the organization and the generous donors. It will be on the nonprofit online bidding site BiddingforGood.com. With local online bidders, as well as, bidders from as far away as Kansas and California for the last one, the goal is to expand the number of items to bid online to encourage more bidding.
We’re busy gearing up. We’re excited about the opportunities and look forward to seeing you in person and online. Check back on the FCS website for more details or contact Nancy Trottier, Events and Communications Coordinator at 865-3985 x 220 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
