Dear Friend,
As you well know, nonprofit galas have several purposes: celebrating the impact of the organization and the achievements of its clients and community, recognizing and thanking generous donors, introducing new friends to the mission, and raising funds for the year ahead.
The Ulman Foundation’s 2020 Blue Jeans {& Bow Ties} Ball certainly accomplished all of those, but in reflecting on the evening itself and the completely uncommon year that followed, we can’t help but focus on how remarkable the fundraising, and its impact truly was.
We raised an historic $380,000 leading up to and during the 2020 event, and these funds sustained the Ulman Foundation through a year that could have stalled its mission of providing a community of support to adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients. Instead, the Ulman Foundation continued all client services, kept Ulman House open to residents all 366 days of the year, launched a new therapeutic art program, and even reached clients through virtual means who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to benefit from AYA-specific psychosocial support.
We could not be more thrilled to announce that we are ready to celebrate, recognize and remember incredible young adults, and raise crucial funds again! You are invited to join us as a sponsor and partner of the Ulman Foundation – enabling them to continue serving AYA cancer patients through their very personal health crises, even in the midst of an ongoing global pandemic.
The 2021 Blue Jeans {& Bow Ties} Ball will take place, for the first time, this fall. We’re excited to build upon the rave reviews of our Bow Tie Dinner and again offer a high-end seated dinner and engaging programming. We’ll share more details as they become available, but for now, we invite you to peruse the attached sponsorship options and secure your spot today.
Thank you in advance for your support!
