November 28 is GivingTuesday and you’re invited to support our fourth annual GivingTuesday Shelter Gala. Instead of a traditional gala that includes luxuries for donors, we’re providing 50 FIRST UNITED shelter residents with an incredible evening of entertainment and gifts, and a special three-course meal prepared by celebrity chef Billy Nguyen.
This year, we’re hitting the streets of the Downtown Eastside with that five-star meal, too! Chef Billy will prepare over 250 gourmet meals to serve to the broader community from the FIRST UNITED Food Truck!
We’re raising $75,000 for this event that will provide approximately 300 Downtown Eastside community members with a special, gourmet meal, and 50 residents of our shelter with gifts, entertainment, and dignity.
Become an evening sponsor: $2,500
Residents will enjoy their gala experience from your named table. Businesses will be recognized as Community Partners for one year on our website, and individuals will be recognized as Community Donors. Also included is an employee engagement or volunteer experience, where you and 7 others assist with a food truck meal service and receive a DTES community education session from our staff!
