NEW OPPORTUNITY: Loving Arms Awards Dinner Committee

Want to help plan an awesome event with the Team at Abbott House? The Loving Arms Gala is Tuesday, October 25, and we need your help!

Seeking passionate, creative social butterflies to help collect auction and raffle items for our most important fundraiser of the year. The evening is a powerful celebration of love in all its forms, including the gift of self-love and the journey to find it.

What does a Committee Member do? 

  • Organize an effort to secure and inventory big ticket Silent Auction and Raffle items. Wrap and create beautiful displays of items for our guests’ viewing pleasure at the event. 
  • Help us collect 150 unopened bottles of delicious wine at varying price points ($20+) for our Wine Pull.
  • Be an Ambassador! Help spread the word about the impact the proceeds of our Gala make in the lives of children, families, and developmentally disabled adults (word of mouth, friends and family, social media platforms, etc.).
