KEEP SOJOURNER House STRONG
When The Cause Collaborative first toured Sojourner House, we walked through the facility and met staff and residents and were blown away by the sense of community, and the organization's mission to assist homeless women and children providing housing, self-sufficiency skills, and education programs, including after school tutoring and performing arts classes for kids.
As we walked through the facility and quickly sensed the need for new furniture in the dining room. At the time, they had donated round tables and uncomfortable chairs to eat and also do group activities/homework on.
We came back to the office and quickly called local furniture company, Staach, who agreed to design and build a custom (24 seater) family style table at cost. We then launched a crowd funding campaign, and were able to secure the funding necessary to build the table, benches and hi-chairs for the facility.
Sojourner House now has a dining room table large enough to seat all women and children in their facility. Sojourner House recognized the passion of The Cause Collaborative and asked them to join their team to run their first-time Gala.
The Cause Collaborative was happy to jump onboard and develop an event that would both tell their story, fundraise, and celebrate 35 years.
The Cause Collaborative themed the gala the "Gala for Strength - Celebrating 35 years". In a 3 month turnaround, we were able to plan and manage a beautiful Gala event with custom decor, a silent auction and cash call. These event components helped the organization to raise thousands of dollars quickly all while solidifying relationships with longtime donors as well as new donors.
The Cause Collaborative team is thrilled to rejoin Sojourner House for their upcoming 2018 Gala.
