Last spring, when we launched our 2021 Gala fundraising season, the vaccines had only recently arrived, bringing hope to our pandemic-weary community. While AFC embraced this optimism, at the same time we recognized that it wasn’t shared equally: our patients were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and have continued to feel its negative effects.
We gathered around our televisions and at the various watch parties that cropped up across the community on Saturday night because AFC’s patients still need us, and we need you.
We’re pleased to share that the 2021 Virtual Benefit Gala met our goal of raising 25% of AFC’s annual operating budget! We raised over 1 million dollars! We will use the critical funds raised to spread healing and hope, and to light the path forward for our neighbors most in need.
Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers, sponsors, auction donors – and to everyone who tuned in – for being part of last weekend’s success.
