Vista Las Palmas Charitable Events 2018 – Your Ideas and Help are Needed
For the past five years, we have sponsored a Vista Las Palmas home tour to raise funds for charity. We signed on with the Modernism group which handles our tour web site, advertising, ticket sales, etc. Modernism charges us 20% of each ticket sold. While we feel it’s a little expensive, it has proved to be a win-win for everyone involved. Vista Las Palmas would like to thank the Modernism group for contributing to our past successes.
Putting together a tour is not a simple task. We need to find the homes and hope the owners are willing to open their homes for charity. We need to have each home photographed and write up a brief history present and past for our tour book and then put the book together with the photographer and publisher. Then we need to be able to staff /each home with several docents during the tour hours and many homeowners may have special requests regarding their home which need to be taken in to consideration.
The Vista Las Palmas Board has decided to take a year off from the tour but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to continue giving. We would like your help in considering alternate ways to raise funds. We are looking for volunteers who would be able to plan, develop and execute a fundraising strategy for our neighborhood.
Over the past five years, we've raised and given away in excess of $100,000. We want very much to continue to support local charities who are desperately trying to help so many in need. We need people with ideas on how best to do this.
If you would like to become involved in your neighborhood, please consider becoming part of our charitable fundraising. Our volunteers over the past years have been so supportive, and will continue to be, moving forward. Now all we need is a dedicated group to re-imagine the charitable event(s) and lead the effort.
We hope you will consider helping Vista Las Palmas support those who need our support. Please contact:
