In November, the nonprofit organization 1MISSION is hosting a gala at the Phoenix Art Museum. But it’s not just any fundraiser. It’s a celebration in honor of the families 1MISSION serves in Mexico, El Salvador, and Nicaragua – and an opportunity to impact the trajectory of even more families’ lives.
These families live in challenging circumstances, and the pandemic has only made matters worse. Due to poverty and lack of jobs, families in these communities often lack access to safe, secure shelter. But they’re not letting it stop them. Instead, each family voluntarily serves hundreds of hours in their community through 1MISSION programs. And at the end of the process, 1MISSION builds them a house.
At the 1M Gala – being held on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 6:30PM – hundreds of Arizona business and civic leaders, and other 1MISSION partners, will join together to make this work possible. It’ll be an unforgettable evening with food and drinks, inspiration and laughter. And a lot of generosity.
And as a leader in the Arizona community, we’re inviting you to be part of it. By sponsoring a table for $8,000 (personally or through your business), you have the opportunity to fund an entire house for a family that has already put in the hours of service to earn it. At the event, you will get to celebrate the new house you have already provided, and your guests will be invited to partner with 1MISSION as well. 10 tickets are included with your table purchase.
Two years ago, at our last gala, partners like you raised $450,000 – fully funding 56 houses for families in need! This year, we believe we can make an even bigger impact, and you won’t want to miss out.
To learn more about sponsoring a table at the 2021 1M Gala, please contact Nate Hughes, VP of Partnerships, at nate@1MISSION.org or (602) 550-0993.
