Evening of Giving

Was held on Thursday, November 9, 2017

at the Grand Harbor Clubhouse

Evening of Giving Gift "Wrap-Up" Planning, logistical challenges, prefect execution and the fantastic assistance of our volunteers or, as we like to call them, our helpful Elves, all came together once again to make 2017's Evening of Giving the best yet. The elegant event held on November 9th saw record attendance with 311 people and the invited media enjoyed the delicious food, drink and hospitality provided by our Platinum Sponsor, Grand Harbor Golf and Beach Club, as they chose from hundreds of stars, stockings and ornaments from two beautifully decorated Christmas Trees.



The elegant service and ambiance set the tone for the evening and we are extremely grateful to report that our number of contributors were up nearly 19%. Event Co-Chairs, Catherine Reichert and Tina Wilcox reported that they exceeded their goal and the final number did not include gifts that were purchased separately.

During the first week of December, our Elves once again went into action as we delivered our Holiday Cheer to our fourteen charities. The holiday spirit was evident throughout as the gifts were delivered across the county.

The pictures here truly capture the Spirit of the Season. Our many grateful thanks to all of you who made the Holiday Season of 2017 wonderful for so many disadvantaged in Indian River County.
