Akron foundation to host gala and fundraiser

January 1, 2019 by  

The Akron Bar Foundation will be hosting its annual Gala and Silent Fundraising Auction during February.

Those who attend can start the evening by networking before dinner and relaxing with a drink from the cash bar. Throughout the night, attendees can participate in the silent auction from the start of the event until 7:30 pm. Dinner will also be served during the gala, giving the guests the option between filet mignon, chicken, mahi mahi (a tropical fish), and a vegetarian pasta dish.

There are several sponsorship opportunities that businesses can take advantage of during the event. Sponsorship packages range from Silver being the cheapest at $1250, to Diamond at the highest value at $5,000. Every package will include a black and white business card advertisement for the company donating, event signage, and the ability to post their logo directly onto the event’s website.

Additionally, businesses who are interested in using the gala to advertise themselves without becoming a sponsor can purchase advertising slots on their own. Business card advertisements are available for $100, while companies that prefer brochure printing can reserve space in the gala’s distributed program starting from $200.

The event is on February 2, lasting from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The cost of attending the Akron Bar Foundation’s annual gala will be $100 per ticket, which will include dinner and admission. Any further questions regarding the fundraiser can be answered by calling the Foundation and Office Operations Director, Ikel Kelly, at 330-436-0103.
