For the last 2 years, we have hosted an annual dinner fundraiser. Going into year 3, we are looking for a more cohesive marketing packet to better share our story and garner interest for attendance.
The event is geared around the importance of affordable housing and financial literacy. We ask architects to submit a 2-family home design and model. These models are showcased at this dinner. One is chosen as the "dream home" and will come to life (in the next year) in a designated plot in town.
We hope this project will save us time in creating the event publications. Also, with a cohesive event brand we will see a larger interest. Inevitably, helping us raise more unrestricted dollars to rehabilitate more affordable homes.
We currently have a venue, date and committee helping to coordinate this event, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the marketing materials from the last 2 years, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
Our executive director is an architect and his vision for "beautiful" affordable housing is stunning!
