Advocates at SAY Soirée Raise $397,011 to support housing, counseling, and career services for youth
On Saturday, April 14th 350 caring adults gathered in Downtown Santa Rosa to attend our annual fundraiser, SAY Soirée – the first fundraiser ever to be held by a nonprofit in the newly reunified Courthouse Square.
This sold-out event raised $397,011 of critical unrestricted revenue to support SAY’s housing, counseling, and career services for homeless, vulnerable, and at-risk youth in Sonoma County. Of the funds raised, $203,000 was generated by paddle raises during the Fund A Future portion of the evening! This was largely made possible by an unprecedented and spontaneous quadruple match at the $1,000 level by SAY’s Board of Directors, the John Jordan Foundation, and Bret Martin and the Martin Family Trust.
SAY Soirée was made possible by more than 300 donors, 75 volunteers, 41 sponsors and partners, and of course our amazing caring staff and board members that work with and support our young people every day. See below for a gallery of photos from our evening together!
