Fundraisers and Special Events
Kristi House holds two major fundraisers every year which provide vital program support to the organization which grants and public funding do not cover.
Touch A Heart Dinner & Auction at Four Seasons
Held every year, Kristi House’s signature Dinner & Auction raises money in support of Kristi House programs and services. It is generally held on the first Friday evening of November. The evening’s events include live and silent auctions featuring rare wines, exquisite vacations, elaborate chef dinners and VIP tickets. <more>
Breaking the Silence
This annual luncheon begun in 2007 builds sustaining support for Kristi House through pledge donors who make five-year gifts. In the first five years of the program, more than $1 million in gifts and pledges were generated, providing Kristi House a reliable, predictable source of annual support.
Other events hosted by Kristi House include:
Heal a Heart Happy Hours
This successful format, hosted at popular and emerging restaurants and lounges county-wide, offers a low-cost event that enables Kristi House to introduce itself to new audiences, many of whom then become regular supporters of our cause.
Often stores, restaurants and businesses in the community will hold events to raise money to directly benefit Kristi House. Jimmy Choo in Merrick Park and Whole Foods have provided significant one-day events raising as much as $8,000 for Kristi House services. Please contact us if you have an event for us!
Holiday Greeting Card Drive
The Holiday Card drive raises money for valuable programs and services. Kristi House volunteers take greeting card orders from the community in exchange for donations to the Center. Holiday Cards are then mailed to the donors’ recipients acknowledging that a gift to Kristi House was made in their honor. Please drop us an email to order yours electronically and help Kristi House save on postage
