6th Annual Live It Up!
Come celebrate our nonprofit’s 35th anniversary with great food, an open bar, vibrant auction, our sought-after Wine Pull, and our signature Help Hope Live Awards. To tie in with our 35th anniversary Bubble Break campaign, the theme of the evening is Bubbles & Baubles.
All proceeds from our signature fundraising event benefit our work and mission to support community-based fundraising for people with unmet medical and related expenses due to cell and organ transplants or catastrophic injuries and illnesses. Since 1983, we’ve helped unite thousands of communities to raise more than $131 million to cover the unmet medical needs of over 9,000 patients and families in medical crisis.
Event FAQs for Guests
Doors open at 6 p.m. and so does the bar. Dinner will be served at your table during our Help Hope Live Awards presentation starting around 7:30 p.m.
The event will take place in The Residence Dining Hall of The Baldwin School (Building 1 on this map). For parking, please use the Montgomery Avenue entrance. Wheelchair-accessible parking and an elevator (with an attendant) are located to the left of the main stairs.
Cocktail attire is requested (please wear a party-ready suit and tie or dress).
Bring an umbrella for your post-event exit in case of inclement weather.
Register for the auction online before the event and share a link with your guests. Then you and your party can make your way to the open bar and hors d’oeuvres even sooner!
Guests must register with a smartphone to bid on auction items. Staff members will be happy to assist you with on-site mobile bidding on your phone.
