November is a busy month for fundraising events. What a great way to spend a Date Night or Mommies’ Night Out!
For the cost of a ticket, you get:
- a lovely evening out, all dressed up with somewhere to go- other than dinner and a movie!
- the chance to support a worthy cause,and
- possibly, a tax receipt for at least a portion of your ticket.
