2017 Silent Auction Raises $19,000
On May 1, 2017, supporters of The Eric Fund joined the board for a fundraiser and silent auction at Nellie’s Sports Bar in Washington, DC. It was a lively and fun event, with the fabulous Ms. Ba’Naka serving as our engaging and entertaining Master of Ceremonies. With the impressive turnout and numerous exciting silent auction items, The Eric Fund raised $19,000, our most successful fundraiser to date! We are pleased to be able to use the funds raised to purchase critical assistive technology devices for people with disabilities in the metro Washington, DC, area. A special focus of the evening was on raising funds for 14-year-old James who, due to the generosity of our guests, has now received a very essential voice device that is helping to improve his communication and quality of life.
Please stay tuned for details on our 2018 fundraiser event celebrating The Eric Fund’s 20th anniversary!
