First Annual Fundraiser: #TheGreatDonate
Ladies and Gentleman, on Saturday October 24, 2015 from 7pm-11pm at MADI headquarters (1659 Summit, KCMO) we will be hosting our first annual fundraiser, The Great Donate! This fundraiser is to help spread the word about our new 501c3 non-profit status of MADI Apparel's subsidiary, MADI Donations, INC. We'll also be doing some undie donating live at the event to our local partnered organizations!
Live and in person, we will be donating 50 pairs of underwear to all eight of our Kansas City partnered organizations! You heard it, that's 400 total pairs! And we could not be more excited!
Hope House, one of our Kansas City partnered organizations we will be donating to for the second time at The Great Donate fundraiser.
The event will be lots of fun, featuring live music, cocktails with KC Rieger Whiskey, Gin and Vodka, appetizers donated by Westside Local and Fevere Bread, an outdoor fall smore's bar and a silent auction! Tickets are $25 with a $10 gift card to MADI Apparel included in the price of your ticket! Fair Value of Benefits Received: $17. $8 of ticket price may be claimed as a tax-deductible charitable contribution! To purchase a ticket, click here:
We will also be accepting charitable donations at the fundraiser (which are tax deductible)! The donations will directly help survivors of domestic violence, survivors of rape, those affected by natural disaster, etc by funding additional production of underwear to be donated, out-of-state and abroad donation drop-off trips, and marketing/video PSAs to help raise awareness. This is a great way to be able to help women in need without buying underwear for yourself.
Keep in mind, underwear is the most needed and most under-donated item of clothing as it lands on the "most urgent needs list" at most womens shelters across the country. Help us change that and Make a Difference in the lives of women across the street and around the world!
