Online Harvest Ball 2020
Welcome to our Online Harvest Ball September, 2020
Dear Friends, Family, and Colleagues,
If this were a year like any other year…
- Right now, Quest families would be actively planning our much anticipated, annual Harvest Ball.
- We’d be shopping & soliciting for the many wonderful prizes that populate our raffles & auctions.
- And we’d be arranging for the food, drink, & entertainment that delights all of our supporters.
But, as you know, this is not a year like any other year. And this is not the first event that we have had to cancel due to the pandemic. The Harvest Ball may be the high point of our fundraising efforts, and we do depend on our fundraising to keep Quest alive. But we all have had to adjust to the new reality brought on by COVID-19. And health and safety must be our priority.
So, even though we cannot gather together in person, Quest is asking if you can still show your support for our program. If you can, support us by purchasing a sponsorship or ticket to this year’s Online Harvest Ball.
Despite all that has happened, Quest continues to work with our participants in as many ways as we can, including an extensive series of virtual programs and remote learning sessions. In accordance with statewide requirements, we suspended onsite programs on March 17th, but continue to provide vital services through any and all alternate means available to us, including email, SMS, and Zoom. Our staff remains fully employed and devoted to delivering these much needed forms of interaction and engagement. But the State of New Jersey is only providing a fraction of the funding needed to sustain Quest’s day-to-day operations.
All the money received though our Online Harvest Ball will help to offset the loss from reduced state funding and the actual cost of the program.
Here are some suggestions on how to support this event:
- Gold Leaf Sponsor in the amount of $5,000
- Silver Leaf Sponsor in the amount of $2,500
- Bronze Leaf Sponsor in the amount of $1,000
- I would like to purchase ________ ticket(s) in the amount of $200 per ticket
- I would like to make a donation in the amount of $___________
