Thank you for making this year’s Auction and Gala a huge success! With your help, we raised over $300,000, 20% over our original goal!
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to all for their generous and unwavering support of the 2023 Transformation Celebration Gala in August. Belief in the mission of the seven ministries of ABCCM propelled us toward success that met and surpassed even our most ambitious expectations. The goal for the Gala was $250,000 and $300,000 was raised! Your many contributions have helped us create a foundation of support that propels forward the lives of those most in need.
The incredible generosity of this year’s Auction donors, as well as the fundraising success of the Gala, has brought ABCCM to an exciting juncture. Thanks to the overwhelming response and the extraordinary number of items donated for the Transformation Celebration Silent Auction, we are inviting you to “A Sharing Affair,” an extension of the Auction featuring many fantastic items contributed by our neighbors and partners in our community and beyond! This Sharing Affair is a continuation of the celebration of generosity and the transformation of lives which was kickstarted in the August Gala.
So, how does the Sharing Affair work? We have more items available for you to see on our Transformation Celebration page at competitive prices. You can go to abccm.givesmart.com and start browsing and buying right away. These listings will be available for immediate purchase up to Wednesday Sept. 13th, after which any remaining items will be converted to an Auction format through Friday Sept. 15th. We ask that all winners pick these items up within the week, as we are in the process of expanding our Servant Leadership Center and we need more space for this upcoming period of growth, so everything must go!
Finally, to wrap up the festivities, you will have a chance to come shop in-person and make us an exclusive deal at our outdoor sale on Saturday Sept. 16th, which will feature fine art pieces, vintage collectibles, and cherished household goods. Please join us from 10am to 4pm at our office: 20 Twentieth Street, Asheville NC 28806. All the money raised will be added to the grand total of the Transformation Celebration, so we can continue to watch that number rise with every purchase made.
Please join ABCCM at any or all of these events as we continue our journey of giving – and caring. We’re looking forward to your continued partnership in restoring and maintaining the dignity of every person and bringing hope in Christ’s name to our neighbors in Buncombe County.
