We would like to share a bit of good news on behalf of our partner Building Tomorrow regarding a recent fundraising event which staff from The West Foundation were honored to attend:
Build-a-School Night 2023: On the Rise will forever be a night to remember. As Building Tomorrow’s Co-Founder & Chief Dreamer said in his remarks, “Good can indeed rise,” and the turnout and collective impact we witnessed last Friday evening is surely evidence of that.
Together, with nearly 340 guests in the room, and thanks to our dedicated event and table sponsors, we raised an incredible $342,997 on Friday, some $50,000 more than we raised in 2022. These funds will help us to reach 34,299 learners toward our goal of half a million by the end of 2025 with life-changing literacy and numeracy. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this possible.
We are grateful for our event sponsors – Second Presbyterian Church, The Loughrey Family, Barnes & Thornburg, PNC Bank, iHeart Media Indy, Hightower Graphics, SoBro Spirits, and Upland Brewing Co. – for their generous support, our 12 table sponsors, all of our silent and live auction item donors, our event volunteers, and all of you for your continued support of and belief in our work.
Mwebale nyo (thank you so much), and we hope to see you next year!
The Building Tomorrow Team
