You make the difference!

Thank you for agreeing to host a table at the WellSky Foundation’s inaugural gala! We are so thrilled to have you and your guests join us at our event inspired by “A Thomas Crown Affair” on Saturday, Jan. 28.

The success of this event is a direct result of your support, compassion, and willingness to introduce your network to the impactful work of the WellSky Foundation. We are so grateful for your contributions to this cause. Together, we can raise crucial donations to fund our mission to improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations by removing social barriers to recovery and wellness.

The information below provides an overview of your role as a table host and downloadable documents you can share with your guests.

Before the Event

Submit your guest list

The table you are hosting has room for 10, including you. Help us ensure every seat is filled! Once confirmed, send a list of your guests’ names and email addresses to Sydney.Bridges@WellSky.com and our team will register them for the event.

The deadline to submit your guest list is January 23, 2023, to ensure they are registered in advance and receive important email communication prior to the event.

Communicate event expectations

Our goal is to raise critical funds to support the WellSky Foundation’s mission. It’s no secret that there are significant gaps in our current health care system. So much of the wellness of a patient depends not on the healthcare they receive, but on their particular social determinants of health: does the individual have access to safe housing? Regular meals? A support system? Transportation to get to the doctor?

There are millions of Americans for whom the answer to these questions is “NO.” That’s why the WellSky Foundation is dedicated to partnering with other nonprofits that show up every day for the people depending on them for food, shelter, advocacy, kindness, and care.

It’s in this spirit that we ask that you share this auction and raffle information with your guests as you encourage them to open their hearts in support of the foundation. We are depending on our generous table hosts and their guests to bid on the amazing selection of auction items, purchase raffle tickets, and raise their paddles to donate to this important cause.

Bridging the gaps in our system is bigger than any one person, agency, or health system. It takes all of us, so thank you for joining us in transforming the way we care for the individuals at risk within our community.
