Pueblo, CO (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
The Pueblo Community Health Center Foundation (PCHC) raised a total of $48,000 at their first ever “Murder Mystery” themed dinner fundraiser last Friday, October 25th at The Historic Union Depot in Pueblo, CO. Dinner guests enjoyed a performance by The Dinner Detectives, an interactive comedy group. Included in the event was a silent auction which, along with ticket sales, raised funds towards a $1.8 million capital expansion project at the Pueblo Community Health Center Colorado Avenue Clinic site.
Winspire partnered with the PCHC to provide three exclusive travel Experiences as auction items in their silent auction. Two of the trips sold once and one of the trips was sold twice, which raised over $2,500 for the cause. Winspire packages included Experiences such as “New Orleans Jazz & Dining”, “Cabo San Lucas Ocean View Getaway” and “Choose Your Fairmont Hotel or Resort”.
“PCHC couldn’t be more thrilled with the event or the response of our attendees to it,” says Chief Development/Foundation Officer Laura Kelly, “Large silent auctions are labor and time-intensive, but we wanted to be able to offer high-quality items and a way to enhance our profits on the event. The ability to partner with Winspire was win-win for our organization. PCHC had three, incredible trips and our donors had the opportunity to support us while enjoying the benefits of winning these experiences. We will definitely be back next year to enhance our auction offerings again.”
