Bridging the Gap in the Foster Care Community

Gastonia Evening of Purpose

In order to ensure the safety of our sponsors, donors, and guests, Evening of Purpose 2020 is going Hybrid! How will this look? Our hybrid fundraiser will be a blend of live and virtual elements. Attendance to our live event is SOLD OUT. However, you, your family, and friends can attend our event from the comfort of your home for FREE. We will be broadcasting our event LIVE from the backyard of our office picnic style! Broadcasting will be through our various social media platforms (more information to come). You and your Watch Party, will be able to participate in ALL aspects of the event including, but not limited to, silent auction, live auction, and donating. The silent auction will be released virtually a week prior to the event date and will remain open until 7pm on event night. Silent and Live auction items can be picked up at our office or shipped (shipping costs will vary). Our event is LIVE from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm on Tuesday, September 15th. You will want to tune in live to the event in order to be included in all event festivities.

There are two ways to host a Watch Party:

1)  Host family and friends at your home or venue and tune in LIVE together.


2) Host a Google Meet Watch Party where you can invite up to 100 guests. Together, you can tune in LIVE to the event while also being able to connect with your family and friends from afar.

We are currently looking for Watch Party Ambassadors! Watch Party Ambassadors agree to host a Google Meet Watch Party, invite as many guests as possible to your Virtual Watch Party, and spread the word through social media. As a way to say thank you, each Watch Party Ambassador will receive a custom LOTC Box with various goodies, as well as, be assigned a LOTC member that will set-up and co-host your Google Meet Watch Party, so that you can enjoy and virtually entertain your guests!
