The High Fives Foundation recently hosted the Ninth Annual Squaw Valley Prom which successfully raised $35,000 in ticket sales, and which garnered a $13,000 donation from event proceeds presented to co-host nonprofit organization CHARITYSMITH.
CHARITYSMITH served as the original host of the Squaw Valley Prom, however, High Fives has taken the reins of this signature fundraiser in recent years. Nine hundred supporters purchased prom tickets and enjoyed a night of 1990s themed attire and music.
“We are thrilled with this generous contribution and honored to collaborate with High Fives, a truly inspiring and dedicated group that really makes a difference,” said Jill Dobbs, executive director of CHARITYSMITH. “This donation enables our organization to continue providing services such as the creation and administration of memorial websites and the processing of donations made in memory of a loved one.”
CHARITYSMITH Nonprofit Foundation is a national society that administers over 100 memorial funds including scholarships, medical and cancer research grants, funds for military families, and other charitable causes. For those who feel inspired to do so, CHARITYSMITH offers an expedient pathway to charitable giving in memory of those who have passed. Quite simply, CHARITYSMITH provides accessible memorial fund management by survivors who wish to honor loved ones. For more information about CHARITYSMITH, visit www.charitysmith.org.
