Our scholarship recipients
On Saturday, Safi Life held our very first Holiday Fundraiser. It took place at Lillith's Corner, a new (month old!) venue for parties and events, in Los Angeles, California. It was a magical night of entertainment, delicious food, meeting new friends, and welcoming old.
The combined ambiance of the event space and the wonderful holiday decorations, supplied even more fun for our raffle and silent auction. We were blessed to receive donations that ranged from an exclusive weekend trip to services from local businesses. How exciting it was to watch as the raffle ticket numbers were announced! Our silent auction was held online enabling people who could not attend to still be a part of the festivities. As our guests migrated upstairs for drinks and hot cocoa, each of our current students' biographies were available for our guests to learn more about each young woman on a personal level. As many in attendance wanted to know more about the history of our foundation, we had an informative video that highlighted our mission, and an interview with our Safi.
The goal was simple for this event. Raise enough funds to enable our 10 current students to attend one more year of college. With over 60 people in attendance, we are excited to report that we were able to raise over $2,000.00! There are still donations that have been made on our site, which we will be anxious to share with you at a later date. We could not have achieved this successful evening without the help of our wonderful volunteers. Their passion to support our organization is a continued inspiration! We, at Safi Life, all volunteer our services so that our students will receive 100% of the donations for their scholarship education.
During this holiday season, please consider taking a look at our website, www.safilife.org, to learn more about our mission. There are many ways to be involved in making a difference in even one young woman's life. Education is the key to providing a successful future. Thank you for being a part of this journey! We have included a few pictures of our event!! ENJOY! We wish you and your family a holiday filled with peace and love.
