Tickets on sale for 2015 Annual Celebration and Auction
Posted: March 20, 2014
MURFREESBORO — We're very happy to announce that 2015 Annual Celebration & Silent Auction tickets are ON SALE NOW!
This year's celebration will once again benefit the more than 120 individuals served by Journeys in Community Living on a daily basis.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel on Old Fort Parkway will once again serve as the host of the silent auction and awards show, which is aimed at honoring those who have played a role in helping individuals with intellectual disabilities achieve their dreams of a normal life.
The event is scheduled to be held 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the DoubleTree.
One person served by Journeys will also receive an award for the strides he or she has made over the past year towards independence. An internal panel is working to determine who this year's award winners will be.
Full details on the event, including an announcement on this year's guest speaker, will be made available at a later date, but remember to buy your table or tickets early, as last year the event did come within 10 seats of selling out.
Journeys in Community Living Development Coordinator Mark Bell said he is expecting this year's event to build even more on last year's successes.
"This event is entering it's fourth year and has really picked up traction over the past couple of years, becoming established as one of the area's premier silent auction fundraisers," he said. "I really expect us to come very close to having a sell-out event this year, and I know that the crew we have out there hunting down auction items is the absolute best in the area. They will bring back some real treasures for people to bid on this year.
Bell said he and his staff of volunteer fundraisers learned a lot last year about what makes an event successful. He and the staff are also taking advice from those who attended last year about ways to make things better.
"We are definitely going to streamline things," he said. "Faster auction checkout. Access to your seats as soon as you arrive. A more condensed awards program. These are all issues from last year expressed to us by supporters and we have responded by addressing these issues head on. We know folks will be pleased when they leave the DoubleTree the night of the event."
