2015 Annual Fundraising Banquet Sponsor Opportunities

WebGraphic

On October 8, 2015, the Raffa Clinic will be holding its Annual Fundraising Banquet: “LIFE: Remembered.”

We will be celebrating 15 years of ministry in Hunt County. We are asking you for your corporate or individual support of our 2015 Banquet to be held at the Texas A&M UniversityCommerce banquet facilities. Our prayer is that you will sponsor this event so that the financial needs will be met to continue and expand this vital ministry.

Why sponsor the 2015 “LIFE: Remembered” Fundraising Banquet?

By sponsoring, you are allowing us to expose new people to Raffa Clinic who will contribute their time and financial support. Our supporters have made it possible for us to provide 1,732 client visits at our Greenville and Commerce clinics in 2014. Our Quinlan clinic opened in July 2015 to increase our availability to patients. Your contribution positively impacts Hunt County by providing free Pregnancy Testing, Ultrasounds and comprehensive Pregnancy and Parenting Education to those seeking skills and tools to better their family’s future. We are counting on you and your support this year.

The 2014 Fundraising Banquet produced phenomenal results with 312 guests and $66,020 in gifts. For every $1 given to sponsor the event, we received more than $5.50 in giving at the banquet. For 2015 the expenses will be approximately $15,000. Like last year, it is our desire to raise the $15,000 from sponsors beforehand so that every penny received that night will directly touch lives in our community. We would ask you to prayerfully consider the included Sponsor Packages and choose one for this year’s event.

As you can see from the packages available Sponsor Packages, we are offering great ways to promote your business. It is our desire to help promote those businesses that support Raffa Clinic. If you have questions about the different sponsor packages, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. I look forward to partnering with you to further the work of Raffa Clinic as well as benefit you.

Thank you,

Threesa Sadler

Executive Director

Raffa Clinic makes news in Quinlan

Raffa Clinic was recently discussed in The Quinlan-Tawakoni News (May 22, 2015 edition) article about Quinlan ISD school board meeting. We are so thankful for the partnership with Quinlan ISD and are looking forward to opening our new clinic in Quinlan in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned for more info about our Quinlan Open House!

Here is a portion of the article in The Quinlan-Tawakoni News by Larry Briscoe:

“A lease agreement was unanimously approved with Raffa Clinic to locate a non-profit pregnancy clinic in the portable building at the former Joe Martin campus. Locations are already in operation in Greenville and Commerce. 

Executive Director Threesa Sadler spoke to the board about the clinic’s plans to open the Quinlan office and its services. ‘You will be an asset to us,’ Kenny Stone (school board President) told Sadler. He commented on the clinic’s good reputation from those with whom he had discussed it.

Superintendent Dr. Debra Crosby also praised the clinic’s operation. She said one QISD student had walked to the Greenville clinic because she had nowhere else to go for services. 

Sadler said all services provided were free as funding came from the community including churches, groups and individuals. Sadler said the clinic began in Greenville in 2004 and provided help throughout Hunt County. The Commerce facility opened in 2010. 

Sadler said arrangements for transportation were made possible through an agreement with The Connection that provides services to county residents for other needs. She said Raffa was ready to open as soon as remodeling was complete. ‘We just finished training volunteers, and they are ready to go,’ Sadler said.

The clinic’s brochure states it is ‘committed to providing women and men with accurate information to make informed decisions about pregnancy, sexual health and relationships. Because everyone should have access to this information , all of our services are free of charge.’ Sadler said clients were able to earn points through completion of classes offered that could be used to buy clothes, diapers and other items at its boutique. 

The lease agreement is for three years. Terms include Raffa to pay the costs of remodeling the school district’s building, expected cost between $7,000 and $10,000, in lieu of the first year’s lease payments. After the first year, the group would pay $300 monthly for its use. The lease begins June 1 and ends May 31, 2018, with a three-year extension option. 

Services include pregnancy tests and options counseling; obstrical ultrasound services; and pregnancy, parenting and life skills education. The 24 hour helpline is available at 903.454.9711; text, 903.213.5126; email info@raffaclinic.org; and website http://www.raffaclinic.org.”;
