Megan Schowengerdt | VHF Development Director

VHF would like to give a BIG thank you to all those who participated in our first Red Tie Online Auction! The bidding was competitive and all for a great cause: supporting our individuals and families living with inherited bleeding disorders. Together we raised $2,747 from the online auction…wow!

A special thank you goes out to our sponsors, CSL Behring and Accredo. And a shout-out to those who purchased tickets for our in-person spring event that had to be cancelled – your ticket donation back to VHF were much appreciated. All together the event raised $7,527!

We’d also like to recognize the members of our Red Tie Soiree Host Committee for this event, who worked so hard to procure donations, send out invitations and help plan the event. Despite having to cancel our in-person fundraiser, your efforts were much appreciated:

Kate Breitbeil
Jeanette Dupree
Kendall Fitzpatrick
Tory Gilliam
Murai Johnson
Beth Leftwich
Kathy Mortimer
Jean Parnell
Harrison Ravn
Beth Smith
Don Smith
Sarahbeth Spasojevich (Chair)
Megan Whiteaker

And finally, we had a number of amazing donations for this event, some of which we were unable to use for this online auction due to COVID-19 restrictions, time constraints, size of items, etc. We hope to be able to re-purpose those later this year or even early into next year for other fundraisers. Thanks so much to all who donated items!

If you didn’t get a chance to bid, but still wish to support, we would be so thankful for anything you are able to give during this unprecedented time. Please go here to donate online.
