Momkus LLC Sponsors Family Shelter Service Gala
With over 400 guests in attendance, the annual Family Shelter Service Gala was a great success. Raising nearly $200,000, guests enjoyed dinner, dancing, cocktails, the music of Vital Signs and a highly moving presentation by members of the Family Shelter Service Speakers Bureau. Floral décor provided by FTD and twinkling lights set the mood for an enchanting garden theme in "The Secret Garden."
Auctioneer Renee Jones facilitated a record-breaking Fund-A-Need. Tim Kolschowsky, of the Gerald A. and Karen A. Kolschowsky Foundation challenged the audience by pledging an additional $10,000 if we reached the $60,000 mark. Supporters responded to the challenge and raised their paddles for a total of $66,785.
With the additional $10,000 from the Kolschowsky Foundation and the match from the Carl and Pat Greer Foundation, the Fund A Need portion of the evening raised an unprecedented $146,785. It was truly a magical night that helped Family Shelter Service raise much-needed funds in the face of State funding cuts.
Sponsors included Momkus LLC as well as many other community legal professionals and organizations.
