Thank you to our clients who support our Veterans every day with missions that provide ongoing services year-round.
In recognition of Veterans Day & America The Beautiful - the land our Veterans honorably protect - we are offering a $250 discount for any non-profits who reserve the USA Explorer in the month of November for an upcoming event.

USA Explorer Package - Choose between any of our 5 Popular USA Destinations: New York, Sonoma, Orlando, Boston, and Scottsdale for (2)

Before we close out our newsletter in gratitude , we are sharing a success story from our client, North Carolina Opera, who recently surpassed fundraising goals with their first ever Virtual Event! Congratulations to North Carolina Opera!!

Have a listen to the delightful, Ellen Fort - Development Director, as she shares her passion for Opera, fundraising strategies for going "virtual" for the first time, the importance of a terrific auctioneer and predictions for the future of fundraising events.

Arts & Culture are a necessary part of enriching and inspiring our lives - much like Travel! The Opera, the Arts and travel provide us ways to explore the human experience and to take us on journeys far from our every day lives.

To that we wish North Carolina Opera and all of our clients continuing success as they transition fundraising practices.
