FAQ: the 9th Annual Reproductive Equity Awards
We hope you’re saving the date for the Lilith Fund’s 9th Annual Reproductive Equity Awards, to be held September 20 in Austin. We’re looking forward to spending an evening with you two-stepping to country classics (with a twist), sippin’ on wine and local brews and enjoying southwestern hors-d’oeuvres.
In the meantime, help us by donating to the event here! And check out the answers to some questions folks have already been asking about the REA:
1. I’m not in Austin. Can I sponsor the Reproductive Equity Awards even if I can’t attend?
Yes – we invite anyone, even those who can’t attend, to sponsor the REA, buy tickets or donate as they are able. Without out-of-town support, we couldn’t meet our fundraising goal for this event!
2. Do I need to show student ID to buy the student/low-income tickets?
No – as an organization fighting for economic equity in access to reproductive services, we want our events to be accessible to all, which is why we have a $20 ticket available. And if you’d like to attend the REA for free, you can sign up to be an event volunteer… just email [email protected].
3. I have a good or service I’d like to offer for your silent auction. Whom should I contact about that?
Please email us at [email protected]. The Lilith Fund will pick up your donation, highlight your business in event publications and materials, and provide you with a letter acknowledging the tax-deductibility of your gift.
4. Will you provide vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free/locally sourced food and drink options?
Yes! We are working with local businesses to provide all of the above at our event. If you are a local vendor and want your products to be featured at the REA, please contact us at [email protected].
5. What does the Lilith Fund do with my donation?
In 2012, the Lilith Fund will give out over $80,000 in grants to Texans who are unable to afford an abortion, and the Reproductive Equity Awards is one of the main ways we raise this money. Your donation directly supports Texans’ access to safe and legal abortion.
