Attend the Event
Whether you are a long-time supporter or a first timer, we welcome you to attend our premier fundraising event. Nearly 400 guests will experience Malian culture with our African market, entertainment and program. You’ll dine on the delicious Little America Buffet while participating in exciting live and silent auctions, and balloon raffle activity.  Learn more about the work we do and support a worthy cause by purchasing a table or individual seat.

Give a Financial Contribution
Unable to attend but still want to support our fundraiser? We are grateful for any and all financial contributions — no matter the size. Your tax-deductible donation will support the Alliance in 2020 and help us reach even more villagers in the Ouelessebougou region of Mali. Donate today!

Make an In-Kind Donation
Our event boasts an impressive silent auction with exciting items and packages donated by our generous community. From dining to travel and sports to entertainment, there is something for everyone. Guests love to dine on (or take home) the delicious treats they win in our dessert auction. And the highlight for many is our unique African Room filled with one-of-a-kind handicrafts and art from Mali and West Africa. But that’s not all! We also have a live auction, balloon raffle and African Market for our guests to bid on or purchase exciting prizes.

We are seeking in-kind donations to include in our silent, dessert and live auctions and balloon raffle. You or your business will be recognized at the event and on social media. Please contact Emily Muir at emily@lifteachother.org to donate.

We are in need of volunteers to help day-of-the-event. Please contact Emily at emily@lifteachother.org if you can help!
