Celebrating 50 Years of Service with Harrison Ford

New Beginnings 50 Years - Fundraising Event with Harrison Ford

This year the board and executive management of New Beginnings made a decision to try a new fundraising model in place of our annual gala and to launch a year-long celebration of our 50th year of service. Given the recent natural disasters, the many non-profit galas every year, and the tremendous staff effort necessary to organize a gala, we decided to hold a different kind of event that would reflect our appreciation of the support we receive and truly be a celebration for all who attend.

To that end, on September 23rd we hosted a very intimate event (only 36 people) with Harrison Ford that included a mimosa reception where guests had the opportunity to meet Harrison, have a keepsake photo taken with him, and then enjoy an engaging interview with Harrison during lunch. All guests received a signed, numbered poster from Harrison. To attend the event, we requested an annual $5,000 donation to the agency to advance our work in the community with veterans, the homeless, and mentally ill.
