Funding applications are now being accepted for the 27th Annual Tiny Tim Gala Benefit. This annual benefit event of the Franciscan Healthcare Auxiliary has raised $890,000 for local health-related charities since its debut in 1987. Interested local agencies may obtain a funding application by contacting the Franciscan Healthcare Volunteer Office at 392-2709 or visit tinytimgala.org/charities.aspx. Funding guidelines are outlined on the application form. Submission deadline is March 29th.
This benefit had unprecedented success based on attendance and charitable money raised for the 2012 Tiny Tim Benefit recipients. Each year, the events are made possible with the help of more than 60 sponsors, community volunteers who give thousands of hours of their time, and many other businesses and individuals who donate their talents, time and funds to the events.
Mark your calendars for the 27th Annual Tiny Tim Gala to be held November 9, 2013 at The Waterfront Cargill Room.
