Interested in helping out at our annual Swine Social on the third Saturday in July?

Ways to help:

1) Donate your company's good or services

Silent auction donation or in-kind goods/services donation information.

Greetings local business owners,

If you could support community members in need and the advancement of a Whitefish Bay High School graduating senior, you would. Right? And if you could do that through a simple, in-kind gift of goods or services, you would do that right away. Right?

Well, here is your chance! The 82 Project Foundation – a non-profit organization formed in 2012 by 1982 Whitefish Bay High School alumni – seeks in-kind gifts for a
silent auction as part of the organization’s annual fundraiser, the Swine Social Pig Roast, held the third Saturday in July. Proceeds support The 82 Project Foundation giving back to the community through:

The Senior Scholarship, providing funds for post-secondary education to a Whitefish Bay High School graduating senior.
The Classmate Award, delivering funds and assistance to Whitefish Bay High School graduates and families in need, due to health crisis, loss to disaster, etc.
Social Events that facilitate connections, friendships, and fellowship to strengthen the fabric of our community’s social safety net.

The Swine Social welcomes everyone and offers homemade food, great company, a bonfire, and your silent auction item and/or donor recognition name and logo will be on display at our event and on our website. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law, and we will provide a donation receipt with our tax-exempt ID number for your records.

For more information about The 82 Project Foundation visit our website at The82Project.org. If you have any questions or need further information, please email mj.whiting@the82project.org

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Sincerely,
The 82 Project Foundation
