Abby’s House Spring-Tacular fundraiser is a seven-day virtual celebration that begins next month, guaranteed to bring plenty of fun surprises.
This year’s 8th Spring-Tacular is presented by the Counseling & Assessment Clinic of Worcester LLC. The event reconnects Abby’s House with local restaurants and businesses, “lighting the way for safety, healing and new beginnings for 45 years,” according to Colleen McGoldrick, development and communications specialist at Abby’s House.
The virtual celebration and online auction begin May 7, closing on May 13 with a virtual program at 6:30 p.m. Visit www.abbyshouse.org for more info and updates.
“In previous years, the annual Spring-Tacular fundraiser has been an evening where staff, volunteers, sponsors and supporters gather in-person and sample delicious food and beverage tastings from area businesses and restaurants, bid on items in a silent auction and listen to the ways in which their generosity lifts up the women of Abby’s House,” said McGoldrick. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Abby’s House pivoted last year’s event to be virtual, keeping elements of the evening alive by featuring an online auction and virtual speaking program, allowing for safe participation from the community.
