DACU – Networking for Our Future

December 8, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

You can help us advance health equity in Doña Ana County! We are galvanizing supporters from across the country to champion our two current projects:

  • Participatory mapping with underserved residents and decision makers
  • Our time bank

Now is the perfect time to donate. Everything the team raises up to $5,000 will be matched fifty cents to the dollar by the Paso del Norte Health Foundation Challenge Fund.

There are multiple ways to get involved!

  1. Visit the online auction at https://www.32auctions.com/dacu to bid on 29 innovative services. Offerings include guided hikes, beer making, meeting facilitation, and yummy desserts. The auction ends on 12/8, so don’t delay.
  2. At the same website you can buy tickets for our networking fundraiser on 12/8. Just $15 will get you a tasty lunch and a seat at our innovative speed networking event! Seating is limited, so buy your tickets soon: see the attached flyer for more information.
  3. If you’d rather keep it simple and make a donation, you can do that at the auction website as well.
  4. Donate an innovative service for our online auction. See the list of possibilities below for inspiration. Services can be provided in-­‐person or virtually, so everyone can participate

The event will include a light lunch, a speed networking event where attendees will share their creative ideas for improving the wellbeing of county residents, and final bidding on the auction of services.

Please contact Kari Bachman at 575-­‐496-­‐4330 for more information. We look forward to engaging with you in this exciting work!
