Entry is priced at $500 per couple, and all proceeds are divvied up amongst the seven children’s charities Beth has selected for the night. On average, Beth estimates the party raises close to $80,000. But before the event was a fundraiser, it was just another party.
“It took so much effort and so much money,” she says. “It seemed like more good should be coming out of our party to help our community.” So she decided to the turn the annual bash into one of Springfield’s must-attend fundraisers.
Seven years later, the event is still going strong. Beth and Dwayne hire at least 28 staff to work, and guests get to enjoy the beautiful view, delicious food, drinks and great conversation.
