Spark Ventures- Business Driven Philanthropy

April 28th was a beautiful evening.  I had the privilege of attending the Spark Ventures fundraising event.  It was an amazing night!  A wine tasting, silent and live auctions, delicious food, and kind-hearted, generous people made it a perfect night.  Below is Spark Ventures mission statement.  I’ve included their website, because there is much more to read about than I can put in my post. The dedication, compassion, and passion these people show for their organization is contagious!

If you are looking for a great way to make a difference, contact Spark Ventures and see how you can help!
