our annual fundraising event

I-REACH 2, INC.’S ANNUAL I-REACH FOR ART

 

 

Who would have thought that a large swath of the community would suddenly find themselves entirely interacting virtually? COVID 19 has accelerated the timeline of the virtual world to being a mainstream place to hang out and socialize in daily life. That is a really powerful cultural shift in getting more people excited about spending time in virtual worlds and hanging out with their friends and family there.

I-REACH 2, INC.’s annual fundraiser was postponed in August due to the pandemic until September 24, 2020.

An online silent auction was held from 9/17-9/23.  The auction featured a variety of items that  included a glamping package, beautiful works of donated art, golfing package, and many other items. The silent ran for 7 days and attracted donors from around Wyoming and  in Colorado, Washington, and even as far as Florida.

This years I-Reach for Art live event was held in an intimate gathering at the Ralph Ballard Academy. Those who could not attend were afforded an opportunity to join in the even virtually.

The event kicked off with live music from Michael Stirrett and Beth Feronti. Governor Mark Gordon followed with a brief recorded message that highlighted community and Wyoming Pride!  He ended his speech by reminding us, “Wyoming is a great place. We take care of our own.”

Individuals were also able to virtually join in the live auction led by Rodeo Rick.  The “Rock Solid” auction consisted of the 5 Rocks residing in the beautiful court yard at the Ralph Ballard Academy, a painting from quick draw artist Ginny Butcher, and two flea market flips recreated by employees and IR2 participants Attendees were also able to purchase  participant art displayed in the studio.

I-REACH 2, would like to thank all that attended both virtually and in person.  We couldn’t do what we do without all of your help. Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you all next year.

Planning is underway for the 2021 event. If you’d like to serve on the committee please contact Tina.
