American Health Value recently had the opportunity to support and attend an annual event that had a great impact on our local community. The event was a charity auction put on by the Treasure Valley Association of Health Underwriters with the proceeds going to benefit an organization called City Light.
City Light Home for Women and Children was opened in 2000 to serve the needs of Boise's most vulnerable homeless. They offer free meals and emergency shelter to women and their children, as well as counseling and other assistance as needed.
For our contribution to the auction, we decided to put together a basket full of items from Williams-Sonoma. We went out to their store, mentioned what we were doing, and they were more than helpful.
They informed us that for every $100 gift card purchased, they donate $10 to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! Needless to say, we bought a couple of those and then used them to purchase the items for our auction basket. Williams-Sonoma even threw in a cutting board for free!
The event was a huge success with several thousand dollars being raised to benefit City Light, and our basket went for a great price! We had a wonderful time attending, and were more than honored to be able to do what we could to benefit such a worthy cause.
