ICS hosts four major fundraising events each year. Empty Bowls in the spring, Eat, Drink and be Giving in the fall, Play it Forward Golf Classic around Veterans Day and Strut for Success fashion show in January. Each event is unique experience drawing our community together in fun, creative and delicious ways! In addition to ticket sales we also raise funds though silent auction and raffles at the events.
Eat, Drink and Be Giving:
Making a difference never tasted so good! Eat, Drink, & Be Giving is a collaborative charity event that benefits two local non-profits through a night filled with food samplings from local restaurants, breweries, and wineries, with live music and a silent auction. Proceeds from this year’s event benefit AZYP and ICS. At the end of the night, representatives will go “toe-to-toe” and compete in a friendly Grape Stomp for a Cause that will raise money to help these organizations stomp out poverty in our community!
Play a round at Omni Tucson National and help change lives! There will be plenty of on-course contests including Hole-In-One opportunities, Closest to the Pin, and Longest Drive. Reception with a dinner buffet and bar, plus a silent auction and raffle with exciting packages. Proceeds from the tournament supports services for the many people ICS helps.
Empty Bowls, a fundraiser to Fight Hunger and Feed Hope:
our annual empty bowls event to assist those struggling with hunger in Pima County. Attendees will select a beautiful handmade pottery bowl made and donated by local artists and sample signature soups, breads and desserts donated by local restaurants and food partners.
Strut for Success:
Our annual fashion show benefiting the Single Moms Scholars Program at ICS gives donors and attendees an opportunity to directly hear the stories of the women currently in the program and the effect it has had on their lives and the lives of their children.
