Beer, Bourbon and Boots were on full display at SoMi Somerset Academy’s charity Pop Event, held this year on October 13th. The event, which was attended by more than 200 guests and raised more than $8,500 for SoMi Somerset Academy, was produced by One Day One Charity, and the actual location were teased with a series of clues on social media until finally being divulged on the day of the actual party.
The pop up event was held at Vignette Gardens at 12301 Miller Drive and dazzled its attendees with delicious food, an open bar, music, photo booths and even a mechanical bull.
SoMi Somerset Academy has always believed in creating an enriching educational environment for their students, and central to that is innovative technology. This mission has allowed them to consistently achieve a letter grade A. Unfortunately this technology is expensive. Because SoMi always thinks outside the box, they partnered with One Day One Charity in order to plan and market their fundraiser. The funds raised will be used to purchase interactive smart panels, which will be an excellent addition to the classroom.
SoMi Somerset Academy partnered with One Day One Charity, which is a non-profit organization (501)(c)(3). The charity’s goal is to focus on making fundraising events fun. All are events will pop up in dazzling venues and will be kept secret until the day of the event. They blast weekly clues and hints about the location and theme. Its goal is to bring philanthropy into the forefront of everyone’s weekend plans and allow them to have a great time, while supporting our communities’ local charities.
“We are thrilled to have been part of such a worthy cause and know that SoMi will continue to do amazing things for their students,” said Veronica Rives, board member of One Day One Charity.
One Day One Charity’s next pop up event will benefit The Marc Jaiden Foundation on January 26, 2018. The Marc Jaiden Foundation brings free vision care to the most needy communities throughout the world so be on the look out for those clues!
