SWP Gives Back
SEARCH Foundation Raffle Fundraiser
“By event pros, for event pros. Special Events Assistance, Relief & Crisis Help (SEARCH) Foundation was formed in 1997 to assist event, meetings and catering professionals faced with a life threatening illness. Since that time, it has expanded to include not only illness, but catastrophic occurrences.
Crisis means many things to many people. Your entire neighborhood washed away in a flood, being ravaged by wildfires, or lost in a tornado. A routine check-up coming back with the dreaded words “you have cancer”. A car accident that leaves you impaired or hospitalized for an extended period of time. SEARCH Foundation has been a lifeline for many Event Industry Professionals at the most difficult or times. Please consider making a donation through SWP to continue the SEARCH Foundations good work within our communities.”Purchase your SEARCH fundraiser raffle tickets!
