Payne County Youth Services is accepting reservations, sponsorships, and donations of silent and live auction items for its annual fundraising event, An Evening to Remember, set for Friday, April 21st, at 6:30 p.m., at the Wes Watkins Center. The evening will feature the Mentalist and sleight of hand talents of world-renowned performer David Magee. Catering will be provided by Texas Roadhouse.
“We are so excited to be able to bring such high caliber entertainment to Stillwater,” stated Blaire Atkinson, Chairperson of the PCYS Board of Directors. “It’s going to be a great evening for a worthy cause.”
The live auction is always fun and will return this year as an opportunity for bidders to purchase items for the agency as well as to take home. Silent auction items will also be available, ranging from filled baskets from local businesses to various unique experiences which may include a free stay at a hotel or cabin, restaurant experiences, and handmade artwork and jewelry pieces.
“This is one of our major fundraising events each year”, stated Janet Fultz, Executive Director of PCYS. “Our guests always have a great time while supporting the essential services PCYS provides to the communities we serve”. Janet Fultz, Executive Director, added, “We provide a variety of services to all of Payne County, with our largest number of clients coming from Stillwater and Cushing. We never charge directly to families for our services, so successful fundraising is critical to our ability to meet our mission to provide free quality services for the positive development and recovery of children, youth, and families.” Fultz continued, “With uncertainty of funding from both the state and federal levels growing, our community support is even more important!”
Cost for the evening is $75 per person or $750 per table for 10. Sponsorships include: Event Presenter, $3,000; Event Sponsor, $1,500; Table Sponsor, $1,000; Friendship Sponsor, $500. Premium sponsorships included free drink tickets and premium parking.
