What to Expect at the EACM Spring Fling

Here’s what you can expect to find at the EACM Spring Fling: An Evening of Festive Generosity on Saturday, March 7.

Attire

Say goodbye to the gloom and grey of winter and let the Spring Fling theme inspire a splash of your favorite colors! This is not a formal event and we suggest cocktail party attire.

Check-In

Check-in will begin around 6:00 pm in the lobby of the Founders Union building. You don't need to bring a physical ticket. We'll check you in by name from our list of ticket purchases and reservations. If you purchase Church Basket raffle tickets in advance, you will have a 7-foot strip waiting for you at check-in.

Doors to the event space open at 6:30 pm. At that point, dinner will be ready and the cash bar will be open with beer, wine, and spirits. You can also bid on auction items and add your raffle tickets to your favorite church baskets.

Visit the main 2020 Fundraiser page to purchase tickets and learn more.

You do NOT have to present to win.

Gift Basket Raffle – Buy a strip of raffle tickets to use toward dozens of themed baskets. Classic themes include movie night, UK and UofL gear, baby shower, gardening, etc!  Add more tickets to your favorite baskets to increase your chances of winning!

At the event: $50 for a strip of raffle tickets as “Tall-As-You-Are.” Or… get the Early Bird Special when you buy online in advance and get a 7-foot strip of tickets for the same $50. Your tickets will be waiting for you at the event so you won’t have to wait in line! Ticket sales cutoff is Wednesday, March 4.

Spring Forward Challenge – Make the biggest impact!  Give directly to the Annual Fund of Eastern Area Community Ministries and your investment will help stabilize families and avert a crisis. Your gifts keep the heat on, prevent evictions, and maintain clean water running in homes. You underwrite English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, hot meals to homebound seniors, and keep clean diapers on babies’ bottoms.  Is there any better value?
