Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect at this event?
You can expect an exciting evening that starts with a cocktail hour and silent auction, then at 7:00 p.m. we’ll move into dinner and an inspiring program, a live auction, and a fund-a-need segment.

How do I select my meal for dinner?
As soon as meal selections go live, we’ll reach out and invite you to make your selections! There will be gluten-free and vegan selections for our guests with food sensitivities.

Is my A Night of REST ticket deductible as a charitable donation?
Tickets are not tax-deductible, but any gifts you make during the evening including auction purchases (deductible less the value of the auction item) and fund-a-need donations (fully tax-deductible) are. We encourage all guests to consider a meaningful donation above and beyond their ticket.

How do matching gifts work?
Corporate matching funds are an easy way to leverage the impact of a gift, at no cost to you. Guests are encouraged to submit for a corporate match if possible. Auction items and fund-a-need gifts are also eligible for the match. Please note REST cannot request matching funds from any employer; this can only be done by the employee. Please contact REST if you have a specific question about getting your gift matched.

What should I wear?
Cocktail attire is encouraged. You can see photos of previous galas in our Facebook albums.
