The 5th Annual Charity Bash hosted by OVM Financial raised more than $17,000 for charities across Hampton Roads. The event, held on September 20th at The Shack on 8th Street, had more than 350 attendees–each of which, donated a minimum of $35 to a charity of their choice.
“Charity Bash was created to inspire our community to give back to the charitable organizations that they are passionate about,” said Chief Executive Officer, Adam Newman. “This event wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors, employees, partners, and friends, and we are humbled each year by their generosity.”
Each year, OVM Financial takes the grand total of all donations made and matches the funds to donate to a charity of OVM Financials’ choice. This year, OVM Financial donated a total of $17,125 to Roc Solid Foundation.
Between the funds raised from Charity Bash attendees and OVM Financials’ match, the event raised a total of $34,250. This year’s grand total is the largest in the event’s history!
“Each year, Charity Bash continues to set a new precedent,” said Chief Executive Officer, Adam Newman. “We are very proud of the results of this year’s bash and honored to have the privilege to share the results with so many deserving organizations.”
All 501(c)(3) organizations are welcome to participate in our annual Charity Bash. To participate, encourage those that would like to attend to make their donation payable to your non-profit. In exchange for their donation, they will receive a ticket to the bash. Tickets can be purchased from our corporate headquarters or Virginia Beach office(s) during the weeks leading up to Charity Bash. Our next bash will be held in the fall of 2019.
