2024 Drive Out Poverty Silent Auction!

April 25, 6-9 PM

Most of us have felt the pain of a vehicle issue that has affected our day or week.  But many people deal with a lack of dependable transportation or no transportation as part of their daily lives.  You're invited to support Cars for Keeps and help us bring affordable vehicle ownership to those working hard to forge a path out of poverty.

Join us at Ripple & Company for the evening and enjoy appetizers, socializing, a silent auction, and other giving opportunities. We will share more about the heart of our organization and the impact we are making in our community, through generous donations.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 to fund Cars for Keeps Operations, plus provide funding for this summer’s vehicle placements. By attending this event, you will be directly contributing to our mission of breaking the cycle of poverty through vehicle ownership and financial education.

We would be honored to have you join us and help us towards our fundraising goal. Tickets can be purchased by clicking the link below. Your support and generosity makes our mission possible.
