Event description

Description

Support the City of Oaks Foundation's Give Play Program by giving on-line and then coming out to Boxcar Bar & Arcade to play games, drink beer, and bid on cool silent auction prizes at our Happy Hour Fundraiser on Wednesday, October 25th from 5:00pm - 7:00pm.

Our Give Play program helps under-resourced children around Raleigh attend outdoor, active summer camps and nature programs through the City of Raleigh's Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department. Your donations will help send local kids to camp in 2018.


Boxcar Bar & Arcade gives back to local chartities through their "Drink for a Cause" Wednesdays. A percentage of all beer sales on October 25th will also be donated to the Give Play program.



How to Give: Three easy ways

You can support our Give Play program three ways. You can give on-line using the donation button on this page (or the one on our website), you can make the winning bid on one of our silent auction prizes, or you can just purchase a beer from BoxCar on Wednesday, October 25th and a portion of your purchase will support the Give Play program.


How you are making a difference: Give Play

Each year hundreds of children who want to participate in the City’s summer camps and nature programs do not because their families can’t afford the fees. The Foundation’s Give Play program offers elementary and middle school aged children the opportunity to get outdoors and connect with nature, and to have fun and build social skills along the way.

By underwriting scholarships, we help children develop an appreciation for the natural world and we get them outside and active, developing healthy habits that last their lifetimes.


The Auction and Happy Hour

Our Happy Hour Fundraiser is Wednesday, October 25th from 5:00pm-7:00pm at Boxcar Bar & Arcade at 330 W Davie St. in Raleigh (next to The Pit BBQ restaurant).


Several silent auction items will be available during Happy Hour. Bids will be taken live at the event, through 7:00PM. We have a growing list of sponsors who have donated prizes for our Silent Auction. Last year's auction included items from sponsors such as:


  • The Red and White Shop
  • NCSU Athletics
  • Raleigh FC
  • Trophy Brewing
  • Larry’s Coffee
  • Oak City Cycling Project
  • Chef Jason Smith and the 18 Restaurant Group
  • Raleigh Little Theatre
  • Great Outdoor Provision Company
  • Numerous gifts from private donors, including the Joslin Family and Kellam-Wyatt Farm

An updated list of auction items can be found: HERE



Even More Prizes!

Anyone who gives $25 or more on-line before or during the event will receive a "Golden Ticket" bag of goodies from the City of Oaks Foundation, and can enjoy free snacks on the patio.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to attend the event?

Boxcar Bar & Arcade is a bar, so while children accompanied by a parent are welcome, parents should be aware that patrons will be consuming alcohol on the premises. Guests should bring proper identification if they wish to order an alcoholic beverage. As the hour gets later, Boxcar reserves the right to only admit individuals of legal drinking age.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Contact the Foundation at 919-996-4773 or at info@cityofoaksfoundation.org. More information about the event is available here: HERE
