Building Goodness Foundation’s annual Battle of the Bands and Rockin’ Auction is the organization’s annual fundraiser, providing support for the work that we do year-round while also giving you a fun night out on the town! Guests will rock the night away while enjoying delicious food and drink and rallying around five local bands, including Lord Nelson and others. You can vote early and often for your favorite band and the one that raises the largest total will win the battle – and bragging rights.

As part of the event, BGF will also host a live auction with premium items generously donated by Charlottesville’s most elite builders, designers, and suppliers, such as a custom outdoor kitchen or a deluxe garden shed and potting area. The event will also include a silent auction, featuring one-of-a-kind experiences and packages.

Advance tickets will be available beginning August 1, 2014 online and at Charlottesville-area retails locations for only $99. Between August 20 and the event, tickets will be $150. With live bands battling it out onstage plus two auctions and great food and drink, you won’t want to miss it!

The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is a fundraising event honoring the life-long contributions of our Canine Caregivers.  It presents an opportunity for people to be empowered through their canine companion partnerships and to contribute to cancer cures through the mission of the American Cancer Society.

Canine companions demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security, compassion, and no judgments of cancer survivors abilities or appearances.  The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is an irresistible way to partner with your canine best friend, smile, and make new friends – canine & human.
