We are excited and honored to be the Auction Co Chairs for the 2019 Denim & Diamonds Spring Bash.

The 2019 Denim & Diamonds Bash will be held Saturday, April 27, 2019, on AAMC’s south campus (adjacent to the Annapolis Exchange Building on Jennifer Road in Annapolis). Please join us for a night of fun, food and dancing under the stars. The spring bash tent party will feature fabulous cuisine, a great band, unique auction items, and a “come as you like” theme.

The Bash will benefit the expansion of mental health services at Anne Arundel Medical Center to meet this crucial and growing need in our region. In 2017, AAMC’s Adult and Pediatric Emergency Departments cared for 1,837 patients with a primary diagnosis of a mental health illness, including substance abuse, and the numbers continue to climb. In fact, our county leadership and the county’s recent Community Health Needs Assessment identified mental health as one of the most critical and unmet health issues facing our region. The 2019 Bash is an important opportunity to provide critical funding for mental health care. Knowing that this event could positively affect the lives of thousands of people, we quickly signed on and hope you will again too.

As past donors, we are sending this letter early for several reasons. First, in the effort to improve, we have made form changes for ease of item details. Secondly, we are limited to 100 donations, so even if you don’t have everything all together yet, please let us know you are planning to donate, and we can add you to the list.

We will be using BidPal this year and are asking for your help in marketing your company and donation. The item description, what the bidder will read on their phone at the event, must be less than 300 characters, including spaces.

The success of this year’s Bash is dependent on strong community and corporate support. Your gift will touch the lives of our patients from across the region who deserve the best available care. As the auction co-chairs for this event, we look forward to working with you again and are here to answer all your questions. We thank you in advance for your support.
