The New Beginnings Ignite Cocktail party will return on Friday, April 29th. We’re going virtual again this year, and will now have watch parties so you can enjoy the event with your friends and family. We can’t wait to celebrate New Beginnings and support survivors of domestic violence together!

The event will feature a live and interactive online program, auction, and Fund-A-Need appeal.

Proceeds from Ignite go to furthering the mission of New Beginnings to empower survivors and mobilize community awareness and action to end domestic violence.

The Ignite Cocktail Party is coming to you on two platforms. You’ll want access to both to take advantage of the full experience.

  1. YouTube Live for the Ignite Program and Auction at 7:00pm. YouTube Live can be enjoyed from your mobile phone, tablet, or computer with no restrictions. You will need a basic YouTube account to participate in the YouTube chat (you’ll really want to join the chat, trust us 😉).
  2. Greater Giving for bidding and donating. This will mainly be used during the live show but be sure to check out the Live Auction, which opens Thursday at noon in Greater Giving.  You can preview the auction by clicking here and going to the “Get Started” button. You will receive a bidding link to register in Greater Giving if you haven’t already. This will allow you to place bids, and donate during the event.
