SRVS 23rd Annual Sparkling Nights
$100 per ticket
Sparkling Nights is annual fundraiser hosted by SRVS to benefit our mission of providing the services that people with disabilities need to live meaningful lives as members of their communities.
The event has raised more than $2 million since its inception in 1999 as a fundraiser to support SRVS programs. The founding of Sparkling Nights, originally called the Spirit of SRVS, grew out of conversations between SRVS board member John Barzizza and SRVS staff. The idea was to raise money and awareness for the nonprofit.
Sparkling Nights has grown considerably in the past 20 years, with the first event attracting approximately 90 people and raising $10,000. Today, Sparkling Nights is SRVS’ largest fundraiser and attracts more than 700 attendees and raises an average of $200,000 each year. In 2018, a record $224,395 was raised. Funds from Sparkling Nights support SRVS programs that include children’s services, residential supports and employment.
