Stay Home RVA

Richmond’s First Non-Event Gala

Monday, April 19 – Sunday, April 25, 2021


Support Housing Stability with 3 Simple Steps:

1) Stay Home
2) Enjoy the Time/Money Saved by Not Attending an Event
3) Champion Affordable Housing by Donating to Stay Home RVA!

Your participation is crucial. Your attendance is not!

What is Stay Home RVA? Stay Home RVA is Richmond’s FIRST non-event gala to raise awareness of the need for affordable housing in our region. Stay home the week of April 19th, relax, and donate what you would normally spend going to an in-person gala event to the Better Housing Coalition. You’re an expert at staying home now!

Every dollar supports families and seniors in your community!

Why should I support Stay Home RVA? With mass job losses and wage reductions, the health pandemic laid bare the housing stability crisis that threatens our lower-income neighbors. You can’t shelter in place without a shelter! BHC is working to change that by providing more than 2,700 families and seniors high-quality, healthy homes and crucial support services so they can flourish.

By supporting Stay Home RVA, you’re investing dollars that make a difference!

Any perks for participating? Yes! After “purchasing tickets,” you’ll receive a confirmation email with an access code to our online virtual swag bag that includes these great gifts:
  • A link to a LIVE Virtual cooking class “Saturday Supper” with BHC’s President & CEO, Greta J. Harris on April 24th;
  • A downloadable list of ingredients, prep directions, substitutions and recipes;
  • A link to a “cooking moods” playlist;
  • Suggested cocktail/wine pairings; and
  • Link to a LIVE virtual Trivia Game hosted by our friends Ben & Patrick on Wednesday, April 21!

You choose your participation level – cook, play – or both! And by the way, 100% of your “ticket purchase” is tax-deductible.
