The dreamBIG committee is hard at work securing live and silent auction items for the upcoming dreamBIG Gala on Friday, November 18th at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia.

While there are many ways to support this incredible organization (sponsorships and individual tickets are available here: https://one.bidpal.net/icandreambig2022) we have teamed up to help make our LIVE and SILENT auction program the absolute best and need YOUR help. As members of the committee - we have teamed up to host an exclusive networking event for those of our friends, family members, clients, and business we work with throughout the year who so generously provide us with an in-kind donation for our silent or live auction valued at $100 MINIMUM by October 1st.
We are currently seeking in-kind donations such as gift certificates, gift baskets, or any other item from your business or favorite hot spot valued at $100 MINIMUM - here’s a few things we’ve collected so far:
Membership to CrossFit Gym
Spa Gift Cards
Private Dinner with Local Chef
Escape Room Experience
SRT Driving Experience
Your donation will contribute to the success of ICAN’s free after-school programs which are growing through our expansion in Chandler and, this year, into Mesa. ICAN's programs include academic support, STEAM activities, sports & recreation and ICAN’s signature Positive Youth Development – teaching life skills and communication that foster self-confidence and resilience. All of this offered FREE to the community, due to fundraising activities such as dreamBIG and thanks to donors like you!
We look forward to celebrating all of the wonderful donations of community members like yourself at this fun gathering and will continue to post resources here so that you can learn more about the incredible organization we are supporting!

Ways to Get Involved in The Community
ASA Now - Volunteers Needed
At ASA now and Jacob’s Mission Community Center in Mesa we have created daily opportunities for our community to make a real impact in the lives of our most vulnerable population.
Within each one of you lies the potential to curve the statistics that foster children face. You can change the future of one of the 14,000 children that are currently in foster care.
The founders of ASA Now are three foster adopt mamas with a dream to change the grim statistics foster children face. Below are a few of those statistics.
Two out of three foster children end up dead, homeless or in jail within a year of aging out.
Girls in Foster Care Pregnant by 19 - 50%
Former Foster Kids in U.S. Prison - 74%
Incarcerated within 2 years of "Age Out" - 50%
Former Foster Youth on Death Row - 80%
Number of Foster Kids that graduate college - 1-3%
Number of Foster Kids that graduate high school - 33%
*45 minutes of your time once a week can change the trajectory of a child’s life.
