2020 Virtual Sunset in the City

Virtual Event Host - Sherry Stripling

This year Anchor Center for Blind Children’s annual gala will be virtual!  I invite you to join me from the comfort of your home as we raise awareness and funds in support of my favorite non-profit.  In addition to the one-hour on-line gala, I will be hosting a pre-party via Zoom.

Anchors Away (literally away, not aweigh!) Pre-Party

hosted by Sherry & Tad Stripling

Saturday, Sept. 19, 5:30 pm MT
(adjust to your time zone as needed)

Register in advance for this pre-party Zoom gathering and make your requested $25* donation to Anchor Center:


by registering in advance, I’ll be able to pre-establish break-out group teams for our games and discussions.  Zoom Meeting ID: 845 7504 4288

*The Sunset in the City Gala is FREE, however, I am requesting Anchors Away Zoom participants donate a minimum of $25 either in advance or during the auction/gala.   Donation information below.

What to expect – I’ll provide a virtual introduction to Anchor Center for those who haven’t had a chance to visit, then we’ll have some Anchor trivia – a little friendly competition in teams and get to know others at the party through some breakout group discussions.  Got a favorite Anchor story – brush it off to share.  Got a favorite Anchor picture – please send it to me in advance at sherrys718@gmail.com.   As time permits, we’ll preview some of our favorite auction items and find out who is bidding on what.

Attire – wear your favorite nautical themed attire – hats encouraged – let’s see those anchors and waves!   Got a sailor hat?
