EPiC's 1st Annual Silent Auction & Fundraiser
Friday from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Empowered Parents in Community (EPiC) is hosting a silent auction to benefit its support of Black children from Birth to 12th grade and their families in pursuit of high-quality education and equitable resources. Bidding for the auction will begin virtually on October 28, 2022, and end on November 4 during a cocktail hour gathering with food and music at Melanated Wine in Durham, NC. A special raffle will also take place for fun prizes.
Empowered Parents in Community (EPiC) is a 501c3 nonprofit that aims to cultivate parent leadership and improve family engagement to better support their students’ educational needs. We do this by intentionally engaging Black parents and empowering them through collective organization to advocate for accountability at all levels to close the educational opportunity gap. We create safe spaces for them to address mental health challenges. Moreover, we collaborate with other community organizations to provide resources and tools that help parents and educators create better schools. We came to life in one school and in one short year grew to have parent leaders in 1/3 of Durham Public Schools.
As we expand outside of Durham to other parts of North Carolina, we need the fuel to reach more students and their families. This fundraiser will be a key force in helping this work expand.
