The MV Community Services’ annual Possible Dreams fundraiser is a highly anticipated event on Martha’s Vineyard that plays a crucial role in supporting the community. This auction event offers participants the opportunity to bid on unique experiences and items, with proceeds directly benefiting the wide range of services provided by MVCS. These services include mental health and substance use programs, disability services, early childhood programs, and elder services, among others. Over the years, Possible Dreams has become a vital source of funding that enables MVCS to continue and expand its support for island residents, enhancing the quality of life for the entire community. The event not only raises funds but also awareness of the essential roles MVCS plays in supporting individuals and families across the island.

Possible Dreams 2024 is scheduled for July 21, 2024.

In 2023, alongside the auctioning of unique experiences, MVCS introduced the Art Buchwald Award for Outstanding Community Service in honor of the event’s longtime host, Art Buchwald. The inaugural recipient of this prestigious award was Wiet Bacheller, a former educator and dedicated advocate for children and families. Bacheller’s deep involvement with MVCS spans over four decades, serving on the Board of Directors, initiating the MV license plate program, and volunteering on the Possible Dreams committee. Additionally, she continues to contribute her wisdom and support to various MVCS initiatives. The award was presented at the 45th Annual Possible Dreams event, hosted by Seth Meyers, and donations to MVCS in honor of Wiet Bacheller’s achievements are greatly appreciated.
