Our Annual Service Auction the third and largest in our Big 3 Fundraisers series, and this year we're going far! Our goal for this year is $20,000, and to get there we're going "Around The World!" We hope you can come and enjoy a wonderful, lively evening which includes dinner and childcare as well!!
As always, reservations for hosting tables will go quickly, so hurry with your request. Hosting a table is easy - just notify firstname.lastname@example.org that you want to be a table host, and we'll reserve your table. If you were to travel around the world, what would that look like? What ideas come to mind? Venice? Magellan? The Mercury space capsule? Create your own take on what "Around the World" means to you, then deck your table out accordingly since you, the host, can choose how to decorate your table. Next, invite seven other guests to share in your table, and come dressed for it as well. A Jules Verne-themed table is rich with characters. If decorating or dressing up is not your thing, that's okay too. Just invite your friends to your table and enjoy the evening.
There's no need to wait for an invitation to come. We need people to "travel" with us, and who better than you? When traveling abroad, you never know whom you'll meet. Jump in with both feet.
Just fill out the Attendance Reservation Form and we'll be sure that everyone has a seat at a table.
Auctions need goods and services to auction off in order to be considered, you know, an auction. In years past, we've offered up orthodontics, music lessons, electronics, unique meals and parties, musical instruments, art work, handyman services, creatively decorated and filled gift baskets and a lot more! What can we acquire from abroad?
You can even solicit local businesses that you frequent for donations. You can download and use this solicitation letter (Letter) to present to the business manager to show that you're legitimate.
If you've got goods or services to donate or just an interest in either donating or in soliciting for donations, just fill out the Service Auction Donation Form. If you're considering donating an event, or if you just want to see what submitted events are happening when, take a look at the Calendar of Events.
Save the date! Mark Saturday, November 21st in red on your calendars!!
