This is a reminder that there is a spreadsheet available to everyone who has the link to type in who they are planning on talking to about silent auction donations. You can then come back after you've received a response & fill out the rest of the line. I have noticed that the only people who have added information to it are members of the board, but we need everyone's help to make this a successful auction!
Go ahead and click the link and have a look. You may be surprised how easy it is to find donations. You may also be interested to see what we already have - tickets, strings, tuner, quilt, vacuum... take a look!
Also, here is the link to a letter we've successfully used to solicit donations from businesses. It has my name on it as a contact person. Please add yours and let people know you will be personally handling their donation. :) Thanks for that!
Please Please Please start using the spreadsheet... If you don't I will think it doesn't work! That will truly keep me up at night. I'm sure of it!
Remember, we are asking each family to come up with a donation for the auction. Home made or home baked are also allowed. Especially if you're famous for something! I can say that because I bring home made bread every year (maybe I should put that on the spreadsheet!)...
Thanks again for everything! The Youth Symphony and Chamber Orchestra are NOTHING without musicians and parents!
