First, whoever gave me the Texas Roadhouse Gift Cards for the Silent Auction, THANK YOU, but I'm not sure who it was! Duh! Please tell me who you are so you get 2 entries into the $100 drawing!
We (Read: Julie and Doris) are getting nervous (seems like an annual thing) about ticket sales for the Gala (April 9, 6 pm, BC Senior Center, $15). With the deadline for the caterer looming, we need to sell about 120 more tickets before next Tuesday.Can you help? I have set up a Facebook event so it's easy for you to spread the word. If you don't have enough tickets, go ahead and collect money, turn it in to Josie on Saturday and pick up tickets then.If you have no idea what I'm talking about, ask your student for the envelope in their folder with tickets and instructions. Tickets are numbered. All unsold tickets must be returned before the event.Thanks!Here is the Facebook event link. I even spent $11 and "boosted" the post. Never have I done such a strange thing!
If you are negotiating with your employer (like Sydnee did with Papa Murphy's) or another business for a silent auction item, it's not too late! Go for it! Here is the letter that we have been using to convince people to donate.Frankly, I'm embarrassed to say, I don't think I've shared this letter with enough people, but it works. Here's Proof: Check out the updated list of silent auction items here. It's all in one post. I've been updating it.
Reminder that this Saturday's rehearsal is only 8 to 10 am. Please be early, and come ready to focus and work hard. :)
Oh, and thanks for the great Basket Response last Saturday. When you read through the list below, if I have your item in the wrong category, let me know. Also, two of the groups.... well, they need more STUFF, and it's not hard to get more than NOTHING, so bring something! :)
