Remember when I told you I got a job at my children’s school as their Development Director? Yes? And I told you about Sprint, the other lady that shares the job with me. Well, right now we’re in the home stretch of our largest fund raiser of the year. It’s a silent and live auction with a dinner. So far I think we’re doing well selling tickets and getting corporate support and the auction items are starting to be donated.
Last year I asked all of you what you thought were great auction ideas. So, once again I’m counting on all of you to share your fabulous ideas with me.
As for my personal donations I will be giving a pork package and designing a Christmas tree with homemade ornaments from the students in the school’s colors (blue and gold) I think it will be really neat when I get it done. I might do the wine tastings that I did last year, but I haven’t decided if I have time for it yet or not.
Okay, spill your brilliance on me. What do want when you go to a fund raising auction? What would you buy? What would you donate? What is the big seller at your school/charity?
ATTENTION FUND RAISERS read the great ideas in the comments!!!
Keep ’em coming! I’ll be emailing a few of you to follow up on specifics of your ideas. Thanks for the great inspiration!!!
