EYES ON THE PRIZES
We've started planning this year's fundraising events, and we need your help gathering prizes!
Our events are more fun and raise more money if we have
great prizes to award, raffle, and/or auction. Big prizes. Little prizes. Serious prizes. Silly prizes. We need them all! Check out our list of prizes from
last year's Silent Auction for ideas.
If you have any prizes, or you know where to get them, let us
know! We'd love to have something fabulous for the Silent Auction or for our grand prize Bingo winner -- anything unique or with an
autograph is always welcome!
To help you get started, here is a
generic donation letter to give to a manager, supervisor, or friend who may be able to donate a gift, product, or service,
tips on how to best approach a business or person to donate to our events, and a
donation form for the donor to complete.
In the past we have had gift certificates, products, services, and tickets to fun events. If you work at or have a connection with a restaurant, retail store, or for a company with products or services to offer,
please help us by asking for a donation to our
