Help us recruit for the 13th by spreading the word and taking a moment to join our April 13th Facebook event. After you join, remember to visit our website and sign up with us.

EYES ON THE PRIZE(S)

We're starting to plan this year's 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!

The fun starts this May with our annual Legendary Bingo night, and we'd love to have something fabulous for the grand prize 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 events.

Please also let Skylar know to whom you reach out so we don't accidentally duplicate Special Events Committee efforts in contacting businesses.

WHOM DO YOU KNOW? CELEBRITY WANTED

We'd like to have a celebrity host as a bingo caller for our annual Legendary Bingo Night on May 15th. Please reply if you can personally reach out to any celebrities who would like to help your favorite good cause!
