WE NEED YOU! (and your donations)

Recommended Posts

As most of you know, our auction and/or raffle to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation is ONE of the highlights of the Convention. We've managed to raise more money with each successive year and we don't plan on breaking this wonderful streak in 2009!!

(Did someone say streak? :streaker: )

Ahem.

We are compiling items for "gift baskets" which will be raffled off at the convention. (Anyone who witnessed last year's raffle will tell you this part of the convention is a blast!) Anything that can be wrapped and ribboned will be appreciated ... movie gift certificates, cd's, dvd's, chocolate, etc. ... The items do NOT have to be "Gerry-related."

Got a boss that may be willing to donate funds for us to purchase the makings of a basket? GREAT! GALS Charitable Foundation is a 501©(3) tax-exempt organization. We can get him/her a receipt allowing them to write-off the tax deduction!! (We're glad to help get them a write-off in these tough economic times! :funnyface: )

Please send your generous donations to:

Susan Payette

1600 Dove Street #250

Newport Beach, CA 92660

Of course, if you've got any questions, post 'em here!

Actually, if you've got any fun auction memories/pictures to share, post those, too! (Sorry, I'm anxious for June to get here and I need something to help me release all the pent up energy! It would be fun to talk about this stuff. LOL)

Thanks y'all!

oooh,

I think I'll be able to put together a basket from my little cottage industry (d/b/a "Lavender Hill") --- KB and Hobbes have already pinged me about a raffle contribution including honey from Queens Isabel and Patricia (next year Queen Katherine will also be productive, one hopes), and related items like beeswax soap, hand cream, yada yada, so I'm psyched and hoping I can deliver.

What would be the deadline for basket delivery? Would I send it to Susan?

For most people it is easiest to send the donation to me, since I drive to Las Vegas (with a cram-packed full SUV). That way you don't have to figure out how to get it on a plane to bring it with you.

For those who aren't inclined to put together an entire basket of goodies please feel free to send individual items and together with my very talented crew of basket-assemblers/decorators it will be included with other items to make a beautiful presentation for the raffle. Below are some pictures of items from the last convention - this was during the "staging" process as we were sorting through them and deciding which items were going in the raffle for each night.

I'm not going to be able to make it this year, but I'll put something together and get it to Susan as soon as possible. I really enjoyed making a basket last year. Probably won't be able to do a basket, but I can put together some Gerry stuff.

:hugs:

Hey Ladies,

I am gathering items (misc) to send to Susan.

Also, my sister has started a new hobbie of beading bracelets and I have asked her

to make one with the theme of Dear Frankie and "We are connected" I can't wait to

see what she comes up with. I gave her the graphic we have posted here.

I am on the hunt for more items....

Like Sally previously mentioned; she and I are going to be making a basket.

I just got the first two items for it, and O.G. is pleased!

Sherrell!!! I'm tickled six shades of pink at you being there! :wuv:

Although I won't be at the convention...I will be donating some Gerry magnets I make. A few of the GALS here have gotten magnets from me and they loved them. As soon as my life calms down...I hope to get going and make them.

I have a cookie business with my sister and I would love to donate some cookies! Gerry inspired of course. :pointy: Just let me know how many and when they are needed. I live in Las Vegas and can bring them to where ever you need them.

We appreciate your generosity, Princess! However, we've already got a "cookie gal" that's donated her services for this convention. (She did them last year, too). I don't know if the planners will be interested in more, but I'll check to make sure!

I'm putting together a gift basket, more like a trunk, of Gerry goodies.

I will send them to Susan as soon as I get it all together.

Huge thank yous to everyone who is sending goodies for our raffles and auctions. Yes, the 1600 Dove Street address is still the correct one to use for sending them.
