Many plans are currently under way for the 2012 GALS Fan/Charitable Convention


As most of you know, our auction and/or raffle to raise funds for
The Shade Tree Shelter and Angels of East Africa
is ONE of the highlights of the Convention.



We are compiling items for "gift baskets" and "stand alone" items which will be raffled and auctioned 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, Gift cards 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 (Sporran)
P.O. Box 17915
Irvine, CA 92623-7915


Or

Cheryl Simmons (Paisleyscot)
3890 SE Union Street

Elissa and I already started gathering stuff for the auction. Not sure if we are doing the Over 18 Gutter Gal basket again - running out of ideas for content that won't give Dayna a heart attack!

I Would love to Donate cosmetics from my Cosmetic line. Can We donate Services?!

Cosmetics would be great!

As for services, we have people coming from all over the us and even abroad. Services need to be something that could be used anywhere :pointy:

Thanks so much!

Hi Dana and :welcome:

I think we could put something together. From one graphic designer to another... You could right up a gift certificate for your services, include on certificate what the services are for and how much you're willing to provide.

Thanks Dana and welcome aboard!

Hi Guys

I wont have the timescale to do a new Gerry cross stitch for this years convention as I had planned, however I will be sending one of my own from my personal collection, hope you like him. I have checked on the Gals that visit my artwork thread and they seemed to like him and I will sign him if he's acceptable. he is pretty big.

If he is suitable, I will send him off to Susan ASAP if this is ok.

Hugs

June

June: I am sure this is more than OK for the Convention! This Gerry is gorgeous! Bet he will raise some $$$ for charity! You are such a generous GAL for sharing your art. :drink:

Susan: I will be sending some items soon. Not sure what yet but I am getting things together now.

I'm also planning a few more goodies for the basket.... :tantrum: now, if only the DVD would come out before the convention!!!

This is so exciting!!!
