Collecting Auction Items:
-This involves collecting auction items from our participants (at the meetings) and keeping them at your home until the day of Taste of Spring AND maintaining a spreadsheet of each item and who donated it. We will provide you the spreadsheet. 2-3 people can work on this together.
During the Taste of Spring Fundraiser:
We will need parents to help with the following:
-Dessert Coordinator: coordinate with spreadsheet the desserts that will be brought to the event and be at the event to coordinate them being delivered.
-Runners: At the end of the evening we will need someone to bring auction items to the check out table to give to the winners.
Please note that if you help at Taste of Spring you will have plenty of time to enjoy the event. Most of the help is needed at the beginning and end of the evening.
Your student's fundraising account makes money depending on the sale price of the auction items minus our expenses for this event.
Sponsorships check amounts and Gift Cards amounts go directly into their fundraising account.
Beer Ladder, Wall o' Wine and Ticket sales DO NOT get credited toward participant’s accounts.
