February Fundraiser Announcement!!!
Alright folks, I am SO EXCITED about our February Fundraiser!!! It will actually be a "two fundraisers in one" deal, and there will be lots more details to follow, but I wanted to start getting the word out now. We've been talking about it for awhile, but it is finally time to do our Raffle! We will be hosting our Raffle online so you can buy tickets straight from our Paypal button on our blog. Here's how it will work: you can buy as MANY tickets as you want and enter them into as many PRIZES as you want!!! You can disperse your tickets over a number of prizes you have your eye on, or put all your tickets in one basket for a better chance at winning the prize you REALLY want!
We will be announcing the winners at our Raffle Night on Wednesday, February 29th at Genghis Grill at Arrowhead (a DELICIOUS build-your-own stir fry restaurant)! More details will follow on that, but basically we have worked together with one of our favorite restaurants to host a fundraiser benefitting our adoption!!! They will be giving us 20% of all profits that day (from anyone who brings in our flier)!!! We are so excited about this, and thought it would be the perfect time to announce our Raffle winners! My kids will be pulling the winning tickets that evening at the restaurant, and if you are there you can claim your prize, if not we will contact you later and get it to you!
So here's what we need...Raffle Prizes!!! We have a few prizes donated so far, but if you have something you would like to donate to our Raffle to make it a huge success, we would appreciate it so much! Ideas for great donations include gift cards, themed gift baskets, a donation of your trade or business (example: photography session or massage), handmade items, or baked goods! The sky is the limit, but we would be so excited to get some great prizes donated to make this Raffle a success. If you have something you would like to donate, contact me right away! We would like to post the list of prizes by next week so we can start selling our tickets!
Tickets will be $5 a piece, and everyone who comes to Genghis Grill on the 29th will get a free random entry into the Raffle!!! You can purchase your tickets by email, text, or in person. We will put your name on your tickets and enter them into the prize or prizes of your choice! We will be posting the Genghis Grill flier very soon, and ask that you print it, pass it out, email it to all your contacts, and share it on your facebook page!
We are getting VERY close to our little one! The remainder of our adoption fees will be due when the baby is placed with us, and that can be at any time after we are entered into the Match Book in March. We have been blessed greatly with the funds we've raised so far, but still have a long way to go! Thank you so much for helping us make this fundraiser a huge success!
If you have an item or service you would like to donate to our Raffle, please contact me immediately! We will be listing the prizes on the blog next week and tickets will be for sale then!
Stay tuned for more details, and mark your calendars to have a delicious stir-fry lunch or dinner on Wednesday, February 29th and help us bring Baby Harrison home!!!
