As in years past, we are asking each table to designate a leader to gather donations for a group raffle basket. The ideas are endless…gardening, cooking, sports, books, children, crafts, wine, movies, religious, kids, etc. If you are coming alone or in a small group, please consider donating a bottle of wine per person or a gift card. If you have a small business or special talent to share, please consider donating an item or gift certificate as well. All donations are welcome!
We will be collecting all donations prior to the event. For questions about raffle baskets or delivery instructions, contact Katie Sauerbrey at (317) 956-9662 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like all baskets turned in by Monday, February 25. The baskets have always been one of the favorite traditions of the evening. We can’t wait to see this year’s contributions!
