Kalen and I went & signed the contract for the walk site today, and I happened to mention that I assumed raffles were unacceptable (gambling, etc.), and she said no! Since we've been approved for a fundraising event, things like raffles, silent auctions, etc. are perfectly legit. Yay!
So, the lesson here is, don't assume! (Like I did.) Make sure you ask if you don't know for sure already.
Now I actually have something to do with these neat things people are donating... So, what kind of things are folks getting in donations? It might be a good idea to share here; maybe one of us has thought of someone to approach that the others haven't.
So far, we've had pledged:
Gift Certificate to the Container Store
Two gift certificates to a family photographer
Ticket/memorabilia package from our minor league hockey team (Go Gladiators!)
We're also hoping for gift baskets from a popular local whole grain bakery & perhaps a baby store. Oh, and the Braves, if I ever re-connect with them!
