We are gearing up for our first auction fundraiser and we could use your help! Details about the auction are below and more details will be available on the website soon.
We are currently seeking the following donations for the auction:
*getaway packages (vacations, flights, stays at b&bs and hotels, etc.)
*gift certificates for restaurants, spas, theaters, sporting events, yoga classes, musical venues, ski passes, rafting trips, cooking classes, pet grooming and boarding, etc.)
If you would like to help secure donations, please email me. There is a meeting in Seattle on Thursday, July 16th at 6:00pm for all auction volunteers, so let me know if you’d like to join us and I will send you the details.
The event is already gearing up to be a successful evening. The chimps will be celebrated in style! With enough people asking for donations we’ll be able to raise a bunch of money for them.
We’ll also need lots of volunteers to work the auction itself. Jobs that night will include registration, food and beverage serving, live auction help (runners, recorders, item handlers), raffle ticket sellers, checking-out, cleaning up. If you’d like to work the auction, let me know that too.
If you live at a distance, you can still secure items for the auction, or you can help sponsor the auction itself to cut down on the costs to the sanctuary for putting on this swanky and fun event. Perhaps the Chimp Chatterers / blog followers would like to sponsor the printing and framing of a couple of Cle Elum Seven photos to be auctioned off? What do you think?
