Advertisment Opportunity

My children’s school has a Fall Festival every year to raise money for the school. I am in charge of collecting donations for this year’s Fall Festival. We are looking for donations of prizes to be awarded at bingo. This was the most popular game last year among adults and children. Some of the prizes from last year included gift certificates from retail shops and restaurants, salon gift set, jewelry, tools and luggage. This year we hope to make it an even bigger event. All prizes were put into gift bags with the business card attached to the front from the business that donated the item. Also all businesses were listed on several posters that surrounded the stage of our basket auction. Also businesses will be recognized throughout the festival. This festival draws family and friends of the students as well as members of the local communities. The date of this years festival is October 17th.

In addition to the bingo game we also will have a basket auction. These baskets all have a different theme and you may wish to donate for that. Some themes for this year include:
Hot Wheels
Girls Sleepover
I love to Read
UGA (University of Ga)
Game Night
High School Musical
Hannah Montana
And more to come.

Anyone donating will receive a letter from the school with their letterhead that can be used for tax purposes. (Please check with your accountant to make sure this is appropriate for your state.)

Thanks, if you have any questions please feel free to convo me.
