Open House Fundraiser a success
We had the first of our big fundraisers this past weekend. There were 35 people who dropped in throughout the afternoon. 33 people made for a very busy afternoon with lots of conversations going on about what we are taking on in Mexico.
We did a balloon draw for a "Romantic Evening Extravaganza" basket. It included a $100 gift certificate to La Dolce Vita Ristorante, 2 bottles of wine from Airdrie Liquor, wine glasses and Chocolate Truffel tea from Oolong tea house. Balloons were sold at $20/balloon. The balloon holding the winning ticket was purchased by Blair Hoffmann! Congratulations to Blair and his wife! We also had a door prize draw for a signed copy of the book "Prairie Dreams" by Courtney Milne. Congratulations to Michele Guinan!
6 weeks to go for our fundraising efforts. I'll be focusing my attention for the next couple weeks on collecting Silent Auction donations.
The on-line Silent Auction will start August 1, 2010. We already have some amazing donations including a flight for 2 to San Francisco, a flight for 2 to Las Vegas, a deluxe toilet (including installation), a signed hand drawn picture of Eric Lindros, Restaurant and spa packages. I will post more as soon as the On-line Silent Auction site is ready to be viewed.
