Check out this new web site to stay up-to-date on the progress of Jackson's first benefit event!!
If you have anything for the auction, please let me know ASAP! We want to make the bid sheets as we get the items and also list them on the web site.
My mom and I will be up in the area in a couple weekends and are planning to have a meeting with anyone that is interested in helping out with the benefit. If you want to attend, please email me and I will get you the details! We are having a lunch meeting at Seven Lakes on Saturday, January 20, at noon.
We are compiling a list of businesses in the area that we will approach regarding donations. If you have already talked to a business PLEASE let us know, so we do not go to them again!
Besides donations for the auction and raffles, we will also be requesting items to help with the benefit, food, snacks, drinks, plates, bowls, utensils, etc. If you know of anyplace we can get items like that donated from or at least very cheap, let us know that also. Remember, the less we spend, the more that Jackson gets!
I was also thinking about calling a hotel in the area to see if they would hold some rooms at a cheaper rate for any out-of-town guests that would like to attend the benefit. If I decide to, I will post the information!
Thanks in advance, I know we will have a lot of help with this and it will be great!!
