Hi All,
 
Our pre party meeting went well today and I think we have everything planned!
 
We are asking for donations for both the raffle and silent auction.
 
We have decided to turn auction items into centerpieces (one per table), thus encouraging everyone to move around the tables for bidding and catching up with everything at the party! We would love to get at LEAST ten auction items/baskets to fill the tables, but would love to get as many as possible. That's where you guys come in! Since they serve as centerpieces, make the goodies festive and pretty (i.e. celophane wrapping, baskets, ribbons). To keep track of how many tables we can fill, if you could email president@psmini.com or shoot me a PM with your gift plan, that would be great!
 
Also, include in your email your suggestion for a starting bid price, since you know how much the gift is worth.
 
Raffle donations need not be wrapped! Only auction items.
 
Thanks so much to Linda for planning everything. It's great how quick people in this club are to help out.
 
Thanks and if anyone from the plannin commitee has anything to add, feel free to jump in!

Hi Shasti,
 
   Sign us up.   Donna said that she will put together another amazing wine basket for the auction! 
 
Les and Donna, not in Minirva.

Using auction items as centerpieces is a great idea to generate interest! Thumbs Up

I do need some clarification though: "Raffle donations need not be wrapped. Only auction items." 
 
I understand about using cellophane for basket items, but if auction items are wrapped, how will people see what they're bidding on?  I'm confused. Wacko

By wrapped I mean "lightly decorated" like clear celophane with some small print, or just some festive holly. Anything to make it stand out as a centerpiece but so people can still see what it is :)

I can contribute a gingerbread house for either auction or raffle - you pick.

Actually it looks like I will have at least two gingerbread houses to offer, and possibly a third.  I made one, my cousin from Cali made one that she didn't want to take on the plane, and my sister is thinking about offering me hers.

Oh cool, how great! Maybe we could use one for the raffle and one for the silent auction.

If you don't have anything to wrap stuff in, we will gladly take care of that for you during setup, Linda mentioned bringing celophane and ribbon.
