It’s year number 3 and the Benefit Concert/Silent Auction has become part of LCR’s tradition! This year, the event will benefit WINTERFEST 2018. Let’s get together to make it even bigger and better than 2017!
The Salt and Power of Praise bands will perform beginning at 7:00pm on Saturday, April 14. There will be drinks, snacks, a silent auction, raffles, a decorated cake contest and lots more! Admission to the Concert and Silent Auction is free. Things are stacking up for an evening of fun and socializing while raising funds for Winterfest 2018.
Getting together with friends and brainstorming creative auction item ideas can be really fun! Please keep in mind that this event is a fundraiser. Reaching out to local businesses for donations is key and builds relationships with LCR neighbors. Examples of auction donations already received include – “Ride to School in a Real Fire Truck” and X-Box gift basket. Other examples might be:
- free auto tune-up(s) from a neighborhood business combined with a variety of car-care products for a great gift basket!
- a free financial planning consultation coupled with an assortment of file folders, calculator, etc.
- 6-months of lawn care – possibly a service you could provide yourself or with a few friends – or get together with a couple friends to contract with a local lawn care company!
- 1-year Netflix subscription with popcorn, beverages, snuggly blankets
- Personal services (boat rides, vacation homes, etc.)
- Teaching opportunities (knitting lessons, etc.)
- More gift basket ideas
- Book lovers
- Beer/wine connoisseurs
- Cooking enthusiasts
- Chocolate lovers
- Kids games/Coloring
- Dining out
There are endless possibilities! If you’re not comfortable putting a basket together, we’ll do it for you… just provide the items and the theme, we’ll take it from there! All items for auction must include a minimum bid or “reserve”. Some items may be selected for raffle rather than silent auction. This will allow everyone to participate, even if they feel they can’t bid the minimum on a Silent Auction item. To print a donation form, please click the image
Smiling faces are being sought for a variety of tasks during the event. Please check out the Silent Auction table in the lobby or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
