We need your help! Your donations and your volunteer time are vital to the Gala's success.
There are about 70 volunteer spots open - Please consider volunteering your time either beforehand or during the event.
If you can volunteer, please click HERE to sign up through VolunteerSpot.
We are collecting donations of beer and wine for our Wine Wall and Beer and Wine Raffle games. If you have extra bottles of wine at home or can purchase wine or beer to donate, all will be used and appreciated. Please drop them off at the school or church offices.
We are also asking for item / service donations for our live and silent auctions. Do you have a cabin/condo package you would be willing to donate for a weekend, or sports or theater tickets, or another activity? Or perhaps you provide a service you could donate. If so, please contact our solicitations chair, Tara Gunderson, at email@example.com.
You can also donate an item or basket to our silent auction. In the past we have received hand crafted items, or baskets with a
theme of some sort, such as sports, pets, baby, crafts, or a movie
night. These are just a few ideas - be creative! We ask that any items be new.
Because we need to enter the items into this new mobile bidding software, we are asking your cooperation to have all donated items / baskets in to the school or church office by April 14th, one week before the Gala. Please provide the approximate value, and your contact information, with the item/basket in case we have questions.
If your item can not be turned in by the deadline, such as if it is perishable, please contact our silent auction chair, Emily Stocke, firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone: 763-531-2463. This will let us know about what you plan to donate, so the information can be entered into the software in time.
Any items / baskets not turned in by April 14th, which have not been previously committed, will not be accepted the night of the Gala. They will be set aside for the Festival or for next year’s Gala. Thank you for helping our volunteers as we work with this new software to make your bidding experience better.
