SAVE THE DATE: Gala 2017- November 3rd!
On November 3, 2017, Trinity Episcopal Church will be hosting our annual fundraiser at Exmoor Country Club. We invite your support of our event this year.
Proceeds from the event (which includes silent and live auctions, raffle, wine roulette, dinner and DJ) allow us to maintain a good home for organizations like Tri-Con Child Care Center. This year we celebrate the 45th anniversary of our partnership with Tri-Con, who provides top quality early childhood care and education for lower income families in our community. Trinity is also pleased to support other community organizations and programs, including English as a Second Language classes, Lake County United, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Highland Park Strings.
We know you are valuable constituents in the neighborhood and we invite you to participate in our fundraiser auction by donating a gift certificate from your restaurant. Not only will you be supporting important programs in our community, but this event will also provide recognition and visibility of your restaurant. Additionally, we will list you in our program bulletin as an event sponsor.
Thank you in advance for considering our invitation to support this wonderful event; a member of our planning committee will be following up with you soon. If you would prefer to send your donation directly to us, please send it to the attention of McCreary Powers.
Wondering how you can contribute to the Gala?
There are many different opportunities to help make this a successful event!
Here are some ideas:
1. Invite some friends to the Gala on November 3rd! Enjoy a wonderful evening at Exmoor, silent/live auction, DJ and fun times!!
2. Donate a bottle of wine for the Wine Roulette. We ask that the bottles are approximately $25.
3. Solicit a restaurant for a gift certificate. When we are close to the event, there will be a list in Choir Forming Room. Don’t see one that you go to? Just add it to the list!
(These are paired with a bottle of wine for the Roulette.)
4. Solicit a business and ask for a donation- either a gift certificate or an item.
5. Donate items to make a basket. We will wrap and put it together! See the sign up in Choir Forming Room with a list of ideas!
6. Do you have a special talent? Work somewhere that could make a donation?
7. You can also buy an item or give a cash donation.
** If you are going to solicit, then please write the restaurant or business on the board in Choir Forming Room, so we are not asking them more than once.
** Please email McCreary at firstname.lastname@example.org when you get a donation, so that I can keep our records up to date.
Proceeds support Trinity Church, Highland Park, home of Tri-Con, a low income day care, our various hunger and reading outreach programs, rehearsal site for Highland Park Strings, and site for English as a Second Language lessons, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Lake County United.
