Last year I posted about a school fundraiser, so I thought I would do so again. If the posting rules have changed since then, I apologize (just let me know).
Every year, my daughters elementary school hold a Renaissance Fair fundraiser. This is their primary fundraiser for the school. As part of the fundraiser, the school holds a raffle for a variety of prizes (ten in total), and the children are expected to sell tickets (without going door to door). In fact the "instructions" specifically say "please do not let the children sell the tickets".
In the past, they have had prizes for the top ten male and female ticket seller (who were awarded a trophy, crown, a prize, and the title like "Princess of the Fair"). Last year, with your help, my daughter was the 4th highest female ticket seller, and was the "Duchess of the Fair". This is a picture of her hold her trophy (the pink cheeks is from a face painting, not makeup) - I can't get the image to post, so here is the link.
This year, presumably due to budget cuts, they are only giving four prizes total this year (presumably they don't want to spend as much money of prizes for the students). As far as I know, they aren't doing any "titles", and who knows if they will be giving away trophies again. However, my daughter still would like to be one of the top sellers.
If you are interested in purchasing a ticket, please let me know. The tickets are $1 each. The deadline for selling them is Monday, April 18 (much less notice this year). Money can be sent to me via paypal (send it as a gift to avoid fees), and I will hold your ticket for you in case you win. The prizes include
- 21 inch iMac
46" falt screen TV
a BBQ pit
Two person Swing
A gift certificate for $300 from a local eatery
$100 Simon gift card
$50 gas card
Depending if someone wins something like that local eatery gift card or the barbecue pit, we can work out how to get them the prize. If you have any questions, please let me know. If you want to buy a ticket(s), just PM me with your information. Money can be sent via paypal to cjvitek @ yahoo dot com. If you prefer to send a check or something, let me know and I can send you my address.
Thanks for your support, and the Duchess of the Fair from last year thanks you as well!
BTW, just to give you an idea of the numbers, last year she sold a little more than 275 tickets, and was the 4th highest female seller.
