Subject: 'Those 70's Shows' Groovy Gala and Auction


"Those 70's Shows" Groovy Gala and Auction 
is exactly 2 months away!

Get ready for fun and fundraising on March 7th! 

Tickets will go on sale online next week. We have a lot of information 
that will be coming your way in the next few weeks. 

Please read all the information that is sent as 
there have been a lot of changes from past years.


Below are the ways that you can help us have the most successful auction ever.

Each family is being asked to solicit or donate at least one item for the live or silent auction. 

All donations help us raise more money and fund the annual budget, so we really need everyone’s help with this. If you don't want to solicit an item from a business, you can donate a gift card or purchase an item for donation - please see some of the ideas below! 


Donations (see form attached)
  • Event Tickets – Have season tickets for a local sports team, theater or cultural event? Donate a pair!
  • Vacation Home – If your family has a summer home, lake house, time share, etc., you can donate some time there. You choose the dates and include all the details of what your getaway has to offer.
  • Gift Cards – Purchased through our gift card program from the school office, of course! Restaurant, hotel and retail gift cards are always useful, and we can even package them with other donations to get more bang.
  • Themed Gift Baskets – Share whatever you’re into with the rest of us! Craft beer? Wine and cheese? Movie or game night? The possibilities are endless.
  • Services – Use your talents! Give your time and expertise - website design, logo design, tutoring, college/high school decision or application counseling, a photography package, babysitting and more.
  • Miles/Points – If you’re a frequent traveler, you can donate miles or points for flights or hotels. These are often top items for bidding!

We also invite you to be creative!

We are open to any ideas/talents/donations you can come up with. 
Please reach out to the Donations Chairs, karen@nevotti.com or erinntelford@gmail.com, with questions or ideas.


Sponsorship (see form attached)

We are committed to making this year’s event an even bigger success and need your help. Last year, we secured event sponsors for the first time and this year we are hoping to grow our success. Those 70’s Shows is a great opportunity for companies to receive exposure, build new and deeper community networks and help a worthy cause. There are many ways that you can aid our efforts in securing event sponsors. Pilgrim parents who own a business are urged to consider the following opportunities; as are those whose employers might be interested. If you frequent a local business, please consider working with us to solicit a sponsorship. Business owners are more likely to support charitable efforts when regular customers seek their support. Finally, the Host level is an excellent opportunity for Pilgrim families to sponsor the event and help make Those 70’s Shows a success.

Tickets

Buy tickets early and invite friends- attending the event is really the priceless contribution to Pilgrim. It's a fun, social evening where new friendships are formed and fun abounds. Feel free to bring non-Pilgrim friends, family or neighbors to enjoy the evening. Tickets will be a lower price ($75) until 2/27, when they will go up to $85, so take advantage of the savings and help us get an accurate count for the event. Don't forget to bring cash to the event---we have some fun, new ideas for this year, so be on the lookout for our newsletters, starting later in the month!
