Bring what you have and completed procurement forms to the Mandatory!! VBS Prep meeting Sunday April 28th we meet from 3:00-8:00
First off I wanted to say that you guys are all doing an amazing job getting all your tasks completed! I wanted to reach out just one more time and hopefully help clear up any questions you might have about auction items.
For this silent and live auction to come off as a huge success we need to have great items for folks to bid on… that’s where you come in. You guys are to provide those items, and you can get them from wherever you can. Either from local business, from your parents or family, or even from yourself. The more fun and valuable, the better!
Be sure you fill out the Auction Forms for all the items that you are bringing! This way we know the approximate value, and who to get the service from… maybe its you.
Example: if you are providing child care, fill out the Auction Procurement Form, you are the donor, name the service you are providing, describe what you will be offering (dinner, games, fun, hair braiding whatever), how many hours, the specifics. Fill you the Procurement Forms best you can for all items/baskets or groups of items
