I got the info sheet for our Jewel Shop and Share fundraiser in the mail yesterday. We have three sets of dates planned to raise money. The first set of days is April 6-8, 2009. PGC will get 5% of all sales made those days by individuals who hand in and sign our identification slip with their purchase.
Who would like to pass out slips! Obviously I would wait until closer to the sale days to hand out the slips to friends and family, but I figured I could mail all of you a copy of the slip now and you could make as many copies as you want. Does everyone have access to a xerox machine? For those of you who don't I ordered 300 already printed slips but they will not be available until 3/16/3009. What do you think would be the best way to distribute slips to the members of this group?
Also, I got a sample press release format for anyone who would like to advertise this fundraiser in their schools, churches, local newspapers, etc. Let me know if you want that.
AND, the check will be mailed to me, but it will be made out to PGC. I will then send it to PGC with a request for certain monies to be returned to our splinter group. Does that sound ok?
I have never chaired a fundraiser before so any suggestions on how to move forward are welcome!
