Contribution Wish Lists
Want to contribute but aren't sure what we need? Check out the items below! Please keep in mind that as the Gala approaches, we may choose to combine contributions to maximize their impact.
Are you better at writing checks than you are at shopping? We'd be happy to accept contributions
towards the purchase of wish list items! Please send contributions to Robin Snider in an envelope clearly marked Gala Wish List.
We're looking for that unique item or experience you cannot get anywhere else. Do you have a vacation home? How about a unique talent you could share? Are you an artist? Contribute a piece of your work! Below you'll find some other ideas. We would also love to have items to create theme baskets. No need to actually assemble the basket – you supply the items and we will work our magic!
We are always looking for contributions of unique experiences, for example…
- Visits to political offices or TV stations.
- Behind the scenes tours of interesting work places such as farms, vets, laboratories, fire stations, etc.
- Special Dining experiences at local restaurants or in a private home
- Parties – We are in particular need of a family or men's buy-in party this year
Individual Wish List Items
Adult or Children's Party
Plan and host a buy-in party for the Gala! The party will be sold as a per person, couple or family price depending on what type of party you choose. We call this a "buy-in" party because guests buy tickets into the party.
For adults or children:
Q. If I host a party, do I have to pay for it?
Q. Is a party/event tax‐deductible?
Q. Am I paid anything to host the party?
Q. Do the people coming to the party need to bring anything?
Q. How many people are invited and how much do I charge for my party?
Q. What if I want to throw a party but don't have the space?
Q. When do I have the party?
Q. What kind of parties can I host?
