Dear Weems Creek Nursery School Community,

On Saturday, June 1st, Weems Creek Nursery School will hold a summer soiree and fundraiser where parents, teachers, and community members are invited to come together to celebrate our school and raise funds for important programs.

We are preparing now in order to make the fundraiser a success, and our fundraiser committee is asking for your help. We invite all Weems families to play a role by:

  • Procuring or donating auction items (small or large, it ALL makes a difference)

  • Sponsoring the event

  • Volunteering before, during, or after the event.

  • Attending the big event!

  • We hope that you participate in any way that you are able.

This guide is meant to provide helpful information and tools to support the event.

Sincerely,

Jaime John & Erika Kopicki
Event Co-Chairs, Weems Creek Nursery School Fundraiser 2019

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or if you would like to volunteer.

DONATIONS: WE NEED YOUR HELP!

This fundraiser depends on donated items that we can then auction off. Think - what would you like to purchase at the auction? Whatever that is, please help us procure! Here is a list of ideas!

Below are several ideas for how you can help us create an amazing catalogue of items for 2019!

  • Think broadly—what can your friends, family, and acquaintances donate?

  • When you patronize a business, especially one you use regularly, ask them to donate.

  • Should you choose to buy a gift card, ask the vendor to match your purchase! Give them a copy of our donor letter to provide verification.

  • Remember it’s all for the school, wherever you land is great!

    Donations can come to the auction committee through two channels:

1. Paper donor forms - a copy is included here. Keep these forms handy to pass out or email to potential donors. Donors can then fill the form out and give it back to you, mail it in to the address provided,

OR...

2. They can donate online by clicking the image below.

WHAT ARE SPONSORSHIPS?

Event sponsorships give a business or individual the opportunity to advertise in the Weems community. By becoming an event sponsor, businesses receive advertising space. Depending on the package selected, businesses may have their logo featured on our website, social media pages, and/or in our monthly newsletter along with featured signage the night of the auction event. By becoming an event sponsor, you are not only making a valuable contribution to our school and supporting our students, but you are gaining great exposure for your business. With expectations for nearly 125 attendees, you are sure to reach a wide audience.

A sponsorship letter on the Weems Creek Nursery School letterhead is included here.

Sponsorship packages can be purchased here:
