I sincerely hope everyone is doing well, your families are healthy and safe, business continues to improve, and you are all as anxious as I am to meet in person again.
The Board has worked hard this year to plan events despite the challenges we’ve been facing. We had a successful Happy Hour, an informative Annual Meeting and we were able to award $20,000 in scholarships. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to see everyone for the Annual Scholarship Golf Outing, but we are hoping to see you all for the Holidays. While I know we would all like to be bowling at Foxwoods, we will be celebrating the Holidays virtually. Be sure to mark your calendars for December 9th. There will be a raffle, an ugly Holiday sweater contest (with prizes!), and more. Who doesn’t like an extra gift during the Holidays?
We need your help! We are asking companies to consider donating raffle prizes to make this a fun and successful event. Here are some ideas for items we’re looking for: wine baskets, apparel, gift cards, power tools, golf equipment, board games, etc. All we need from you right now is what prizes you will commit to donating. Following the event, we will ask you to send the prize to the lucky winner. The more prizes, the more winners, the more fun for everyone. One free raffle ticket will be issued for all early birds who register before November 30th. After that, additional tickets can be purchased. If you prefer, we can purchase the prize for your company and bill you the designated amount.
You will receive more details, including a registration form, for the Holiday Party, but at this time we are asking for commitments to raffle prizes. Please consider donating a prize of your choice. Thank you!
