We’re only two months away now from JA of Lincoln’s biggest fundraiser of the year. The Junior Achievement Tailgate (this year’s dinner and auction event) is set for September 16th, and we’re getting excited! The venue is booked, the wine is chilling (we want to be really sure it’ll be cold), and the committee members are busy little bunnies. Somewhere, our auctioneers are alternately practicing talking ridiculously fast (doIhear500dollars500dollarswho’llgiveme500dollars500dollarsyousirthankyou500dollars…) and resting their delicate voices.
So now you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Self, what can I do to help?”
We’re so glad you asked!
As you know, a large percentage of the funds raised on that fabulous evening will come from our silent and live auctions– and the better the items up for sale, the more money we raise for Lincoln’s students! So that’s where we turn to you, our wonderful friends and supporters. We’re looking for auction items that will get our guests excited about bidding! From sports tickets to timeshares, art to wine, business services to gift certificates… if you’re willing to donate, we’re willing to be eternally grateful. We might even hug you.
See you at the Tailgate!
