Spaghetti Dinner/Silent Auction Fundraising Event!

Several weeks ago, a local personal Chef, Sebastian Mazzotta offered to cook a spaghetti dinner for us as a fundraiser. Our biggest challenge was finding a location to host the event...but now, we have all the details and ready to announce that our spaghetti dinner will be held Monday, December 5th at Our Savior Lutheran Church. The church is just off Airport-Pulling Road, behind Sam's Club. The cost of the dinner is $10 for adults and $5 for kids (ages 10 and under). The dinner will include spaghetti with marinara or meat sauce (your choice), garlic bread, salad, dessert, and drink! Dinner will be served 5-7pm and take-out will be available. If you wish to buy tickets to the dinner, please see me or David. We are selling tickets prior to the dinner so that Chef Sebastian knows exactly how much food to prepare! :)

In addition to the spaghetti dinner, we will also host a silent auction. We are in the process now of collecting items/gift certificates for the auction. If you have your own business, we would greatly appreciate it if you would consider donating something from your business for the silent auction. It can be a single item, a gift basket, or a gift certificate - whatever you are able to do. If you have business cards, I would be happy to display them next to your donated item so that those who attends the dinner will have an opportunity to take your business card. If you know of others who have their own businesses, please pass the word along to them. Anyone interested in donating can email me at jansenadoptionfund@yahoo.com for more information. :)

If you are local and would like to help sell tickets, email me for more information! We need all the help we can get to pass the word around! :)

Thank you!

Hi! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about silent auction fundraising in your area. I'm glad to stop by your site and know more about silent auction fundraising. This is a good read.
Silent auction is a variant of the English auction in which bids are written on a sheet of paper. At the predetermined end of the auction, the highest listed bidder wins the item. This auction is often used in charity events, with many items auctioned simultaneously and "closed" at a common finish time. The auction is "silent" in that there is no auctioneer selling individual items, the bidders writing their bids on a bidding sheet often left on a table near the item. At charity auctions, bid sheets usually have a fixed starting amount, predetermined bid increments, and a "guaranteed bid" amount which works the same as a "buy now" amount. Other variations of this type of auction may include sealed bids. The highest bidder pays the price he or she submitted.
One inefficiency of silent auction fundraising is that item performance data is not tracked and stored.
