Silent Auction Letter Home from 121 Sponsorship Committee

2018 121 Red Arrows Silent Auction

Dear Parents, Guardians, Friends and Family,

I am writing on behalf of the 121 Red Arrows Air Cadet Squadron Sponsorship Committee.

As with most Volunteer Organizations we must conduct our own fund raising. Without the support of the local community, we would be unable to reach the financial requirements to support all of the activities for our Squadron. Our fundraising is mainly by Sponsorship and Donations. Examples of these are the Annual Tag Days in September, sale of Lottery Tickets for the Air Cadet League, and Guelph Storm 50/50 games.

A Silent Auction is one of the other opportunities the Squadron Sponsorship Committee uses to help raise some of these necessary funds.

At the Annual End of Year Cadet and Family Dinner being held on Friday June 22nd at the Royal Canadian Legion, we are having a silent auction, raffle and prize tables.

To make this evening a success for the Squadron, we are looking for donations to be used as prizes at this event.  These donations can be any size, shape, or value, and can include any types of goods, services, gift cards, or tickets to experiences.  Something that you think we could use to help raise funds for the Squadron and the successful bidder would enjoy.  Even one item (no matter how small) from each family would help the Squadron considerably.

If you are able to help with this, please either contact me below with more details, or you could give the donated item(s) to your son or daughter to bring to the Armoury on a Tuesday evening.

The Squadron is a non-profit organization/registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency so for any donations that have a value over $20, your donation is tax-deductible.  The registered charity name is 121 RED ARROWS SQUADRON ROYAL AIR CADETS. The registration number is 130387665.

The 121 Red Arrows Air Cadet Squadron thanks you for your support! If you have any questions, please contact myself or the Squadron Sponsorship Committee Chair.

 

Sincerely,

 

Sue Funkenhauser

2. A silent auction will occur, where attendees can bid their hard earned dollars on these items that have been donated to the Squadron for auction. Bring your cash or cheque for payment. Parents, if you have items to donate to the fund raiser, please see Malcolm Perrior.
Dinner Details
Tickets for serving cadets are free but you must have one to attend so that we can order the appropriate number of meals required.

Dinner, as always, will be delicious, however if you have any allergies or sensitivities or special meal requirements please let us know.
