2017 “CASH FOR A CAUSE . . .” BASKET REQUEST
Attention all Members, School Districts and Regions! The MASL Board has changed the Dollars for Scholars program to one called “CASH FOR A CAUSE . . .”. Starting in 2017, the Board will select a project to donate the profits from our annual raffle. The raffle program will remain the same, but profits will be earmarked for a different project each year, as our needs change. This year’s raffle will be “CASH FOR A CAUSE. . . Advocating for our Profession”.
So, now you are all invited to participate in the Cash for a Cause . . . BASKET RAFFLE! We are asking YOU to please continue the tradition of generous donations. In the past we have received Holiday theme baskets, electronic baskets with Kindles and Nooks, library themed baskets, sample wine or coffee baskets, coolers with picnic items, St. Louis themes, KC themes, Award book baskets, and stuffed animals with books. As you can see, it doesn't have to be a basket--just use your imagination!
Raffle tickets are sold for $1 each, or 6 for $5.
If you, your district, or your region plan to participate in the Basket Raffle, please contact Vicki at firstname.lastname@example.org (notice: NEW email address)--so she can plan for display area. Please do NOT reply to this email, as it will go to the MASL Office. All we need is the name of the contact person and the region/district/or school. We do not need what you are donating. Please note: Baskets need to be brought down to the Exhibit Area early on Sunday (or even on Saturday). We begin selling tickets at noon on Sunday—and you will want your basket to be seen by everyone! If you are arriving later on Sunday—please see if someone else can deliver the basket.
Thanks in advance for your participation!
