Scholarship Raffle Donations Needed

URGENT! Lots of help is needed to make this banquet the huge success that it has been in the past! We are need of at least 5-6 more volunteers to help gather donations for our raffle baskets. Please consider volunteering a few hours of your time to help make some phone calls, maybe stop at a few businesses or do some mailings for us.

If you know of any business that might like to donate to our scholarship fundraiser, please use the Scholarship Donation letter located on the Music Mentors website. This letter explains that we are a non-profit, tax exempt organization, what the donation is for and how to donate. The website also has a list (Scholarship Donation Progress Worksheet) of the businesses we have already contacted and those who have donated. We want to be sure we do not approach a business multiple times.

The banquet will be held at LaMalfa on Sunday, November 12, from 3-8 PM, so we are in crunch time for our raffle donations! Invites will be coming though an email through Infinite Campus within the next day or so!
Please contact Mary McFarland with any assistance you could provide, any donations you have gathered or names of business that you have contacted. Her contact email is scholarships@musicmentors.org
