Hi, FAR-West friends!
Before we know it our conference will be upon us. Can't wait to see you! In the meantime Dana Charnofsky is putting together the Raffle for this year, and she needs your help. We've been able to raise a significant amount of money for FAR-West the past two years - let's do it again and have fun while we're at it!
Do you have something to offer that someone else at the conference would be interested in winning? We are looking for donations that will have some value for conference attendees. Here are some examples of offerings from the past two years: new acoustic guitar from a local music store, professional resume or bio writing, concert tickets, voice-over workshop, electric tuner, restaurant gift card, 4 hours of studio time...
If you have something you'd like to donate for the Raffle, or if you'd like to discuss it directly with Dana, please email her at PurpleDCconcerts@yahoo.com
This year we will do a different form of Raffle, so some prizes will be bundled with others. Raffle items can be things that will appeal to both musicians and non-musicians, they can be services or products. Ticket buyers will be able to choose which item or bundle of items they wish to put their money towards. For example, if you buy 15 tickets ($20) you may decide to put eight toward that guitar, three toward a package that has 4 packs of new strings/Shur microphone, three more toward a free registration for next year's conference, and toss one ticket into a package with a free meal at Denny's/2 hours of salsa lessons/2 concert tix. It's up to you!
This year there will be no Raffle prizes accepted as donations at the conference! ALL arrangements must be made prior to that time. Please don't hesitate! If you'd like to contribute to our money-raising Raffle, or know someone who would, get in touch with Dana now. If you want your donation listed in the Program Book, you must clear it with Dana Charnofsky by or before September 18.
Thanks, and here's hoping we make lots of money for FAR-West this year while helping people be happy winners!
PS: All proceeds from the Raffle go toward helping to fund various sponsorship areas at the next conference.
