I just wanted to thank everybody for making our Art Raffle such a huge success for the guild. We had a lot of fun, and exceeding our $800 fund-raising goal by more than $300! Events like this are successful because of the contributions of many. A few special thanks:
–All of the past & future guest artists that donated pieces for the raffle. You have helped us make our Guest Artist program wonderful.
–All of the guild members that donated pieces for the raffle. You guys rock!
–Everybody that bought raffle tickets on the web, on the phone, or in person, for your financial support.
The totals don’t include our biggest donation–Ellen Marshall will be teaching for us in Nov. and plans to donate all of the proceeds back to the guild. She’ll be debuting a brand new technique–we can’t wait!
–Sarah Fisher, for managing all the web stuff, and setting it up so that people could buy tickets via paypal.
–Linda Cook, who managed all those on-line orders, and sold all the in-person tickets, AND brought home-made brownies.
Thanks again to everyone for their support. This raffle will go a long way toward keeping our guest artist program financially viable. And we’re already spending that money! Looking forward into the 2009-2010 guild year, we already have Donna Kato, Grant Diffendaffer, and Libby Mills lined up….Thanks to all of you.
