Bridging AZ Furniture Bank Fundraiser

We will be joining the AZ WineBats at Blue Martini to support Bridging AZ Furniture Bank. A Furniture Bank is similar to a Food Bank except Furniture Banks distribute furniture and household items to families in need. Over 100 people are expected for this special event, and your help will truly make a difference for this great cause!

TASKS
We are looking for those who could assist at the door to take donations and give out a complimentary drink and raffle ticket. (Guests will start arriving so if you could be there by 4:30 pm, that would help out a lot).

We also will need help going through the crowd and selling raffle tickets throughout the evening. 

Please indicate in your RSVP which task you would like to do (or both):
1. Assisting at the door
2. Selling Raffle Tickets in the crowd

RAFFLE ITEMS NEEDED
BTW, if you have any raffle items that you can donate, please leave me a message. The more items, the more money we can raise. :-)

    :-( I am not feeling well today and am going to have to cancel. I am so thankful to see there is a waiting list so that my cancel can still be picked up by someone. Sounds like so much fun and was really looking forward to it!
