The Craft and Bake Sale was a big success! What a busy day we made $3200 in craft and baked goods plus $533 in cookbook sales. The Fundraising Committee wants to thank all the volunteers who donated craft items and baked goods. Without your support we would not have been able to have such a successful event.
I also wanted to share with you what it takes to make these events happen. It’s more than receiving all the donations and carrying them to UIHC. We have meetings to organize all aspects of the event from reserving the area, requesting tables and linen, publicity on the event, logging donations as they come in, meetings to price items, set up and break down of the event etc. We have tireless volunteers (Michelle Hogue, Linda and Laura Aker, Audrey Knox, Nancy Fisher) who are up before dawn and meet to set the area up. And local volunteers who stop by throughout the day to support the event.
