We could really use your help!


We need raffle prizes for our wine tasting October 7th,  
4-9 pm.
Even better we would love to have you join us at Nora’s for it.


We are having a last minute brainstorming meeting
When:  this coming Monday September 10th at 6:30pm
Location:  Marita Niquette’s House – 349 North Loomis Street, Southwick, MA  01077.

If you can’t make it but still want to help please contact Anita Larkin at anita.larkin@comcast.net.  Anita has a list of all of the businesses that have been contacted as well as ideas for ones we can contact. We are trying very hard not to contact a business more than once.  In this difficult economy businesses often get asked to donate goods and services that stretch them beyond their means.

We do not have to limit raffle items to those from local or traditional type businesses;

Creative ideas from donors with hobbies and weekend side businesses have been;
Personal Chef Services – Dessert for the holidays
Floral Services – A holiday Centerpiece

I have attached some information about the wine tasting, pantry and a sample solicitation letter.
Many thanks for all you have done and all you continue to do.
