WE NEED YOUR HELP
On December 3rd, 2016 the Wando JROTC Booster Club will be holding their Annual Silent Auction, the largest fundraiser of the year. With the money raised through the Silent Auction, the Booster Club can continue to supplement many of the programs that impact our cadets. Silent Auction proceeds will be used, in part, to:
Purchase new uniforms and equipment for the Unit’s Sabre Team, Drill Team, and Color Guard (such as sabers, berets, rifles, ribbons etc.) As well as provide bus transportation to their events and competitions.
In exchange, our cadets become responsible citizens of the community by participating in charitable events such as:
- Habitat for Humanity stores and building of habitat homes
- Patriots Point events honoring our veterans
- Charity runs ( Bridge Run, Race for the Cure, James Island Festival of Lights run)
- Beach clean ups
- Community Parades
- Reading programs at elementary schools
- Ceremonial Color Guard Presentations
This is how you can help! We need items to auction at the event- and we need your help to get them! Do you or a family member work for a business that manufactures something or provides a service? Run or work at a restaurant? Sell home products such as Thirty One Bags, Lia Sophia, Pampered Chef… Have a time share or beach/golf resort connection? If so, please consider donating an item or two to the auction. No amount or item is too small, we greatly appreciate any and all donations. Don’t know of anyone you can ask but still want to help? Consider donating your time at the auction, we will need volunteers for various duties. Your child has been asked to contribute $2 towards their block basket. Each block will vote on a theme and then purchase items to go in the basket. This is a contest so encourage them to get creative. The block basket winners will receive a free uniform day of Major’s choice!
We encourage all parents to attend, tickets are only $30 each or 2 for $50. Come relax and enjoy the evening. We have already received some great items: A signed Football Helmet from Clemson and a Guitar signed by all the members of Hootie and the Blowfish!
If you can help and you have your donation item ready, please text/phone or email Tammi Groesbeck at (630)-222-0407 or Wandojrotcauction@gmail.com to arrange for items to be picked up. You can contact Tammi or Lynne Way for ticket purchase.
