Hello PIR 9-19-14 families!
We are starting a Basket Project for our Meet and Greet to benefit Sarge and his wife who put on the Meet and Greets each week for the Navy families. Sarge and his wife purchase and make all the food, supplies and a DJ for all of us to enjoy. To help offset their cost we would like to have baskets or items for a basket donated to be raffled off.
What is involved is that you simply volunteer to put together a basket or tote bag filled with items from your home state. Or, if you choose to donate one item we could add that to other baskets also. Attendees can then purchase the ticket(s) for any basket they would like the opportunity to win! There is a Walmart next to the Meet and Greet if you would like to purchase a basket, tote or gift bag to put the items in instead of packing it for your trip.
Suggestion of items could be wine from your state, coffees, iTunes gift card, calling card for their SR, candles, bath products, small state knick knack, specialty food...the list goes on and on. Don't forget the little brothers and sisters who may be there. :) Be creative!!
Please bring your basket or items with you to the Meet and Greet where there will be a table set up for them.
This is strictly voluntary and please let me know if you would like to participate.
We will also need someone to help Sarge's wife sell the raffle tickets.
Thanks so much!! I look forward to these couple of days meeting everyone and seeing our loved ones!!

Hmmm...not sure...I may have, LOL. What DIV is your son in? You can either add text in one of the groups or if you want to do live chat, click on the box at the bottom of your screen that says "main room". Your cursor will blink at the bottom by the smiley face.
Can you please pm me the total number of baskets that come in and how much was raised for Sarge? Thanks for all your help in getting this fun event together!! Traveling mercies to Great Lakes and have the most awesome time ever!!
