Thank you for reading Barn Buzz and your continued loyal support of Field of Dreams.
Hopefully everyone is getting excited about the 2017 Mane Event, this year on Saturday, April 29th at 6:30pm.
We continually innovate to make FOD's premier fund raising event for the year fresh, exciting, and with individual fundraising items at the event that are both attractive and successful.
We already have great items within both the Silent and Live Auctions, but are looking for a few more to be auctioned in the exciting Live Auction segment.
Everyone has great ideas and knows others in their worlds- family, neighbors, work, social groups, that most likely have experiences or valuable items they may like to offer at a Not-for-Profit fundraiser. The donor receives a tax deductible donation for its use. The recipient, FOD, gets a really cool item to auction and raise the needed funds for the horses. The auction purchaser gets a nice trip, or experience, or item that they want.
Please search your worlds for trips: weekends at a lake house, a condo vacation someplace outside Chicago, an all-day boat excursion, great sports or concert tickets, a Chicago sports team jersey, for example and bring the donation commitment to FOD.
The FOD Board will choose the two best donated items and those donors will each receive two tickets to the Mane Event and the eternal gratitude of the horses for being an integral part of raising funds for their support.
