On Saturday, March 29th, we start the tagging party at 10:30AM and work until we’re done, which is usually around 5PM. If you’re unable to stay all day, please consider coming by for a couple of hours. Any length of time will be a big help! We DO take a food break in the middle of the day, and we each bring something to snack on or drink (fruit juice, soda, water, etc.). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to R.S.V.P. and let us know what food or drink item you’ll be able to bring. Each person can bring a small or moderate amount (2 bottles of soda, a large bag of chips, 1 kind of dessert, a few sandwiches, plate of cheese and crackers, etc). We put it all out, buffet style, and take about 45 minutes to reward ourselves with food (positive reinforcement!). If you can’t make it to the Tagging Party or are coming straight from something else and can’t bring food, please let us know that, too. There’s always enough to share!
What do we do at the Tagging Party?
All the donated items for the auction should be received by us by Saturday, March 22, 2014. We’ll need to decide which go into the Live Auction (usually about 60 items), which go into the Yellow Silent Auction and which go into the Blue Silent Auction (each also have about 50-60). We physically move all the items into their designated rooms. We then put a colored dot sticker on each item showing the Auction Catalog number assigned to that item. Items that do not yet have an appealing description written for them need to have that done, so we need creative writers to do that on the spot. Eventually, all items will to be boxed up for transport to the Holiday Inn on the morning of the Auction!
Please let us know if you’d like to attend the tagging party by emailing us.
It’s a lot of work but we make it a lot of fun!
