Calling all bar owners and businesses

Right..... I'll own up right from the begining .....I am on the scrounge

As you are all aware (I am sure) SARA Animal Shelter is overcrowded and usually runs "in the red" at the bank.

I am trying to raise some extra cash so I have decided to organise two additional fund raisers for December. I already have the car boot sale planned at the Tahiche Garden centre on the 8th and I plan to have an auction when that closes at around 12 noon or 1pm. I have been gathering really good quality items for over a year now so I am not short of things to auction. (I could always squeeze in a few more I am also organising a Grand Raffle with tickets going on sale in September. I will be using proper printed tickets with a stub (you know the sort) and all the people that will be selling the tickets will have a list of companies etc who have donated items. The draw for this raffle will be made during or after the auction.
This is where you come in...... I am looking for prizes for the raffle. The only thing is, I don't want it to be "any old raffle" I want the prizes to be "worth winning" i.e. DVD player, air tickets back to the UK, weeks accommodation in an apartment, mobile phone, Christmas hamper etc etc.
Now I understand that most people are struggling and I am not looking for expensive prizes from small businesses. What I thought might be good is if bar owners donated a bottle or two and I could make up a couple of "Booze Hampers" or restaurants/supermarkets donated some food for a standard food hamper. That way I get my BIG prizes but it hasn't cost the individual too much money.
Alternatively, maybe you could donate, say 25 euros, and I can club it all together to buy a DVD or a camera.
And I wouldn't say no if anyone could manage a couple of flights to the UK or a weeks car hire for example.

I will do my best to give you as much publicity as poss. I can put it on our website, get your name on the prize lists, I might even be able to mention something in my write-ups in the Gazette. I will be pushing the raffle on here and other forums later in the year and I should be able to name drop a bit on those.

I costs SARA around 500 euros A DAY to remain open and that is just for food, medications, cleaning materials etc. We are not just a re-homing centre, we pay the medical bills for animals knocked over in traffic accidents, we denounce individuals for cruelty cases and we spay and neuter feral cats that plague the hotels and appartment complexes to TRY and keep the numbers down. All this has to be paid for over and above the everyday costs.

We really need your help ....... together we can make a difference.

Thanks for listening

Lynne
P.S. If anyone can take a collection box for their bar we would appreciate it

Hi Dottie,

I've sent you a PM but I will put it here as well (need the publicity LOL)



We can accept cheques in sterling as the bank change them for us free of charge....so no problem.

If you can make it for my attention and put a little note inside saying donation for raffle/rifa.

Yes Alan,

Taking auction bids anyway you wish....Email probably best as I can print them off. sarashelter@hotmail.com

I will use any Email bids the same as they use the phone during normal auctions if anyone cannot attend.
just give me your starting bid and the maximum you are prepared to go to and I will bid on your behalf.
