First Fundraiser of 2013 Brainstorming

On the heels of the last post, I want to discuss our first and most important 2013 resolution/goal for the Sanctuary, fundraising!
I would like to do monthly fundraisers but I know that it’s impossible so we are going to try and focus on one or two major fundraisers for the year and see how it goes. If we can get the ball rolling and get volunteers to help with the planning, our first fundraiser will be a Chocolate Auction set in February. I don’t have any of the details because we are still in the brainstorming phase.
But if you want to help out with the auction in any way, please, please, please let me know! We need everything from an auctioneer to chocolate items to auction off to a location for the event. I’d also like to do a silent auction so if you have any items you’d like to donate (either for the silent auction or for the chocolate auction), please email me at borderlandshorsesanctuary@yahoo.com!
It may be a very small auction and only bring in a few bucks but every dollar counts. I’d love to hear your ideas for this fundraiser, so please email me.
We don’t have a large following so we need your help in spreading the word for this fundraiser event. Keep in mind that we are not a non-profit so your donations are not tax deductible at this time (and I apologize for that).  But it is for a good cause. All proceeds will be going directly to the horses.
