End of Season Social & Fundraiser – Saturday March 4
Come celebrate a great season at the final social with fun, food, sledding and great prizes in our raffle and new this year – a silent auction! RSVP here: http://butternutrace.com/race-club-social-events/
We also encourage you to pre-pay ($5 per person) – the link for PayPal is on the same page.

 

Call for Raffle & Silent Auction Items!
Every year, at our year-end social, we conduct a raffle.  This year, in addition to our raffle, we’d like to have a silent auction.  For the silent auction, we’re looking for donations of goods and services that are at a slightly higher value that can be bid on privately.  We are seeking items such as tickets to sporting or cultural events, a stay in a weekend home,  a service you provide (landscaping, consulting, photography, etc.), lessons for something you’re good at such as cake decorating or private ski lessons,  goods that might be of interest to our skiers, gift certificates to local restaurants, ice cream/candy shops, etc. 

For silent auction items, please email martha@bluestargardens.com with a brief description of your donation, location, retail value and dates of availability (if applicable).  A photo or website link would be helpful too. Please submit before March 1.  

For raffle items, please bring them to the social on March 4th as usual to be placed on our raffle table.  You can use this letter 2017 Butternut Race Club Donations (if needed) to share with merchants.  

Donations are tax-deductible and profits from the raffle and silent auction will support our race program.  Thank you in advance for your participation.
