The 6th Annual Culinary Cook-Off at Mount Royal is fast approaching, with just over a month until the big day on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017. To date, there are eight restaurants competing, which is a full house and huge part of the recipe for another successful event.
Our event information is updated regularly on our website, facebook page, and twitter feed. One way to help out with the event is to follow us on our social media feeds and share our content frequently. This is our main avenue for exposure, so please share, share, share!
Another great way to get involved with the fundraiser, is by signing-up on our online volunteer sign-up for a shift to help on event day, April 22nd. The shifts are mostly short and sweet and the event is a great time, especially when your volunteering at it.
Our Silent and Live Auctions are a huge part to the success of this event. Last year we raised over $18,000.00 and we are hoping to keep our momentum going and get as many wonderful items this year for the silent and live auctions.Some ways to contribute to the silent auction:
Some ways to contribute to the silent auction:
-A personal donation, or a donation from friends or family members who may be willing to sponsor an attractive item (i.e. tickets to a concert, the ballet, symphony; electronics; gift cards)
-A personal donation, or a donation from friends or family members who are artisans and may be willing donate their art
-A personal donation, or a donation from friends or family members who run their own home-based business
-Making a themed basket (i.e. emergency kit for the car, beach party, bbq, pet toys, candy, restock your liquor cabinet, beauty products)
Thinking out of the box:
-Do you know any local farmers who would be willing to donate farm fresh goods i.e. a side of beef, seasonal produce boxes
-Do you know a masseuse, a chiropractor, or a hairstylist who would be willing to donate a service
-Do you know a contact at a car dealership or auto detailing shop who would donate a service (i.e. an oil change, car detailing package)
You may still want to do some canvassing and I’ve attached our event donation letter for your convenience, but often times we have to look no further than our own personal circles to get some really sweet goods! Donations can be signed in at the office at the school.
Many thanks-yous in advance for all of your support!
