    McClure Mixer Request for Volunteers
    Posted on 03/07/2016

    Another powerful way to support your kids at McClure is...

    Volunteer for the Mixer!

    Please contact Erin Frost at ejfrost@comcast.net to volunteer or with any questions.

    Looking for a way to participate in the PTA and support our school programs?  Come join the fun and help volunteer with our Spring Mixer!  We are less than 2 months away to putting on one of our largest PTA fundraising events of the year but we need your help in making it a success!  Our mixer this year will be held on Saturday,April 30th at Hale’s Palladium tickets will be going on sale soon.

    Here are just a few of the areas where we are looking for help.

    • Dessert Dash - looking for 1 or 2 people to help spearhead this for the auction
    • Wine Grab - looking for 1 -2 people to lead this for the auction
    • Data Entry - 1 person able to go to the school and enter in all of the donations into the auction tracker system
    • Art Work - are you creative and good with making signs?  Let your creative side shine with putting together the sponsor brochure and additional posters for the event
    • Love to sell?  On the night of the auction we will need 2 people to help sell raffle tickets during the mixer
    • Ticket sales - we are in the process of getting the ticket website online, will need help with getting the word out to drive ticket sales and keeping track of people who have purchased tickets
    • Procurement! We can still use help with securing donations.  Do you have time to help with calling businesses or are you able to donate?

    Some ideas for procurement ~ no idea is too small or big!

    • Gift certificates to your favorite restaurant, hotels, theater, dry cleaners, book store, or cooking classes are always big sellers. Seattle is home to many fabulous restaurants and a gift certificate to one of these is always a big hit.
    • Do you have game tickets to the Seahawks, Mariners or Sounders you can donate?
    • Do you own a 2nd home and can offer a weekend getaway  at your cabin, beach house, or timeshare?
    • How about hosting a chef's dinner at your home?
    • Create a gift basket - wine and chocolate; margarita makings, coffee lovers, Italian themed basket, ethnic foods the choices are limitless

    We are doing a volunteer swap with a few schools.  If we help out at their mixer they will in return help with ours so this frees up more people to enjoy the event!

    • Need 1-2 people to help out Queen Anne Elementary Mixer  Friday March 11th @ SODO Showbox from 6-10:30
    • Need 1-2 people to help out at Lawton's Mixer Friday April 1st @ Ballard Bay Club from 5:30 - 11

    Please contact Erin Frost at ejfrost@comcast.net to volunteer or with any questions.

    Thank you in advance for your support!
