BLACK TIE “GALA” / SILENT & LIVE AUCTION FUNDRAISER
Sunday April 16TH, 4PM TO 8PM
Take off your pants, put on your black ties and clutch your pearls! We are going fancy and free in a BIG WAY on Sunday, April 16th from 4-8pm! We are holding a Black Tie “Gala” and mostly silent auction! This is your chance to dress up as fancy as you can and still be naked! We want a great combination of prim, proper and silly nakedness!
HOW DOES A SILENT AUCTION WORK ?
We will have tables set up with the items for auction. Each item will have a paper next to it detailing the item’s actual value and minimum bid. All you have to do is write your name/email address and bid amount! Everyone will have an opportunity to bid, out bid, and get out bid on every item! The winner of each item is the highest bid that reaches the minimum reserve price or anyone that is willing to pay the “buy it now” price. You must be able and willing to purchase the item at the event to secure it. The Silent Auction will have items between $10 and $40 in “actual” value give or take. Something for everyone!
WHO ARE WE FUNDRAISING FOR?
Katie and I are involved in a small organization that helps needy families in the western suburbs. They do things like provide Thanksgiving dinners, coat drives, supply closets for schools and support local food pantries. We know that 100% of the money they receive will go to help people not towards overhead or salaries. As the funds we raise are spent, we will be sure to keep everyone informed. We aren’t naming them in group emails or online to protect them from any unusual publicity they could get being associated with a nudist group. We will of course name them at the event! If you would like more information before then, please feel free to email us.
WILL MY DONATION BE TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
The short answer is no, sorry.
SOUNDS AWESOME, HOW CAN I HELP ?
There are two ways you can help!
First, you can come to this awesome event and bid on some items!
Second, if you can bring an item worth at least $20 in value (or more of course) for the silent auction! Gift cards, theme baskets, nudist related items, something from your business or job, or who knows ? Be creative and have fun! If you want to donate an item, but won’t be able to make the event, let us know so we figure out picking it up. Please make sure whatever you bring has an easily verifiable value. Items should be new/like new unless a collectible. Ask your favorite restaurant/shop to donate a gift certificate!
BUT WAIT…THIS GETS EVEN BETTER!!!
We are going to have a real live auction on higher priced items! Everyone attending will have their own Chicago Fun Club paddle to bid! We will be announcing some of these awesome items as we get closer to the event.
AND...we might have a few fun silly surprises for everyone.
