A Letter from the Festival Committee
Dear Parish Family:
We would like to thank everyone for the support you gave so generously to the festival in the past! While our festival may look different this year, plans are underway for our annual St. James Fall Family Festival which is scheduled for September 19th & 20th and we are asking for your help once again. The festival has been a success in the past due to the help of many volunteers and donors from the parish and community who give freely of their time, talents, and treasures. The purpose of the festival is to support our parish and the needs of the parish in which we serve our community.
As part of new festival format, we will have online live and silent auctions which are a major part of the festival’s financial success, but it cannot be successful without the generous donations given by our community. With the online auction format, we look forward to even further outreach to individuals that may have been unable to attend in person in years past.
We rely on both merchandise and cash donations; we are asking for your support in this endeavor. The deadline is August 31st, 2020. nothing is too big or too small, so please be generous! In the past, the following items have proven to be the most successful in both our live and silent auctions:
- Group dinner excursions and outings/tours
- Sport tickets
- Homemade woodwork (bars, benches, lawn decorations)
- Nursery and landscaping items (planters, yard art)
- Themed baskets (wine, camping, toys/games, movie night, day at the beach, football tailgate, etc.)
- Gift certificates for services (i.e., salons) and dining out
- Weekend/overnight stays in destinations
- Homemade items (canned goods, quilts, etc.)
- Fire pits
Please note that these are just suggestions, and we encourage you to give as your heart leads you. We hope we can count on you or your business for a tax-deductible donation for our festival. Please contact an auction committee member below if you need your donation picked up. You may also take your donation to the church office.
Thank you in advance for your generous help and support for the St. James Fall Family Festival. May God bless you.
