Your business is invited to participate in a fun and meaningful holiday fundraiser. The RO Foundation’s Charity Decorated Tree and Wreath Auction is a great way to get your employees involved and into the holiday spirit by decorating a tree or a wreath.
The RO Foundation, www.rofoundation.com, assists patients and families who are faced with emergency travel to treatment centers and hospitals, near and far, for long term treatment. Assistance is given to cover the unexpected costs for gas, food, and lodging. As the fund is dedicated to assisting those who live within a 20 mile radius of Dunkirk,N.Y., we are asking businesses in the area to participate in this festive fundraiser.
The Charity Decorated Tree and Wreath Auction is set for December 10, 2011, from 2 until 5 p.m., in Fredonia’s West Barker Commons. This year’s theme is “Old Time Main Street Christmas….Tree and Wreath Auction.” Be a part of the holiday excitement where families come to the Commons to pick out their holiday tree and wreath.
Our plan is to bring back the old Main Street Christmas, with Santa and Mrs. Clause leading the way to a Christmas Wonderland. Decorations will adorn the Barker Commons area, with demonstrations for fire prevention of your tree, pictures with Santa and Mrs. Clause, sleigh rides, carolers, cookies, hot beverages and of course, the bidding for Christmas trees and wreaths. Bids will start at $50 for trees and $20 for wreaths. At 4 p.m., from the gazebo, the trees and wreaths will be awarded to the highest bidders.
We would like to invite your business and employees to participate by donating a decorated Christmas tree or wreath for the auction. Your participation will bring awareness to your company’s generosity as well as get your employee’s involved with a great cause. The holidays are soon approaching so please review the proposals and return the sign up sheet by November 30th.
With your company’s support, our future commitment to our families in need can truly expand.
We hope the RO Foundation can count on your support for this great fundraising event!
