On May 21, 2022, we held our very first Spring Fling Fundraiser at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge to wonderful success! After costs, our net proceeds were just over $12,515. We had a silent auction, raffle items, a 50/50 Card raffle, a photo booth, a dessert auction as well as a Raise the Paddle fundraiser. We received donations ranging from flower baskets, quilts, coffee, household items and art to carpet cleaning, a virtual golf session and dinner with a County Commissioner!
Guests enjoyed the camaraderie, the laughter, the joy in seeing others in person and the great food the Elks Lodge is known for as well as joining together to celebrate SPiN Café and our work in the community.
“I met many of our donors whom I only knew by their names,” says SPiN Executive Director Michele Chapman. “It was wonderful to put faces to names and thank everyone individually for contributing to SPiN’s mission of Serving People in Need.”
Any major Fundraiser only happens because of the efforts of a team of dedicated volunteers. These giving individuals work behind the scenes collecting donations, selling tickets and meeting regularly to organize, prepare, and make the BIG DAY happen! We will be starting soon to plan next year’s Spring Fling so if you would like to be part of something bigger than yourself or would like to contribute an item or service please let Michele know at 360-929-0281 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
