NEEDED: Raffle Gifts / Donations for Conference

Requesting donations from local companies is a way that HD raises funds to support our efforts in the Illinois Chapter. We have copies of our Not-for-Profit Status Donation Letter available for distribution to these corporations for their IRS files.

Do you or someone you know work at a hotel, an airline, a spa, a gift shop, a golf shop, a restaurant, a bookstore, a flower shop, a theater, etc.

If so, you can help HD by soliciting these establishments to request their contribution of a gift or service, or a monetary donation to the Illinois State HD Conference 2000. We are seeking donations of items for door prizes and to raffle off at our conference.

Please contact Beth Senn-Brouwer (BrowerB@aol.com) or Maryann Moynihan (mmoyniha@bcsinc.com) to let us know how you can help.
