Grad Nite - Scrappy Donations Needed!

GRAD NITE... Yep... another Committee that Jeff and I volunteer for at our high school... and we have a BLAST with this group! So much so that I am the new Chair of the Grad Nite Committee!! WOOOO HOOOO!!! Grad Nite is an on-site, all night, sober event for the graduating class... lots of food, dancing, paint ball, laser tag, stage shows, video games, full beauty salon, caricature artists... on and on... AND... with my love of scrapping, we have added a new booth to our Grad Nite this year!!! We are going to have a LARGE SCRAPBOOK AND PAPER CRAFTING BOOTH at this year's Grad Nite!!! Seniors will have the opportunity to bring all of their high school pictures/memories and scrap all night and/or we will be teaching a Make and Take frame the kids can make that night and use to take home pictures from the event. We have a professional photographer who has donated his time and will be taking photos all night, printing them onsite, and displaying them for everyone to see (like they do on cruise ships.) I don't know if they have scrapping at Grad Nite's around the country... but I know we are the first around here!!!

There has been A LOT of interest shown for this new booth at Grad Nite, but I need some help. Since this is our first time with this booth, we need a TON of supplies... everything, actually! We need adhesive and cutters and scissors, and cardstock and patterned paper and paint/ink and embellishments... We are the Orange Glen Patriots and our colors are red, white and blue, so any patriotic and/or graduation supplies would be GREAT! Any supplies would be AWESOME so the kids could scrap about their high school memories from all through the year!!!

If you are involved in the scrapbook industry and would be able to donate, please let me know. You can email me at traceylocher@cox.net. We are a non-profit organization and I would be happy to send you our tax ID# for tax purposes. We also advertise each of our donors on a large banner at our school for a few weeks, in the graduation program and in a local newspaper ad. I would also BE HAPPY to write an article about Scrapping at Grad Nite if one of the magazines would be interested in publishing it!!!... who knows... maybe we can help start a new trend!!!

Thanks for your help and have a FANTASTIC weekend!!!

Hey Tracey, let me know if you still want/need some supplies. I'm pretty empty this week after the baby shower today and will have time to sort and send some stuff out.

We had a Grad Night at my High School, too. It was so much fun, definitely something everyone went to. They had a full casino (fake money) with parents and teachers as the dealers, a dress up/photo station, karaoke, pool tables, darts, BINGO, and TONS TONS TONS OF FOOD! Also, there was one large wall where everyones parents put together all the emberassing pictures of us growing up so it was fun to walk around and look. Anywho, have a great weekend shoot me an email later!

Oh, and HAPPY NSD!!!
