Fourth Annual Scrapbook Event to Benefit SunnyBrook Meadows Therapeutic Riding Center|
We are hosting a Scrap-A-Thon & Chinese Auction to benefit SunnyBrook Meadows Therapeutic Riding Center in Montgomery, Pennsylvania. SunnyBrook Meadows is celebrating their 14th year of providing quality therapeutic riding to individuals with varying disabilities, from mental to physical. This will be our fourth event to benefit the riding center. Last year we raised $1,025 which helped purchase 5 stall packages for the new barn. This year, our goal will affect the lives of 9 SunnyBrook Riders. One of the local county offices has discontinued funding for these riders, so we are going to raise money to sponsor them, so that this beneficial therapy can continue. Our goal this year is $ 2,500. SunnyBrook needs roughly $38,000 to operate this year, with fundraising efforts needed to bring in over $ 19,000. Our event is just one designed to meet that goal. Our scrappers have made our event bigger and better each year. And this year is no exception.
Our event will take place, Saturday, April 14, 2007 from 8 am - 5 pm.
Here is where you can help: We are currently looking for prize donations and would love to include your name in our list of those donating a prize or prizes for the participants. We have the support of Donna Downey, Rebecca Sower, and Ali Edwards for the start of the Ultimate Scrappers Dream Package, and we'd love to add some phenomenal, cutting edge tools and products to the grand prize, as well as prize drawings throughout the day. Would you be willing to donate a gift certificate for our event? Or maybe products that just don't seem to want to move from your shelves! If you think you are too far away, think again! These ladies WILL TRAVEL! Many of us 'map quest' scrapbook stores on business trips, vacations, and day trips specifically for scrapping! We will have at least 40 scrapbookers. Your donation will get your product in the hands of dedicated scrapbookers and also entice them to help us fill those 'scrap-spots!' We will also be publishing a list of supporters in our local newspaper. Over the past few years, our area has had 2 scrapping stores open and close, and now, we have one small store which focuses mainly on paper. Scrappers can't buy it, if we can't see it! Please send your generous donation to:
SunnyBrook Charity Scrap-A-Thon c/o Yvonne Winters 197 Smith Drive Montgomery, PA 17752
