Fundraiser Dinner Feb 18th
“Confirmation from Duffy’s for Feb 18th. Will get the tickets this week”
Mostly this is just to make people aware. A placeholder post.
Do we have any silent auction items?
Do we have ticket sales volunteers?
I can approach the social committee at BCLC. Let me know the details as they are firmed up.
@Grant-Fraser, I can ask BLSC, and a few different places at TRU about silent auction items. This might help sell a few tickets.
I only want to do this if we are going to be really serious about promotion and try to sell out the tickets. We only get to play those cards so often.
I’ll see what the response here is. It would be good to throw the event on Facebook ASAP. I can set up a "email@example.com", and monitor the box for ticket sales if we are going to go with e-transfer. I’m not sure who does the evensi stuff, but i’m pretty sure we could handle payment and keep a will-call list that way as well.
Ill make a facebook ad for this - shoot me the details and Ill get something up.
Kamloops Makerspace Fundraiser Dinner
Sunday, February 18th - time?
Duffy’s Pub, 1797 Pacific Way Kamloops BC
Chicken or Beef? How does that work?
$25? Cash or E-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org (note: “Feb 18 dinner” with transfer)****
I can probably convince 9 other people to come to dinner that night - put me down for 10 tickets.
I’ll donate a Dinner for Two for the silent auction. I’ll get one ready at my North Kamloops store. Can anyone pick it up? My week is freaking crazy, so I’m not sure I can get into the space to drop it off.
@Grant-Fraser if we can get the laser up and running again, i can make an iris for auction. I do have one i could donate, but i would prefer a new, clean one for auctioning off.
@Krankin we have the loaner laser. It may be a while before the regular laser works again.
@Grant-Fraser not sure the kerf on the loaner laser is tight enough for my current cutting plan. But i can still provide one i already have built.
@Vaughn, initial post says Duffy’s, not McCracken’s. Usually when I have done fundraisers there in the past, it is billed as a steak dinner, and there is a chicken or veg option available when you are seated at the event. Normally there are two seatings (¿5:30 and 7?). Can anyone confirm these details?
The email@example.com email address is set up (will set up monitoring for it this afternoon).
@robert, we can organize pickup for sure, my weekend is crazy as well, but we have a few weeks to sort it out. I can swing by during the week next week, if no one is going past there sooner.
@dbrockle, go for it with BCLC social committee, it sounds like we are trying to sell both seatings.
I’ll hit the TRU machine up in a few places next week, Big Little Science Centre as well.
@Grant-Fraser, thanks for being on this!
@Vaughn here is the link too the last dinner https://community.kamloopsmakerspace.com/topic/1250/pub-night-fundraiser-dinner/2
@Grant-Fraser thanks for posting.
Can you confirm that there are 120 tickets total (60 each for 5pm and 7pm seatings)?
Also, for the price, the thread you posted says suggested $20. How do people feel about bumping it up to $25 per ticket? I like the idea of over half the face value going directly to the space, I think that makes for a good tagline on an ad as well.
OK, I think Ive got the details I need for an ad. Thanks @Grant-Fraser for the link.
I think $25 is a good price for a fundraiser dinner - does anyone want to keep it at $20? Is the ticket price printed on the tickets? If so, Duffy’s should be alerted to that as they print the tickets?
Can I get a proofing of this? Can we charge $25 for the tickets @megan-fenkhuber (I think we should).
I will publish it once I get the all clear…

Sorry, life got off track with working a bunch of extra hours this week. I will get the tickets tomorrow and have them at the Space by 7PM.
@Vaughn, is the pasta made from real vegetarians?
Looks good if we can do the price correction on the tickets.
It appears that you are using tilde’s as em-dashes (with spaces on either side). I am guessing these are stylistic choices—rather than typographical errors—in an attempt to make everything swoopy, even the straight punctuation!
I posted the facebook event for this - please share and help sell tickets!
@megan-fenkhuber has the tickets - $25 each
(please edit update this list as required)
(please edit update this list as required)
I will hit up Big Little Science Centre, TRU Faculty of Science, TRU School of Business and Economics, and possibly one or two other appendages of that machine to promote ticket sales, and solicit schwag bags for door scores.
