If a gal wants to take forty or so or more of her spicy lady friends on some kind of grand adventure, as I do, then said lady needs to sleuth the fund-age to make it happen. Everyone’s pleased when someone else covers the gas money, so I’ve been looking between the cushions and shaking the sheets to find ways to resource the life(dot)next retreat.
No promises here, but I am a master of the bargain- and I’m on the verge of securing at least one possible (incredible) venue for free. I don’t want to jinx it so let’s leave it at that. But since sweat equity is massively appealing to me, I wanted to throw out the possibility of raising sponsorship dollars by offering to auction off goods or services that you gals already have or do on a regular basis. For example, since I live on campus I often find discarded furniture that just needs a little love. So I refinish it and sell it off. (If you had any doubts before as to whether or not I am completely nuts, you shouldn’t now.)
So far, those of you who have expressed interest and availability for November are:
Web & print designers
Planners of the highest order
Who among you might be willing to help me plan an auction or other development pre-event so that we can offset the cost of the retreat for all us working stiffs?
