Hi everyone! This is just a friendly reminder that we’re having our Family Night meeting this Thursday, September 11th at 7pm at Sheckler Elementary School’s Large Group Room. The meeting will cover all aspects of our upcoming FAMILY NIGHT Fundraiser on Friday, October 10th. Remember this is our only fundraising event and we need your help to make it a successful night!

All we need from our members are two things:

1. To donate two gifts for our auction:

  •   Common donations are baskets made up of home decor, back to school supplies, toys etc. We’re also having a special section of just baked goods, so you can bake your favorite dessert, put it in a nice and attractive basket or box and it’ll sure draw people to the table! This year we’d like to see more business donations, so feel free to visit the local businesses around you to see if they’ll offer any business donation such as gift certificates. We have a donation letter that you can take with you. If you’d like a copy of that letter, head on over to the Contact Us page and email us a request.

2. To serve on a committee:

  • Food (make, prepare and serve the food the night of the auction)
  • Auction (prepare the auciton items, tickets, sell tickets, monitor items during auction)
  • Kid’s Games (create games for children of all ages, monitor the games)

* Note that people on the auction committee may be asked to help out with the kid’s games because of the amount of people that is needed to run all the kid games and activities.

* We ask that everyone help with set-up and tear-down to make the night run smoothly.

It truly is a great night full of fun and friends. I love getting together with everyone and sharing the gift of theatre with our community. Family Night is just the start of our production year and it is great to see everyone coming together to raise money for a very special group of people and a wonderful cause. I hope to see you at the meeting this Thursday night.

And remember, this meeting just isn’t for returning members; if you’re interested in joining CAST, this is the perfect opportunity for you to come and see what we’re all about. This meeting will give you a taste of what is to come, you’ll see our dedication to the organization as well as our excitement about working together to have a successful and fun night. In our organization, we have space for everyone, so come on out and help us spread community theatre to the Lehigh Valley!

See you there!
