Our OOCC Pao Pao 9 man race is just around the corner and in addition to being a great race, it’s our club’s biggest FUNdraiser of the year. And the best part is that YOU CAN HELP!!!!!

We need items for our silent auction. Gift certificates (restaurants, movies, retail stores, etc.), Services such as sports massage, oil change, etc., Merchandise (paddles, bikes, SUP’s, jewelry, etc.) The places where you eat, where you get your hair and nails done, where you shop are all great places to target. You can go to retailers in your neighborhood or even where you shop online. All you have to do is ask. It’s great exposure for those who donate and we are a 501(c) nonprofit organization, so it’s a great tax deduction as well.

If everyone gets at least 1 donation, we can have an amazing silent auction and raffle! Please try to obtain some big name items. Things that other paddlers would want to win (paddles, Sup, Paddle gear/clothing).

HERE is a letter for your use in obtaining donations. Amy Swain is coordinating the raffle. Feel free to contact her if you have any questions, swainamy@me.com, (760)525-2053.

And when you get a commitment from donors, let Amy know right away so we can include them in our pre-race publicity. Please get items to Amy as soon as you have them so our raffle team has time to organize all donations.
Mahalo for your participation!
