The Holiday Luncheon is Coming Up and You Can Help Make it a Success

The WBN Holiday Scholarship fund raising luncheon will be held on Friday, December 6th at Thanksgiving Point. Mark it on your calendars! This is a super fun event that you won’t want to miss. Every year 150 or so local women business leaders gather to celebrate the Christmas season and raise money for a good cause. Included in the program is a silent auction with amazing gifts. It’s a great way to do your holiday shopping while at the same time helping us acquire the funds to provide two scholarships for women who are pursuing business-related degrees at BYU and UVU.

We hope you’ll join us for this wonderful event. If you want to contribute additionally, here are two ways you can participate (and at the same time get some recognition for your business with a group of prime local customers):

Become a table sponsor. Fifteen to twenty local businesses sponsor individual tables for the luncheon. Sponsors provide gifts for each person at a table, plus an extra gift to be used as a door prize—nine gifts total. In order to keep the quality of the gifts consistent, we ask that they be valued at a minimum of $25 per gift, and that the same type of gift be provided for each person at the table. This is a great way to promote your organization (the gifts don’t necessarily have to be a product produced by your business, but you may include information about what you do). If you’re interested in becoming a table sponsor for this year’s event, please contact Kathy Rowe at 801-335-5852 or via email, kathy.rowe@gmail.com. Opportunities for sponsorship are limited, and are available on a first-come, first served basis.

Donate a gift for our silent auction. Our silent auction has grown more successful every year. Proceeds from the auction go directly to the scholarship fund. We ask that gifts have a minimum value of $50. We will also ask that you provide an electronic copy of your organization’s logo (we can help with this if necessary), and that you provide a description of the gift you’re giving. We’ve had a wide range of gifts in the past, which makes the auction much more appealing. Professional services are always popular with our members, so consider that donation as an option if that’s something you provide. If you have a gift that you would like to donate, please contact Kathy Rowe at 801-335-5852 or via email, kathy.rowe@gmail.com.
