Many thanks to those of you who came out to one or more of the Creative Treats Club September 2019 workshops in which we assembled the 111 boxes and cards that were used in the ‘Suspended Surprises’. Purchasing these boxes and coordinating cards were one of the ways (along with the more traditional silent auction and raffle) that attendees at the September 21st, 2019 Arden’s Army fundraiser event could support 2-year-old Arden and her family as she entered her second year of cancer treatments. The boxes were $20 each and contained a tiny sweet treat. All boxes had a corresponding card, many of which contained gift certificates or prizes worth up to $100.
Tasty Treats and Suspended Surprises
In addition to the Suspended Surprises, Creative Treats Club also contributed lots of home-made baking. The baking was placed in cute packages. Some packages were grouped together into two gift baskets which were included as Suspended Surprises prizes. Two more cookie-filled gift baskets were donated into the Silent Auction along with a certificate for a workshop (card making or baking) at either the winner’s or my home. The rest of the baking sold quickly, especially with Joanne bringing some directly to tables on a serving tray.
