The first meeting of 2011 for The Benefit El Salvador Project went smoothly and much was accomplished in that short 1.5 hour gathering. Here is a short summary of the topics covered:
- New partnership with Bucks4Books on 200 S. between University Street and 1300 E.
- New blog and facebook page
- A group of University of Utah students will be helping us create and update documents as part of a service-learning class requirement. Thanks for the help!
- Volunteers needed for tabling, class announcements, and the silent auction event
- Silent Auction:
Date: April 9th
Possible location nailed down: 15th and 15th gallery
Food/beverage ideas anyone?
15 volunteers to begin soliciting donations for the raffle and silent auction (form letter coming soon)
Ideal goal is 3 items per volunteer
So, that was the gist of the first meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for February 14, 2011 at 7:30 PM in the Downtown City Library - Conference room 1. Hope to see you all there!
