The Fundraiser will take place on Sat either at Chastain Park in one of their shelters or at a friends house within blocks of the venue. My preference would be in the Park but it will require someone going up early, and people taking shifts to watch over and help set up the goods. If we choose this option we could cook, eat or whatever prior to the show.
I am starting a list of things that will be included in the Fundraiser and will add to it as time permits. believe it or not I am still sorting!
We have CDs LOTS of them, all kinds of music.
Some T shirts
Mayberry RFD games and videos - very dear to Bill , mayor of Mayberryetta.
We have a very special hand tooled leather guitar strap with "Willie" tooled into it. I have not found out the origin of this strap so far . If anybody knows let me know.
Some CDs signed to Bill from the artist.
DVDs
Beatles items, CDs etc.
Some Collectible Magazines from the 70s.

We will do a silent auction on the special items and just donations for the CDs, DVDs and things of that nature. I don't want to make it too complicated.

Hey GramJam, Thanks for updating everybody. It's looking like we will need to go with the picnic pavilion in Chastain Park for the Pre-show gathering. I had scoped out a place earlier with plenty of tables that is covered that should work perfectly. We need to find out when the park opens so we can be there right when it opens and reserve it for our group. I would think about 8 or 9 am. Of course after the show on Friday night not many of us will be bright eyed and bushy tailed at that time in morning. But I'm sure we can find some kind morning people who woul be willing to help us out with this. Let us know if you'd like to volunteer!

I can help Saturday morning May have to leave to shuttle folks from the hotel to the venue but can certainly get up early and do the set up stuff, take shifts with the tables, etc.

Yay Helen and from what I remember you are not a morning person! Thanks so much I'm sure you will have some company to join you and help reserve and set up the picnic area. What a trooper!

I'm usually up with the chickens (although I don't get out of bed unless something is happening), and will be glad to help out with whatever is needed....

Thanks for the updates, Pat. I'll be there.

For those of you arriving early, we'll be doing another benefit for Bill on Thursday at Smith's Olde Bar. I'll be at BOTH! Anything we can do for these sweet children, I'm all for it!

Thanks for all the volunteers of help. Since we will have access to grills we need to decide if we want to try to grill.........hamburgers or hotdogs maybe. Most of us will be coming in from out of town so we wouldn't really be able to have a pot luck. Would it be tacky to charge a little something to pay for the food and supplies? Let me know your thoughts

Barb, keep in mind that the HTN crew will have to be at the venue pretty early, so maybe one of us can help relieve people at the picnic pavilion from time to time. Since the HTN booth will already be somewhat "set up" from Friday, we won't have as much to do on Saturday, and I'm sure we would love to help in any way we can.

However, I doubt we'll be there at 8 or 9 AM! With all the late night stuff on Friday, I can't promise that. We should be there well before the show, though.

Thanks for all your efforts for Ben and Hannah!

Rather than a charge, just call it a donation to help cover costs. Lots of generous folks around here (for sure!).

I posted this on the "rollcall" thread. It's still two weeks, I know.

I have a question, and maybe I am missing the obvious. Would the pavillion at the park that is being talked about for the Ben and Hannah fundraiser, and that event be combined with the pre-show peach party on this thread?

Is the park an appropriate place for a pre-show party by the likes of this bunch or will Bluedad need to rob another SC bank just for bail money?

At times like this, I feel the same way, Gary! Sure wish I could be there, but can't do JFD and this.

Yeah, the idea is to have a pre-show party at the park that will double as a fundraiser (correct me if I'm wrong).

Should be able to cover the pre-party and the fundraiser all at once! May have to be discreet about the drinking, OR just have Bluedad rob the bank for bail.
