Sip, Friends & Fundraising Needs You!


The upcoming “Sips, Friends & Fundraising” wine and beer tasting event needs your help!

We are asking that Wildcat community members consider soliciting a donation from a business with which you have a relationship, or (if solicitation is not something you are comfortable with) making a personal donation to the “Sips, Friends & Fundraising” Raffle.   We have attached a solicitation letter for you to present to businesses.   The wine and beer tasting fundraiser will be a great adult only event.  It will be a wonderful night out where parents, friends and neighbors can relax and have a conversation while sipping wines and brews and snacking on a variety of appetizers.  Most importantly, you can do all of this while supporting the Windsor school PTA.


Some examples of great donations and contributions would be gift cards to local restaurants and entertainment venues, tickets to a sporting event, or gift cards to stores that your kids may enjoy shopping at.   Small toys or related items grouped into a gift basket would also be a wonderful contribution.   Themed gift basket donation is a great idea; examples would be a sports basket,  girl’s accessories, seasonal, dinner and movie, or use your own creative idea!  Are you in direct sales?  Perhaps you’d like to assemble a basket of your products and include a business card.


Thank you so much for your help!  Together we can make “Sips, Friends & Fundraising” a smashing success!   All funds raised for this event go directly to the Windsor PTA and the children that benefit from the multitude of programs the PTA sponsors at Windsor School.
