The Wizard of Oz Gala

I signed up to be a part of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz Gala but forgot to make my post live today! So I am a little late, nothing new to those that know me!! Twyla and Linsey have posted the most amazing photos on their blog. Please visit them to see all the amazing WofOz goodness!

I am so excited to post about this event that is so close to my heart and happens to be Wizard of Oz Themed!!

Oh NO! Im late with this post! I wanted to announce a really awesome Wizard of Oz themed event that we are doing in San Diego on March 20, 2010. Its going to be amazing and so much fun! If you are a crafter, you will be dying to join us!

Here are the details:
Royalty Over the Rainbow, A Inspirational Retreat for Charity .

This event is going to be all about INSPIRATION and REWARD. The theme as you might have guessed is based on the Wizard of Oz. You will be “following the yellow brick road” and finding many treasures. You might find courage, through your efforts to fundraise, and you might find your heart as you spend 2 days with wonderful charitable people being rewarded for your efforts, and you might find your brain! Ha ha! I know I put mine here somewhere! Or you just might find your way home in a beautiful Wizard of Oz inspired project created for you by 5 Celebrity Designers all donating their time and creativity to reward you for selflessly giving.

We have not finalized all of the details but here is what we have so far:

Date: March 20, 2010 9am till March 21, 6pm
Location: San Dieguito Boys & Girls Club Solana Beach Branch
The Charities: Cancer Coping Center and San Dieguito Boys & Girls Club Solana Beach Branch

We are only taking 54 participants for this event.
This event is going to sell out and you do not want to miss it!
Registration opens to the public at 8 am October 1, 2009

Now what do you have to do to attend? The registration fee is set at $100 or two payments of $55. You are required to raise a minimum of $500 to attend.

Let me break it down for you:

You will have 5 months and 20 days (171 days) to raise this money and we will help you! There are a ton of ideas on the website but if you choose to, you can save the money yourself. You only need to save $3 a day or $21 a week to reach this goal. What could you cut out of your life that costs you that amount? Make the commitment and make a huge difference in the life of someone less fortunate than you.

Ask 10 people for $25 that’s $250 your half way there.
Host a garage sale- push your stuff out your door and watch the donations add up.
Give up coffee shop coffee!!! Bring your own coffee to work… this will get you there fast!

I know times are hard, this economy is hitting us all, believe me, I know. Now is the time that we need to give a little more. Those people that needed help before, need help even more now. They have lost jobs, lost homes, dignity, the list goes on.

If we band together like the Dorothy, The Tin Man, The Scarecrow and The Cowardly Lion together we can reach a goal of raising $30,000 for these very worthy charities.

I am so excited for those who are able to be a part of this momentous event!
