View Full Version : Fun fundraiser this weekend!

How are everyone's parties going?

I do an annual fundraiser for a Relay for Life team (the two team captains lost a friend to breast cancer in 2010 - she was in her twenties!), and the party was yesterday. So nice to get together with them!

The captains had 6 orders already when they walked in the door, but there were a lot of conflicts and only three other guests showed up in person, so we had 5 more orders at the party. All together, it's a great fundraiser with 11 orders and well over $500 in sales, plus I expect a few more orders to come in as well.

Plus, because of the 6 order requirement ending June 30, the mother of one of the hostesses is having a book party closing in early June!

And another guest who had never seen Silpada before fell in love and is hosting a "jewels by the pool" party in August. We set the date already so she is on my list and ready to roll!

The other guest is a frequent customer and has been successful getting orders for this fundraiser in the past, so I expect to hear from her today or tomorrow. Last time she had 4 more orders.

Would love to hear what is exciting in your business today!
