Tagg Team Captain, Gilford Letter to the Editor of Laconia Daily Sun
This year will be memorable for many reasons. For me and others volunteering for the GLR Children’s Auction, we recognize the need to continue essential programs serving local families will be greater than ever. We’re up for the Community Challenge!
At the start of 2020, Tagg Team was in high gear collecting donations for our 7th Pub Mania Gift Card Gala. Our team was all set to sponsor our bingo event when our plans abruptly changed. Fast forward and we've organized over $5,000 in donations into an online bidding event. We invite community residents to participate by visiting the Facebook page “Patrick’s Pub Mania”.
During the week of August 24, our Gift Card Gala will accept bids on Lake Winnipesaukee original artwork, an overnight stay at Mill Falls at the Lake and many gift cards for restaurants and local stores. High bidders on Friday, August 28 at 6 pm will win the final packages. Every high bidder will receive a 10% discount card, valid on their entire non-consigned purchase at Gilford Country Store, Nahamsha Gifts in Meredith or Live Love Lake in Wolfeboro. I want to thank all community-minded businesses that continue to support our efforts.
Let’s all come together to be part of the Plus $1 goal for the Children’s Auction “It’s for the Kids! Community Challenge.” Call me at 603-493-9524 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
