NWFRAGFEST FINAL TALLY!! WE DID IT!!!

Recommended Posts

Thanks again vendors, volunteers, members!! You all made this event a success! 

Final tally going to Tanks for Teachers is 2963.62!!

 

:YayWave:

Sure we could have probably just gotten by with donations and raffles and no frag show but we wanted to do something fun, positive , and bring the community together! Thank you all who came and participated!!

 

:clap:

I will post up what we end up doing for The Boys and Girls Club!

Below is the breakdown of costs and without donations of time, money and supplies it wouldn't be possible!!!

:clap:Huge, huge, huge thanks to those that volunteered so many hours of their valuable time. 

Truly grateful for all the hard work to make this possible.  Heck, I was exhausted just being a visitor to the swap.  It took a while to get all the spoils dipped and put away.  And that's really nothing compared to what the volunteers did. 

Word was, many were up in the wee hours of the morning and stuck around pretty late to take it all down.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

 

It was a special event in many ways.  Most of us scored a ton of nice frags, made trades, good conversation, ate good food.... And learned allot more about sustainability.  Which was awesome by the way.  RESEPECT to the Aussie coral and fishery.  Gonna go get me some scolies!!  :fingerscrossed:

We were really sad to have missed it. Had it on our schedule since it was announced but then our schedule changed and we had to be up north this weekend. Killed me seeing the reminders and posts come up on my phone.

I am continually blown away by the club and how everyone can come together to enjoy a common passion. And to include some amazing vendors and clubs from afar just made it that much more amazing . It was so great to get to talk to everyone and spend the day together for a great cause. Already planning the next one

Excellent turnout and fantastic success! :mermaid:

Am I reading this correctly - the Boys and Girls club donated $1000? That seems weird; I must be misinterpreting something.

Also confusing is the value of the raffle prizes being tallied as income. I don’t get that part at all.

I understand now. We donated $1000 to the Boys & Girls Club, not the other way around, and the donated prizes are not tallied in, just listed here (also goes for donated supplies). I’ll leave my questions in this reply with a strike through, in case others wonder the same things and don’t want to sound dumb asking. I’ll take the hit!

I do remember we didn’t consider the guest speaker an event-specific expense, since we would’ve otherwise paid to have a guest speaker at a regular club meeting. Just in case anyone wonders about that.

Completely legit questions as you were not sitting at our kitchen table when I put this together . The boys and girls club did not necessarily donate 1000$ to us. But they did give us a significant discounted price on the venue because Jim is a bad [language filter] . We would have had to pay that if he didn’t get us amazing deal

 

And yeah on the rest of the donations it’s not tallied in but it’s good to keep track thanks for throwing all that out though. my brain can be confusing first thing in the morning

Yes Cherany your memory is correct for the guest speaker. We have in the budget to do one nationally known speaker at least once a year so the idea was to combine that with the frag show to make sure we got great attendance.

 

The Boys and Girls club was originally going to charge us more than a 1000 dollars for all that space as the going rate is by room and per hour.  Jim worked his magic and let them know we were going to use the money to get them a new tank and more corals since they lost almost everything with inclement weather, so they gave it to us for free and all we needed to pay was 180 for the staff that needed to come.

So a donation in kind?

Thanks for putting this together Sirena. You do so much for the club it’s crazy. Just know that it goes noticed and greatly appreciated. You have some big time karmic payback headed your way (in a good way of course). Sorry I didn’t get to see more of you and the rest of the club yesterday but all good fun!

Yep it’s Jim. He also stuck around afterwards to do a water change on the current tank with Roy - guy never stopped yesterday!

Great Job on the salsas Scott - if I hadn’t been so busy I might not have left the food table - that stuff was killer. Thanks!

Nope, looks like I misunderstood again.

Ahhh, gotcha. We valued their discounted/donated space at $1000.

For those playing along at home, no donation of $1000 cash went in either direction.
