I had a GREAT vnsf day!
First, I picked up the VNSF mail and we got a lot of money! This doesn’t always happen. First, we have an upcoming event (that you should go to if you can — the Long Restaurant Opening). I was happy to see so many registrations. Yay! There’s still space, so go online and register now. Second, we got a bunch of microsoft giving and matching from last year’s benefit event and giving campaign. Double YAY!! Money coming into the organization is always a good feeling. Big, huge thank you to all the VNSF donors and supporters. In particular, those of you who do payroll deduction — that level of committment to our organization is amazing and much appreciated.
Second, I found an event planner!! I’m so excited. I posted on volunteermatch.com for some positions on my Fundraising Committee and I got 3 responses. I scheduled a meeting with 2 and met one of them this evening. She’s energetic, passionate, and seems reliable. She’s volunteered before, she’s run clubs and organizations and she’s passionate about event planning. O… I could barely contain my excitement! I’m SO looking forward to working with her. I have had trouble recruiting for my committee before but I have high hopes for my new recruit. I’m so jazzed. It’s nice when you’re recruiting and you find that perfect fit. It’s exciting!! Yay yay yay… what a good day!
