December 3rd we will be holding our fourth annual Christmas party for those over fifty and living with HIV. I am currently starting the process of soliciting gifts and donations to make this party as big a success as the last one. We are expecting around 125 attendees this year and that means we need gifts for 125 gift bags, gift certificates and theater tickets for more people than we have had in the past. I am looking for people to help me solicit the local community for assistance. We will be trying to raise about $2500. over and above the gifts we are able to solicit and collect. If you would be willing to help with any of these solicitations please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 832-396-4475 for text or voice. I need people that are not afraid to ask, surprisingly the community has given me very few rejections in the three years I have done this. One of the items I have not had any luck soliciting is a prize for the Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest, ideas?
