As I announced at the GCO Summer Luncheon, I am forming a fundraising committee that will have representatives from all the areas Listed at the end of this post.

I plan for us to meet in a central location (most likely Warner Robins) about once a quarter on a Saturday to discuss fundraising efforts and ideas plus eat some chow and BS a bit. All other communication will be via email or phone. Each FO (Fundraising Operator) will be responsible for contacting businesses in their area to request and pick up donations as well as hand deliver Letters of Appreciation following an event. No experience is needed, I will train anyone who wants to give it a shot. Folks with some sort of sales background/experience make excellent fundraisers since basically what we are doing is selling the donor on GCO. The main requirement is enthusiasm. FO's will also assist with fundraising ops at events such as displaying auction items, recording bid information, selling raffle tickets, running a fundraising game and other assorted duties. There will be times when you will go weeks without really doing much and times when it seems you don't have enough time to do all you want to do. That is where having a committee of fundraisers will come in. We will back each other up and work as a team to meat our goals.

If that sounds like fun to you then you are as deranged as I am and should fit in well. If you want to give it a shot then PLEASE, let me know and send me your Name, address, phone number (home and cell if possible) and email and area you wish to represent, and I will add you to the list.
