Request for Donations

WGPO Members – Please donate to 2018 WGPO Word Cup – Auction items needed

In addition to Competitive Scrabble, the 2018 WGPO Word Cup event in Burbank will feature many FABULOUS items available for purchase or to win. Plan to purchase raffle tickets, bid for silent auction items and purchase some directly. Our goal is to raise $1400 to add to prize money and help offset Word Cup 8 overhead costs. Please add your contribution to those we have promised thus far.

Mike Stevens has again donated one of his specialty Scrabble Boards, and Ruth Hamilton is creating a commemorative afghan. These will be featured raffle items. An assortment of more wonderful items for the silent auction or to purchase directly include:

  • Select Sonoma wines
  • Recycled Scrabble creations: coaster sets, trivets and surprises
  • Pillow case sets
  • Scrabble tile bags in assorted decorative fabrics – direct sale
  • Fleece bags for your Scrabble racks
  • Tote bags
  • Scrabble jewelry

Help us meet our ambitious goal. Add your own hand-crafted or store-bought, new or lightly used items to our store of treasures. Still needed:

  • Books – related to Scrabble or not
  • Objet d’art
  • Chocolates, cheeses, tempting consumables
  • Funky white elephants or practical stuff 
  • Wondrous articles beyond our imagination.

Contact any member of the WGPO Fundraising Committee with questions or notice of your intended donations. Thanks so much!
