The PerryFest Committee is accepting donations for the 2019 PerryFest and Silent Auction. A contribution that is very much appreciated is the donation of a basket (or container of choice) filled with goodies of the donor’s choosing for the silent auction. Items do not have to be big or elaborate, just pick a theme (i.e. sports, kid’s games, school supplies, etc.) and purchase a few theme-related items. Arrange the items in a basket or theme-based container and wrap in clear cellophane.
This is a great way to promote a business or organization. Be sure to include a business card (or a name) with donations. Other acceptable donations may include gently used items (no clothing) leftover from a yard/estate sale, a gas card or gift certificate, or re-gift an item. The possibilities are endless.
Contributions and support from residents, organizations and businesses help ensure the continuation and success of the annual PerryFest and fireworks display. This year’s PerryFest is a one-day event to be held on Saturday, Sept. 21. Donations may be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at Perry City Hall, 203 W. Polly St. in Perry, or call (517) 625-6155, ext. 235.
