Alpheus Concert to Raise Money for Big Brothers Big Sisters 2010August 27th, 2010 by Lee Eldridge
I know I’ve been away, but my schedule will be back to normal soon. It’s been a hectic summer. Writing this today because I need your help, especially if you live in the Lawrence area.
We organize two concerts each year, and have just completed our first event in Hutchinson for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Reno County with great success. The crowd was awesome. The sponsors stepped up to the plate and really delivered. We raised more than $6,000 when you include in-kind donations. A very successful event.
Now we’re just a couple weeks away from our second concert — this time for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Douglas County. The concert will be at the Granada on Saturday, September 18th. We need your help to make this a great event as well.
We’re a bit behind on where we had hoped to be for sponsors this year. Here’s a link to our sponsorship package. It’s not too late to help sponsor the event!
We had a sponsor donate a free vacation at our Hutchinson event, and it generated almost $500 in additional donations. Got something we can raffle? Email me here.
Promotions and Attendance
Lots of ways to help us promote the event. Post the event to your facebook and twitter accounts. (You can visit the Alpheus facebook page here and provide a link to the event, or invite your friends to the event.) Hang flyers at work (here’s a flyer for you to print). Help to organize a group of people to attend. Do you belong to a networking group? A social group? Maybe you can organize your fellow employees to attend?
If nothing else, just grab a spouse or friend and come on out. Alpheus plays a lot of great music from the ’70s and ’80s including the Cars, Rick Springfield, KC and the Sunshine Band, Van Halen, Wild Cherry, Pink, Journey, Monkees, Romantics, Green Day, Neil Diamond, Talking Heads and much more. Hope to see you there!
