Be a Homecoming Champ!

Homecoming-BonnieJennieTo make our 4th Annual Homecoming the grand success we plan, we need your help as a member, donor and guest!  Please save the date AND invite a friend or two to join you.

In grand spirit, our dedicated Table Captains fill tables of 10.  We bet you can raise your own spirit and bring along a friend or two as well.  It’s as simple as this:

Q: Are you a member of a circle who plans to attend Homecoming with your circle members?
A: Make a ‘member-pact’ to each bring along one guest.

Q: Are you a member’s guest, who really enjoyed this event in the past?
A: Make a guest-pact’ and invite another couple to join your Table Captain’s table.

Q: Are you a repeat guest, who loves Homecoming and is passionate about Seattle Milk Fund’s work?  Does it thrill you to remove barriers for low income parents and provide college educations that lift families out of poverty?
A: Make a ‘Loyal-guest-pact’ and branch out – become a Table Captain of your own and invite guests to help you fill your own table this year.

Together, our ‘pacts’ can truly make an im-pact and fill the room with dedicated people, being the change they want to see in the world.

Remember how good it feels when you raise your paddle, or win that bid, or simply laugh and enjoy each others company all in the spirit of supporting a family in need?  Now, think how good it will feel for your friend, when you open the doors for them to participate in Homecoming.  You are giving them the gift to participate in something really grand – decreasing the likelihood a child lives in poverty!  What a gift you can give to another!!  You can make a life changing moment for a friend or neighbor – who in turn can make a life changing moment for a family in need.  Giving feels good!  Give those you know a gift by inviting your friends to participate!

By being a guest, you may be supporting a single mom’s journey to supporting her family and providing stable futures through a college degree and her new ability to earn a livable wage.  Together, we are breaking the cycle of poverty for her family.  Together, we are changing the world, one child, one parent and one family at a time, simply by joining us at Homecoming and giving one gift at a time!

So Save the Date, Make a Reservation, Give a Gift and Be the Change!  Registration open no later than early fall!
