Questions and Answers for the Soirée Committee
|New Date||Sunday, September 20; Tony has already booked the DB Center.|
|Glasses||Glasses with original date are already here; we are not going to order new glasses. We think these will be “collectables!”|
|Banner||Rick will get the 3 brand new, never used banners updated with the new date.|
|Aprons||We aren’t sure if the aprons are finished. If they are finished, we will leave them; if they aren’t finished, we will order them without a date.|
|Program||The date deadline will not be extended. There are still a few potential ads out there. Please get them in ASAP/deadline is April 3. We are hoping that we can print the program cover without the date -- it would just say “27th Wine Soiree.” Kathleen and Pearl are working on this.
Kathleen will notify people who bought ads that the new date is September 20th. She will arrange to get the ad buyers their tickets.
|Save the Dates||Save the Dates will be updated and then resent. New posters will be made. Rick will work on this.|
|Donations||MaryKay and Nancy are working on the donations. MK has already looked at them to see which ones will expire before September. We will decide what to do as soon as the fog (AKA Covid-19) lifts.
If you are still soliciting for donations, keep in mind that the Soiree will be in September and we will want an expiration date to be (at least) January of 2021.
|Tickets||Please keep any tickets that you were issued. When we have our (second) kickoff meeting, we will give them to Cindee Quan.
Yes, we are having new tickets printed with the correct date. They will be a new color. A few of us have sold tickets; those tickets will be replaced with the new (different color) tickets.
|Restaurants||Tony has contacted the restaurants. Eight of them have already recommitted to September 20th -- yeah Tony!|
|Beer||Susan has contacted the beer vender; they want to participate but need to see if it can make it work with the LA County Fair scheduled events that they already have.|
|Insurance||Tony has worked with John Forbing (State Farm) to make sure our insurance will be in force through September.|
|Roger and Rachel Kirk’s Vacay||We heard that the Kirk’s have a vacation planned that includes September 20th and that they have worked a deal with Rosette that she is in charge of the Book Auction on the day of the event.|
|Pourers||Bob has notified the pourers.|
|Wine Raiser Party||Yes of course there will be a Wine Raiser Party. Date TBD.|
|Most Important||Please know we are moving forward and Rick still says, “This will be the best/greatest Soiree ever.”|
