To help local non-profit organizations raise funds while giving local Crafters, Direct Sale Reps and Small Businesses a place to showcase their products and/or services at a reasonable cost.
Admission to all of our events will be FREE, starting in 2014. Yet ‘Pre-Admission Tickets’ will be available for $3.00 to receive 40 Displayer Raffle Tickets at the event! Pre-Admission Tickets must be purchased by the Friday before the event. Only ONE Pre-Admission Ticket per person will be honored.
Craft Vendor Basket Events are a twist on the traditional Basket Parties & Craft Vendor Events by combing the two. Their will be Crafters, Vendors of all sorts, Concessions, Bake Sale and Multiple Basket Raffles. Some of the Basket Raffles will benefit both the Non-Profit being sponsored and JSPA Sales Bonanza. Some will just benefit the Non-Profit being sponsored at that event and yes there will be at least one basket benefiting JSPA Sales Bonanza.
All events are held on Saturdays and run from 9a to 3p.
Cost? You want to know how much the Raffle Tickets will cost. ~ The Displayer Raffle Tickets will be 20 for $3. ~ JSPA Sales Bonanza Basket Raffle will be 3 for $1 or 18 for $2. ~ The cost of the Non-Profits Raffle is determined by the Non-Profit. We will post the price of their Raffle Drawing Tickets under the event section of our website and also on our facebook event page once we are notified of said cost by the non-profit for that event. We, the Board of Directors, do not feel it is right for us to set the price they should charge for their raffle tickets.
Each Displayer will have a Gift Basket/Item on their table for the Displayer Gift Basket Raffle. Thus if you want to enter to win one of the Displayers Gift Baskets/Item, you need to purchase ‘Displayer Raffle Tickets’ (20 for $3). Remember ‘Pre-Admission Tickets’ get you 40 Displayer Raffle Tickets for $3. Likewise if you want to enter to win any of the other Gift Baskets being chanced off, you’d need to purchase a ticket to win the Gift Basket/Item.
Concessions and Bake Sale
The Sponsored Event Non-Profit will provide Concessions and a Bake Sale. There will be several tables set aside for you to sit and eat. We will even have several magazines for you to enjoy while waiting on your friend or loved on to finish shopping. Yes Ladies, we will also have men’s magazines so you are welcome to bring them along. lol … We just ask that you do not remove these magazines so we can have them available at the next event for others to enjoy.
We will post the Non-Profits Concession Menu on the facebook event page once it is received. No worries if you are not on facebook as it is open to the public for all to see.
Winning Tickets will be drawn beginning at 3pm starting with the Displayer Baskets, then the Non-Profits Baskets and finally JSPA’s Basket. All winners will be notified by phone that day. If possible, we ask you return to pick them up that day. But don’t fear, arrangements can be made for pickup at a later date.
The non-profit is not charged to set-up and participate. The non-profit must provide their own volunteers to collect the money at the door, sell the concessions/ bake sale and also sell any raffle or 50/50 tickets. 100% of the proceeds from the concessions, bake sale and any small games of chance held by the non-profit go to the Non-Profit. 50% of the Pre-Admission Tickets and the Displayer Raffle Tickets also goes to the Non-Profit sponsored at that event. The other 50% is used by JSPA Sales Bonanza to off-set the cost of the Pre-Admission Tickets and the cost of the Raffle Tickets.
The Non-Profit must post the event on their website, facebook page and in any emails/ newsletters they send out after being chosen as a benefactor for an event. Non-Profits are also given the opportunity to sell Pre-Admission Tickets to boost the number of attendees and raise more money.
Price per display table is determined by the cost of the hall and advertising. Then divided by the number of display tables. We do not set-up these events to profit from the tables fees and every JSPA Sales Bonanza Board Member pays the exact same price to setup as all other displayers. The only favoritism shown to JSPA Sales Bonanza Board Members is that they are given the first opportunity to participate in each event for their given craft and/or direct sale company.
We feature each displayer whom meets an event deadline for two months on our website, the month before and the month of the event. Plus we also take several pics of their display to post in an album on our facebook page with all their business contact information. So not only are our displayers able to showcase their wares at the event, we provide a place for them to showcase their wares thru our facebook page and website.
We also offer at no additional cost the following end of the year Small Business Saturday Online Event and Cyber Monday Online Event where they may feature their products/services. These events are advertised thru facebook to boost attendance and participation.
Win, Win for All Involved.
