Set the Tables – Amazing Gifts for You, Fundraising for KMA Grants and Scholarships
A tradition many years in the making, it is time once again to Set the Tables and set the stage for a great KMA Banquet and Benefit Auction. There are many ways to get involved – pick the one (or more!) that fits best for you:
Set the Tables! First impressions are a must! We need your help ‘Setting the Tables’ for a spectacular Banquet and Benefit! Here is what is needed:
Your museum chooses a theme – maybe an exhibit or event, maybe a holiday or favorite food or drink – to showcase by putting together a table topper and place settings. As a host, be sure to include 8 small individual gifts for guests sitting at your table, in addition to a larger centerpiece. Bring the materials to the conference and set up your table before the Banquet. KMA will sell seat tickets for the privilege of sitting at one of the specially decorated tables, and the centerpiece will be raffled. You will be providing an elegant and/or fun atmosphere for the Banquet and Benefit Auction table guests, showing off your creative skills, and helping your museum profession!
Need ideas? Start here.
Take a Seat! Purchase a seat at one of the decorated tables for a $10 donation per person at the Banquet. With your Take a Seat! ticket, you enjoy a table favor provided by the museum host and you are contributing to the KMA Scholarship Fund. Any KMA individual member can apply for a scholarship! Seating is limited to 8 per table and the number of tables for ‘Set the Tables’ is limited.
I Want That! Purchase one ticket (or many!) for the ‘Set the Tables’centerpiece raffle that will be held at the conclusion of the Banquet. Tickets are $10 each.
Tickets for Take a Seat! and I Want That! are sold before the Banquet; see Marla Day at the conference.
