Only 4 Krewe members have signed up to volunteer at AHE 😢. Please give some of your time to help us have a terrific charity event. Please look under Halloween Bash and see the attached spreadsheet for available jobs and timeslots for where you would like to help throughout the AHE evening. Please just write the job and timeslot in the comments on the Forum so that others will know you've taken the slot. Let me know if you have any questions! Please keep pushing the tickets, we're up to 132 on Eventbrite !!

Greetings Krewe! Time to do your part as a member of this Krewe!! Eventbrite shows we've sold 128 tickets!! Keep pushing those sales! For those who received paper tickets to sell, please send me an update on what you've sold. I must give final numbers to Carrabbas on Monday prior to the event. We only have a total of 34 auction items, which will equate to fewer once the baskets are put together. If you can't get a donation, put together a small basket yourself as a donation to the fundraiser. This is our big money maker. We need the forms as soon as possible so we can start preparing the poster for all sponsors as well as the bid sheets. If you are going to put your auction items into a basket yourself, thank you!! But please still send me all the details so that I can start working on the Bid Sheet. Looking forward to an amazing event!! Please also sign up on the Volunteer Sheet under Halloween Bash. Thank you all for doing your part. Mad Magnolia

Good morning! If you have any Auction Items and would like to bring them to the social, please do!! There is still time to get one or perhaps build one yourself to donate it. I will not be there but my deputy Tracey (Salty Britches) will get them from you. We raised over $20k last year and a huge part comes from our auction items so please do your part. Mad Magnolia

Greetings Krewe! We're only 19 days from our 2nd Annual All Hallows' Eve Charity! Eventbrite shows we've sold 87 tickets!! Keep pushing those sales! For those who received paper tickets to sell, please send me an update on what you've sold. I have to give final numbers to Carrabbas on Monday prior to the event. I know many if you have mentioned that you have secured Auction items, but I have not received ANY sponsorship forms yet. We need the forms as soon as possible so we can start preparing the poster for all sponsors. If you are going to put your auction item together yourself, thank you!! But please still send me all the details so that I can start working on the Bid Sheet. Looking forward to an amazing event!! Thank you all for doing your part. Mad Magnolia

If you are a member of this Krewe there is no excuse for you not to have made your donation for your ticket to the only other fundraising event we do every year. We have only sold 56 on Event Brite so far and I don't see a lot of familiar names. I would also like to hear from more of you that you've secured some great Silent Auction items. This is where we can really build our treasure chest! Please Core Members, it's part of your responsibility to give your time, and this is an opportunity to do exactly that. i need these items NLT October 19th so that we can build the baskets. Respectfully, Mad Magnolia

So far, we are at 40 tickets sold through Eventbrite. The printer is working on getting our posters and paper tickets to us ASAP. Once we have them in hand, I will let everyone know. If you specifically want paper tickets, please let me know how many so that I get them to your right away. In the meantime, please continue to point folks to Eventbrite to secure their tickets. Remember that we are not "selling tickets" so please use the phrase "for a donation". Sarah (Mad Magnolia)

Ahoy Krewe members! It’s time for ALL members to get out there and start digging into the coffers of your friends and establishments that you frequent for Silent Auction items. If there is someone you’ve always reached out to, please post it here so that we aren’t hitting them up more than once. Phyllis and I will be keeping a running spreadsheet of who has been approached, if you have any questions. When soliciting donations, keep in mind we are approaching the company as a charity and a professional approach will likely produce better results. I think for your first time in their door seeking a donation or auction item, a Krewe shirt and business card is going to be taken more seriously than a single pirate in garb. If you’ve worked with this potential sponsor in the past, then garb is perfectly appropriate. If you are interested in getting a Krewe shirt, please let me know. They only cost $20. The attached AHE Sponsor Form file is VERY important for you to use when you are out there working on the behalf of the Krewe. Every sponsor must complete this form for us to provide thank you notes as well as tax forms. Provide completed forms to Sarah or Phyllis. I have already secured table sponsors from Nissan of St Augustine, Beach Haven Investment Group, Old Coast Homes of St Augustine, and Flourish Wealth Advisors. Sarah (Mad Magnolia)

Thank you to the members who came out to support the AHE Fundraiser! Between Saturday and Sunday our Jell-O shot fundraiser brought in $954.00 towards our upcoming Fall Charity Event!! Ann O'Malleys also set it up for patrons to use their credit card so maybe we'll pass the $1000 mark! GREAT JOB by all!!

I wanted to share some tools I used last year in my pursuit of sponsors/silent auction items for the inaugural AHE. Please tweak the letter (email) to suit your particular situation and/or personality. The brochure is one that was also used for Casino night. I do ask that you do not change the Sponsorship Info Sheet or Sponsorship form without checking with me first because it has the necessary information we will need to properly thank our sponsors and provide them with the necessary tax information. Phyllis and I will be maintaining a list of business who've been approached so that we do not duplicate our efforts or bombard our community with requests. If you have a question about a particular business, feel free to reach out to either of us. All forms need to be returned to me ASAP. Thank you in advance for all of your help in making the 2nd AHE Charity Bash a success. Sarah, aka Mad Magnolia

19 weeks sounds like a really long time, but we all know how fast time is flying by. The Fountain of Youth and Soul Fire are already locked in! The planning committee will be meeting in the coming weeks, and we'd appreciate it if our fellow Krewe members would start reaching out to help us in finding corporate, table and silent auction sponsors. I have attached the Sponsorship Form that we will need completed and submitted. Please send any completed sponsorship forms to me at kiddo1165@gmail.com. I will create a tracking mechanism to give to Roger and Phyllis so that we aren't duplicating any efforts. Let's set a goal to make 2022 an even bigger year for our charity and helping those in dire need. Huzzah, Sarah (Mad Magnolia)

After a successful First Annual All Hallows Eve Charity Bash, we are planning to run the event again this year for the second time. The event was very successful and highly profitable. There are no substantive changes planned to the previous format. With everything we do, we will need Krewe approval to hold the event, and to approve funding for advance expenditures (deposits and purchases). Please be on the lookout for the following motion that will appear on the next ballot: To proceed with the 2nd Annual All Hallows Eve Charity Bash and to approve $6,000.00 for advance expenditures (deposits and purchases). Sarah (Magnolia) Chairperson, AHE 2022

Today the word gaudy is defined as extravagantly bright or showy, typically so as to be tasteless but in the 17th century it was used to refer to the act of rejoicing. As a noun gaudy applied to feasts and festival! The Swabbies of the Krewe of the 13 are looking forward to rejoicing with the rest of the Krewe at the Swabbie Soirée - Open House. This is NOT a garbed event. The Swabbies are excited to see everyone and getting to know the rest of the Krewe members better! Beer, wine, mixers, and even a wee bit of Salamagundi…… Date: Saturday, July 17th 2-6 pm Address: 167 Martin Luther King Ave St. Augustine, FL 32084 Sarah, Phyllis, and Lisa (aka Tortuga)
