Greetings from The Friends of Jersey Lilly Saloon,
This year has been a challenge for all of us and we just wanted to touch base with our generous neighbors and supporters. We have all had to make major changes in how we go about our day-to-day business and our fundraising efforts to support the Courthouse Christmas Lighting event are no exception. The Friends of Jersey Lilly Saloon Fundraiser Committee wants you to know how we plan to adjust our efforts for this year to meet the constraints the pandemic has put upon us.
The annual raffle and donor bulbs will again be the center of our efforts with a western bronze “The High Life”, sculpted and donated by Bradford Williams valued at $15,000; a 3-piece 14KT Yellow Gold Tanzanite & Diamond Set donated by Raskin’s Jewelers valued at $1500; and a set of 4 Michelin tires including installation and taxes donated by Prescott Tire Pros valued at $1500 The difference this year is that raffle tickets and donor bulbs will be offered online at www.thefriendsofjls.com in addition to in-person sales at the Jersey Lilly Saloon. The raffle drawing will be held on January 14, 2021 at the Jersey Lilly Saloon.
The winner does not need to be present to win. The personalized bulbs that decorate the back bar throughout the holiday season represent the generous spirit of our community in support of this annual tradition.
The Silent Auction will take place online this year starting a couple of weeks before the live auction. This will be a dynamic event with items being added throughout the event. The Silent Auction will close out just prior to the start of the Live Auction. The Live Auction will be held at the Jersey Lilly Saloon as usual and will be available online as well for folks to bid from anywhere they might feel comfortable. This year’s kickoff party and auction is on Thursday, November 5, from 4 pm to 8 pm. We’ll start off with the silent auction, complimentary food once again provided by Gary Denny and El Charro Norte restaurant, and viewing of the live auction items. This is followed by the exciting live auction.
Please join us for a fun-filled evening of bidding on unique items donated by your fellow members of the business community. Or bid online at www.thefriendsofjls.com. The annual kickoff live auction is one of Prescott’s most exciting affairs. The Friends of Jersey Lilly Saloon realize the challenges you all have faced this year and would be grateful for any support you are comfortable with. Please consider what you can do to support our efforts (gift certificate, artwork, memorabilia, product, employee participation, etc.). If you prefer you may contact the Jersey Lilly Saloon or the Prescott Chamber of Commerce to make arrangements to have your donation picked up. Your support does make a difference which you will see on December 5 during the Courthouse Lighting ceremony.
Thanks in advance for your consideration and continued support. Everyone who donates to the Friends of Jersey Lilly Saloon’s Courthouse Christmas Lighting Fundraiser is considered a Friend of Jersey Lilly Saloon.
