Each year at the Geek Gala, we raffle off 16-18 Geeky Goody Baskets. Each basket has a unique theme and is filled with wonderful items donated by our generous sponsors. The proceeds from the raffle tickets are directly donated to our chosen charity. In 2012, we sold 2,000 raffle tickets!
Each basket contains hundreds of dollars worth of items. Our volunteers work hard to collect these items throughout the year, and often donate themselves.
If you have an item you would like to donate, please contact email@example.com. Your donation is tax deductible and would greatly assist us. We love homemade items as well – so if you can make something that fits within our geeky themes – please do so! And we are always collecting baskets to wrap all the geeky items in.
This year’s themes are scheduled to include (themes may change based on types of donations acquired):
- Geeky Reader – fiction
- Geeky Reader – nonfiction
- BBC Geekmerica (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Being Human, Sherlock – if the Brits inspired it – it goes here)
