Each donor will be asked to put together items, wrapped in a transparent material, and decorated with the event’s theme.
This year’s theme is Return to Margaritaville and the coordinating colors are purple and blue. Donors are asked to coordinate their themes with Earl Noble, the Basket Committee POC. All donors are encouraged to be creative when creating baskets. Baskets should range in value from $250 to $500. The baskets are to be turned in, with a list of contents, to the POC by September 1, 2021.
