Montes in the
calendars! DCSC will be having our annual ‘big’
fundraiser on Saturday, January 5th,
2019, at Montes Showbar Grill located at 245 Waverley
Cory Tetford has again
graciously agreed to perform for us. This is Cory’s third
year helping us out with this fundraiser and if his previous two
shows are anything to go by this is an event that you do not want
to miss. We will also be having an auction as part of this
fundraiser. More details will be coming but this is a great
opportunity to raise money towards your swimmer’s MFC and
also for raising funds for DCSC. Start inviting your family,
friends and neighbours. Tickets will be $20 each. For every ticket
you sell $10 goes to your swimmer’s MFC. If you are able to
secure any auction items, half of what they sell for goes towards
your swimmer’s MFC. When you are doing your Christmas
shopping ask stores if they are willing to donate items for our
auction. If you would like an official ‘ask’ letter for
auction items please email email@example.com. We’ll
be reaching out for some help organizing and running this event so
this is also a way to earn some volunteer points.
Here are the prices for
our December citrus fundraising order:
California Oranges (88
per case) - $54
Florida Grapefruit (36
per case) - $54
Spain (about 90 per case) - $54
is Sunday, December 2nd.
Delivery date is 1800-2000,
Friday, December 7th at 288 Windmill
Road, Unit 1. Just go through the gate and around to
the back. Blue warehouse with white "288 unit 1" in upper
left hand corner of building.
Swimmers will make $10
of fundraising credit for every case sold, $5 for a half case.
Generally we offer family, friends, or neighbours the choice of a
full case or half a case. You can offer a quarter of case but
generally this gets more difficult to manage on your end. You
can suggest if someone wants just a quarter then ask if they know
someone who will buy the other quarter to make a half case.
When we submit the entire order to the supplier, all
individual paddlers orders are tallied up and presented in total
cases to the supplier. Parents are expected to write a cheque
for the entire amount of your swimmers order (made out
to “DCSC”). The VP Finance will then pay the
supplier for the entire invoice. This happens on pick up
date. Everyone picks up their individual orders at the
warehouse; drops off their cheque when you pick up your fruit;
and you then deliver the fruit to your customers over the next
couple of days.
Our new supplier for the
past year, Gaby’s Fruits and Vegetables is excellent and owns
a warehouse on 288 Windmill Road. It is clean and large
enough to back two vehicles in at a time to pick up fruit. No
more bad weather issues. Conveniently local and you can make
multiple trips to collect your fruit, worry free of weather.
Expected spoilage is about 1-2 pieces per case but the fruit
quality is very high. We will have a time, a couple days
after the initial pick up day, to exchange your spoiled fruit.
They have been in business locally for over a decade and he
is very supportive of sports teams and the community.
Please collect your orders over the next 4 weeks.
Go DCSC! This quality of fruit you rarely see in the
grocery store and if you do, it is priced higher. The oranges
and clementines are juicy, sweet and easy to peel. Grapefruit
are perfect ruby red.
