Get To Work

Now that our event is actually an official thing now, we actually have to start working super hard. Like really hard. Our biggest project right now is getting businesses to sponsor us. It sounds like a pretty easy thing to do but its harder than it seems. Some businesses are totally for it while others are hesitant or just totally against it. It frustrates us a little bit when we are rejected because we don't understand how a business wouldn't want to sponsor our event. It's helping children live! Anyways after totaling up most of what we will have to spend on the event, we will need at least eleven sponsors to make this event 100% for St. Jude. Again, it sounds easier than it is. Luckily I live in a town where there are many independently owned businesses that I believe would love to sponsor us. After we get the money from our sponsors, that is when we can actually start hiring people and activities. We are hoping to have a magician, henna tattoo artist, caricature artist and a hypnotist at our event at different points in the night. As for activities we are hoping for laser tag, mechanical bull, obstacle course, Velcro wall, photo booths, etc. All of these activities are really fun to look at and think about having, but unfortanely, the price tag makes it less fun when you have to come up with the money on your own. This is going to test us to see if we can actually take it and I'm ready for it!
