FFTOM and Ballet Folklorico have been selected as the featured non- profits for the month of July. What this means is that we will receive 66% of proceeds received from Full Circle sales for the month, with Folklorico receiving 34%. This includes sales from the shop and the monthly auction. What we need from you, our members, is to clean out that garage, storage unit, attic and house and see what you don’t need that can be donated. Most of the money comes from proceeds of the auction.
Last month MNA and Pine Forest School set the auction record. Their auction items included a VW station wagon and a horse trailer and tack. Other auction items that sell well are musical instruments, tools, antiques, boats, art and other higher end items. You can place items on consignment where you get 65% of the sale, or you can donate all proceeds to FFTOM and Ballet Folklorico.
If you have items for the auction you would like to give now, Full Circle will pick them up and hold them for the July auction. We will also have a Stuff the Truck event where you can bring your donations to the Flagstaff Folk Festival June 27 and 28.
When you shop at Full Circle, let them know you are a FFTOM member and thank them for their support. If you are not familiar with all the wonderful work Full Circle does for local non-profits, visit their website at fullcircletrade.net. We will have events in July with live music, dancing and other activities at Full Circle brought to you by FFTOM and Ballet Folklorico.
