    What about President's Day weekend? Being a long weekend it might be easier for folks to make it an overnight getaway.

    Presidents Day weekend sounds like a great idea. Presidents Day is Monday, February 20th, 2012. I think the Saturday prior which is February 18th would be better than that Sunday. What do you guys/gals think?

    I contacted a few of my friends today and so far we have 3 handmade art pieces that will be Disney related to auction off. Not a bad start...

    We need help from anyone wanting to donate or gather items for the silent auction. Anything of value will be great.

    I'm thinking of contacting Purity for ice cream and maybe Robert Orr Sysco for food items. I dont know anyone at either place so anyone that has a connection feel free to take this ball and run!

    Any ideas or items that you folks can come up with would be great! This thread needs to be alive with discussion over the next couple of months.
    Im excited to see this happen and i hope for a great outcome and lots of money for GKTW!

    Not on a Sunday.

    Presidents Day weekend might work. If roads are not bad, might be able to talk DH into driving down. Mapquest says it's 4 hours - doable.

    Thanks a million Kevin! So far... So good! :thumbsup2
    Thank you so much! We will be in WDW Nov 1-9, We can meet up one day if that would be easier than shipping. (Plus we would love to say hello! :wave2: )

    We have decided on Saturday, February 18th, 2012. More details will come asap! Please contact me if you are willing to help organize, gather donations, etc.

    So far I have a few items being donated for the silent auction including:
    * "MouseJunkies" books donated by author, Bill Burke.
    * Several handmade Disney inspired art pieces by some amazing artists I have the pleasure of knowing.
    * Print by Kathy Werling.

    Thanks to everyone who has stepped up to the plate so far including Kathy from the DisUnplugged for donating a print today!

    Pete, Got anything lying around on the pool table? LOL

    I have several songwriter friends in Nashville. Don't know if we could get folks to come and donate to hear them perform a bit. Please let me know if this might be something you are interested in and I can start pursuing.

    Kevin, Thanks for the plug on this weeks show!
    Let Pete know there will be NO gay lynching! I laughed so darn hard I had to listen to that segment twice! :rotfl: HAHA! I don't own boots nor lynching ropes! :rotfl2: We actually have large gay communities here.

    I'm in Jefferson City about 45 min north of Knoxville. I would love to come if I can work it out. Maybe I am missing something but where is it going to be? I saw the date, but not where.:confused3

    We have a location in Hendersonville TN but we are working on one of two AMAZING spaces in Nashville TN. Either way, Nashville and Hendersonville are only about 15 minutes apart from one another. That being said, just plan on the Nashville TN area.

    Ok, Nashville area is great for us.
    I am leaving on a Disney Dream cruise next weekend. I might try to pick up something ship exclusive that could be used in a silent auction if I see something that strikes my fancy. Do you think that would be a good item? I'll also try to think of some other ideas. :idea:

    I just received a message from Kevin.
    He and John would like to donate:

    A Dining Review with John and Kevin

    There are a few restrictions that go along with this donation.

    *It is for two people plus Kevin and John (total 4 people).

    *It can be scheduled for the next time the high bidder is in Disney World.

    * They are really flexible with their schedule, unless they are going to be out of town.

    * The winner can choose the restaurant, except Victoria and Albert's. V&A require a suit and John and Kevin don't own a suit and don't want to have to buy one to go to dinner.

    * There has to be a minimum bid of $300.
    (These dinners can get pricey and John pays for them. If the bid is less than $300, it makes more sense for them to just donate the money to GKTW.)


    This is an AWESOME "item" !
    Thank you John and Kevin for the donation and great idea!
