Show Choir Showcase Baskets

Showcase is a once-a-year event to help raise some of the funds needed to cover show choir expenses. One of the ways we raise those funds is through a silent auction of themed baskets at the event. Listed below are the different Basket Themes and suggestions to fill them. While we hope many families will help us fill the baskets, please understand that this is NOT required nor do we expect any one person to fill ALL of one basket (though you can if you want).

Just take a look through the themes and ideas and see if anything looks do-able for you.

If you see something you'd like to purchase and donate, please sign up and tell us what you'll bring. Keep in mind, these are just suggestion to get you thinking. If you have a great idea for an item to fill a basket - just let us know what it is when you sign up. 

Many items are available on our Amazon Smile wishlist HERE. Feel free to order direclty from this list or do your own searching - again, just please note on the SignUp Genius what you purchased. If you choose to order through Amazon Smile, you can have the item delivered to your home or to our Basket Organizer, Tara Fisher, at: 6551 S 41st Street, Lincoln, NE 68516.

Otherwise, items can be dropped off at Tara's house, just call/text her to make arrangements first: 402-610-3019.

The deadline for donations of any type is November 21. 

If your have any questions, please call/text Tara at the number above, Adeana Friesen at 402-318-4954 or any of the other Booster Board.
