“Keeping the Dream Alive Benefit Dinner & Auction”
Tulelake Butte Valley Fair press release 5/12/11
The Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair will be holding a benefit dinner and auction on July 9th starting at 6:00 p.m. at the fairgrounds Main Exhibit Building. The fair is reaching out to the public for support due to the recent 100% elimination of funding from the State of California. Up until this year, the Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair has received annual financial support from the state, which amounted to nearly 40% of it’s annual operating budget. The elimination of the state funding will have numerous negative effects throughout the entire California Fair Network and has put 29 fairs at risk of closure. The Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair is listed as one of the 29 “at risk” fairs due to it’s smaller size and dependency on annual support. Due to the funding crisis, the fair has made numerous operating changes to decrease costs and will continue to make additional cuts in order to try to survive and promote a sustainable future.
The benefit dinner and auction will provide an opportunity for the public to help support the fair and maintain the numerous services that the fair currently provides including, a museum of local history of Tulelake, Dorris, Malin and Merrill, a local visitor center of the Tulelake area and the site of the World War II Pacific in the Valor Monument Visitor’s Center.
The fundraising event will include a dinner, cocktails/bar, live auction, kids games and numerous raffles including an early bird raffle, kiddy raffle, bucket raffle, progressive raffle and a general raffle of many exciting items and services. Dinner tickets to the event will cost $10 for Adults, $5 for children 6 to 12 and free for children 5 and under! Dinner tickets purchased prior to July 1st will automatically be entered into an early bird raffle. Raffle tickets are also available now to purchase by visiting or calling the fair office.
The fair is currently seeking monetary donations from the public to purchase items for the fundraising event. All donations made to the non-profit 501c.3 organization “Tulelake-Butte Valley Friends of the Fair” are tax deductible. If you are interested in donating items, services or money for the live auction and raffles, please contact the fair office at 530-667-5312 or send a check payable to the “Tulelake-Butte Valley Friends of the Fair,” P.O.
