We have an exciting proposition this year to decrease the cost of overhead for our Book Sale. Our annual cost of the Book Sale averages $15 – $20K. For example, each table at the site costs $25 to rent and we require a minimum of 240 tables. We also pay to have books moved from our sorting site to the sale site, plus numerous other miscellaneous expenses. We are pleased to offer the opportunity for members and friends to help sponsor the Book Sale by making a donation to the AAUW Buffalo Branch. Making it relevant to the Book Sale, we have created the following donation categories. Names of sponsors will be recognized by category on a poster at the Book Sale.
- Louisa May Alcott, $25 – $49
- Toni Morrison, $50 – $74
- The Bronte Sisters,$75 – $99
- Jane Austen, $100 +
If you are interested in helping defray our costs, please send a check made out to AAUW Buffalo Branch, c/o Mary Crocker, 375 Parkhurst Blvd., Buffalo, NY 14223. Friends and non-members are also encouraged to help sponsor our sale. What a wonderful gift or memorial idea! Dona-tions are tax deductible.
