This is what we are giving away (read below for more information):
My daughter's middle school has received a special invitation to participate in a prestigious choral festival of Gold in Washington DC next year. This is an opportunity for them to perform in front of judges and other high achieving high school and middle school choral programs. It is also a chance for them to receive musical feedback and instruction from leading educators and musicians in the choral field, along with the ability to collaborate with other choir students from around the United States. The invitation was extended to my daughter's middle school as a result of their high choral competition scores in a Heritage Music Festival in San Diego last year.
As you can imagine a trip like this has considerable costs to it. In order to raise funds for her to go to this festival, my daughter is working with my wife to sell handmade hobby horses.
I told them if they could make one with a Utah Jazz theme, I would post a Hobby Horse Give-Away on SLC Dunk so that we could get the word out for what they are doing.
My wife is an amazing seamstress having done costuming for Peter Pan, Once on this Island, AIDA, and Damn Yankees for Signature Productions, and Music Man for Huntsman Entertainment. Though her core business is sewing custom costumes.
Here are some links to her sewing work:
And here are the links to the hobby horses they are selling:
Please note that they are selling these hobby horses for $55 each - which is a steal as handmade hobby horses such as these normally sell for $75 to $90.
The Jazz themed hobby horse needs a name (all the hobby horses have their own names). So to participate in this give-away here's what you do:
1. Post or rec what you think the hobby horse's name should be in the comments
and then either:
1. Go to my wife's Facebook Page and click the "like" button, or
2. Tweet this post
Remember the purpose of this give-away is to raise people's awareness to what my daughter and my wife are doing - so you can tweet and like if you want, but you only need to do one. There is no purchase necessary.
On December 11 we will select a winner and send him/her the Jazz themed hobby horse pictured above so they can have it for Christmas.
One other note, because this is a free give-away, we will only ship for free to the lower 48 states; if you are outside that area and want to participate, you will be responsible for shipping charges.
Thank you all in advance.
