Craft Fair Coordinators Need Help!

June 14, 2011 by admin

Michael and Courtney Falk would like to run the 3rd Annual Harvest Craft Fair, but it’s become too much for just two people, especially with a little one joining them this summer! We need the help of some serious volunteers to make it successful. We need coordinators for the Raffle Booth, the St. Therese Booth, Volunteers, and Public Relations. The following duties are required for these positions:

EDIT:  All positions have been filled!  Thank you, St. Therese!

St. Therese Booth

  • Advertise for/acquire donations
  • Price items
  • Set up the St. Therese Booth before the event


  • Set shifts for the weekend for all areas
  • Advertise for volunteers for the weekend of the Craft Fair through pulpit and bulletin announcements, and personal pleas from the pulpit
  • Help volunteers sign up after all masses in October (you may need to recruit helpers for this)
  • Create charts and reminder cards for easy sign up
  • Answer questions regarding volunteer duties

Public Relations

  • Recruit crew to help distribute advertising posters around Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, West Allis, etc (posters will be provided)
  • Update banners and coordinate with Denise to display them
  • Send bulletin announcements to area churches
  • Write and submit online ads (Craigslist, craft fair websites, tosanow.com, etc)
  • Send info to free publications like community newspapers
  • Write and submit ads for newspapers (Journal-Sentinel,  Catholic Herald, etc)

Raffle Booth

  • Advertise for donations
  • Organize the donations into a pleasing display
  • Set prices for tickets
  • Set up ticket collection bins (coffee cans)
  • Answer any questions about the Raffle or items
  • Call winners Monday after event

All coordinators must be able to take charge and make their own decisions about their duties, as well as be able to follow through with the tasks at hand.  Courtney has all of the materials that were used in the previous two years, and is happy to provide you with them to get you started, including bulletin and pulpit advertisements, businesses that accepted posters, and newspaper and online ads.  Courtney and Michael are also willing to work with you to help you get started.

We hope to start advertising for exhibitors within the next couple of weeks, but we can’t launch this effort alone. If you’re ready to volunteer, or would like even more information, please contact Courtney and Michael, the Craft Fair Coordinators.  Thank you for your support of this community-building fundraiser!
