Gift Baskets

Hello Sunshine Estates friends:

 

As you may recall, as part of our Good Neighbor Day Golf Tournament’s Awards Banquet we have provided unique prizes provided by our Residents. This letter is to help remind you, while you are “back home in the northlands", to consider maintaining this tradition for our 2024 Tournament.

 

We are soliciting your help in continuing to prepare “Gift Baskets” of items found locally in your area during your summer stay. We suggest selecting things that set your home area apart from others. These gift baskets will be awarded as prizes during our Awards Banquet. I am aware of several recipients in the past of these unique gift basket prizes, who have indicated how blessed they were to receive these baskets, and they genuinely appreciated Sunshine Residents’ generosity.

 

In our 2023 Awards Banquet, one of the people who received a Gift Basket in the prior year donated a beautiful quilt made by his wife to pay it forward.

 

For example, I most recently lived in Lafayette, Louisiana. So, I will put together a basket of “Cajun items”; seasoning, rice, Tabasco/hot sauces, Beignet mix, cookbooks, and locally brewed beer/wine for our gift basket.

 

Just think of items your area is famous for and start accumulating them to bring back with you. We want the baskets in the $30-$50 value range.

 

By preparing the baskets we are also providing a showcase for various products that are in North America where Sunshine Estate residents live during the summertime.

 

I hope to see everyone in the Valley in a few months.
