The PTSA sponsored 2015 Robinson Marketplace will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2015 Last year we had the highest participation yet from our Robinson student groups, clubs, booster clubs, and community partners. Please help us by forwarding the attached application to all current or projected sponsors of our Robinson groups. Applications have just been emailed to previous vendors and the majority of our spots are committed by the summer. It is easier to cancel a spot if a group changes their mind than it is to squeeze them in at the last minute. With abbreviated funds all around, we feel that there is higher value in offering a free spot and table to a group enabling them to earn several hundred dollars themselves versus the PTSA earning $65-$85 for the same spot and then having a group ask us to give them money later in the year. We rarely say no when asked for funds, but we are creating a perfect opportunity to maximize earning potential for everyone and we do the organizing, advertising, setup and cleanup for this fundraising event. We only ask for a few volunteer hours in return from each group. The Robinson Marketplace has become a leading holiday craft show in the area with a great reputation. We should all be proud of that. Thank you all for your help and continued support! We look forward to another successful year and raising additional funds for the Robinson Community. If you have any questions or concern please don't hesitate to contact me.
