Interior Design Society Sarasota Chapter Meeting next at
The Sarasota Sailing Squadron
Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.

Party on the Pass will be the topic of our upcoming Interior Design Society Sarasota Chapter Meeting on Wednesday, September 14, at 5:30 p.m.

Please Join Us and RSVP Now!

Please be sure to attend this very important upcoming meeting as we run through the details of our
6th annual Party on the Pass.

Volunteers are needed to work short shifts at Party on the Pass!

Each of our Chapter members is invited to help out. We know you want to enjoy yourselves during the evening, so with enough volunteers, we can keep your shift short. Please be sure to come to this meeting and let us know how you'd like to help, whether it's serving food, taking or selling tickets, directing parking or clean-up, just to list a few. Volunteer tickets are $10.00 off the regular price - just $25.00 for volunteers.

For a list of positions needed and to sign up, contact Jim Lachapelle at jimatjessies@aol.com

With your help, we can make this another successful and award-winning year!

Great news! Our sponsorships are nearly sold out. The lead sponsorships have been sold. But there's still a few sponsorship levels available.

Also, donations are needed for our silent auction and raffle. Each member is asked to bring in two auction items. Be sure to get a copy of the donation request letter (available at the meeting or via email) and give it to anyone you know that may be able and willing to donate items.

You may provide a basket, gift or service related to your business, rounds of golf, vacation weekends, restaurant gift certificates and the like are also popular. (Coupons for a discount are not acceptable unless accompanied by an item of value.)

Over the past 5 years, these auction items have enabled the Interior Design Society Sarasota Chapter to donate more than $40,000 to our deserving charities - The Education Foundation of Sarasota Countyand TCI Suncoast (formerly Trinity Charities, Inc.) Please help us top our previous years' donations.

Tickets are available now.

See Dotti Sechrist at this meeting to buy tickets and/or to "sign out" tickets to sell to your friends, neighbors, clients and subcontractors. If you have sold tickets already, please bring your money to turn in to Dotti.

Who's Who?

Again this year, the very popular local band Kettle of Fish will be playing for your entertainment and dancing. The amazing Chef, Joe Dimaggio, Jr. with the newly opened Cafe BarBosso will be serving us a delicious menu of world-class Italian fare. And, the current Board Chair of the Education Foundation of Sarasota County, Tom Koskiwill be our MC for the evening. Tom's sense of humor and enthusiasm for our community makes him the perfect voice for Party on the Pass!

Party on the Pass - History

Party on the Pass began in 2010 as a way to bring our members together in a time when the economy was at one of the lowest points in recent years. And, it worked! Our membership has grown, as well as Party on the Pass. Every year this event has been a sell-out, and our donations to our local deserving charities has grown each year as well. In thanks, not only to our membership, but to those we are in business with and friends who help support this event with their donations and attendance.

Our September meeting will begin at 6 pm. A cash bar (beer, wine, soda) will be available at 5:30 pm. If you wish to bring a snack to share, please feel free to do so. There is a lot of information to cover, so please try to arrive on time and enjoy a very important meeting in a very casual, but beautiful atmosphere.
