Magic Carpet Party Update
The Magic Carpet party which was held in March was a huge success. The party has raised YTD over $25,000 toward the purchase of the new carpet for the lounge. The color samples are in house. When you are here this weekend for the reunion, take a look at them. They are in the lounge. Special thanks goes to the Des Moines Scottish Rite “Kitchen Krew” for their hard work in preparing the food for the event.
Magic Carpet Party Update II
The Des Moines Scottish Rite has received a challenge gift on all new money donated to the carpet project. The gift is $5000 if another $20,000 if donated by our membership. Essentially it is a $1 for every $4 raised. The additional money will allow us to pay for the carpet in full rather than have to dip into our reserves. Carpet squares are available for purchase at $50 each. The money from the challenge is on the table until May 31, 2007.
