Thanks to the generosity of the community, no child under the age of 18 has ever had to pay their admission to the East Coast Thing. In addition, donated funds have paid for various activities for youth of all ages. The “children’s fund” is well positioned to continue to fund the entry fees and activities for our younger community members with additional funds this year.
For years, volunteers of ECT have generously donated their own financial resources for all the workshops, activities, rituals, and so on. We would like to improve the event without asking any more from our volunteers’ limited resources. Therefore, we would like to ask that people of the Community to continue their amazing support, but for the event itself. For now, the auction proceeds will benefit ECT as an organization. Funds raised will be used to improve services at the Thing without raising costs.
If you have any questions, please reach out to one of the Elders (Joe Marek, Dave Carron, or Greg Fink).
Thank you all for your continued support. Hail the Community! Hail the Gods!
The way it works is simple – the community donates items that are raffled off or put up for bid at an auction. Items can be heathen books, jewelry or toys, bottles of mead, handcrafted items… anything of interest to the Northeast Asatru Community. Then the community purchases raffle tickets (for sale during all meals) for the smaller items or participate in an auction for the bigger ones. The Friday night auction is not to be missed – we guarantee you’ll have some laughs!
So please consider donating something, buying some raffle tickets or bidding on an item or two.
