DKGNJ In-Person Convention 2022!
What's happening in DKGNJ
DKGNJ Convention 2022 is an in-person event on April 1-3, 2022. The executive committee is happy to see that over 150 people have registered for convention, and we look forward to seeing each and every one of you. We will miss seeing anyone who is unable to attend but understand attendance is a personal decision.
Unfortunately, registration is much lower than in previous years for understandable reasons but there is a way for everyone to help. You may recall that donations were solicited last year after the cancellation of the 2020 convention and our inability to hold the basket auction during the virtual event in 2021. Through your generous donations, we brought in over $4,500 last year that was used to fund several projects. The only way we make money at the convention is through the basket auction and now with fewer members in attendance and bills looming in front of us our funds are in jeopardy. We don’t want to ask for donations every year, but this year is different and we are once again requesting donations. If you are able to donate, there are many ways for you to do this. You can buy extra tickets at the basket auction, you can have a friend buy tickets for you during the basket auction, you can click the link below and make your donation on-line, or you can send a check to our treasurer, Ellen Hahn. Your donation will be used to continue the good works of DKGNJ. Thank you for considering a donation and we look forward to seeing many more people at DKGNJ Convention in 2023!
