Coming Soon: Online Silent Auction

Some of the gift certificates that businesses donated as prizes for our 2020 Tricky Tray will expire prior to March of 2021. As a result, Franklin Woman’s Club is investigating options for an online silent auction of select Tricky Tray prizes (gift certificates, Christmas items, etc.) to be conducted in October or November. 

The Tricky Tray committee will replenish prizes as necessary, so there will still be an abundance of prizes at our 2021 Tricky Tray.  

Please visit our website again for more information on the online auction.
 

Prizes to Include: 

 

Park Hopper Passes to Disney World


$300 Amazon Gift Cards

Wheeled  Carry-On

Instant Pot


Restaurant Gift Cards


Themed Gift Baskets (i.e., beach, wine, cooking, baking, pet, coffee, tea, gardening, scrap-booking, and many more!)

POSTPONED 27th Annual Tricky Tray 

When we last updated this space, our hope was to hold our Tricky Tray at Franklin High School in October. Since then, Franklin Township Public Schools has announced that they will not be allowing use of any of their buildings by outside groups. We tried to find another venue for an indoor/outdoor event, but our efforts were further complicated when, in August, the limit on the number of people allowed at an indoor gathering in NJ was reduced from 50 to 25.


As a result, we no longer expect to be able to hold our 27th Annual Tricky Tray in 2020. We are now aiming for spring of 2021.  Since we do not yet have a venue, we do not have a firm date. However, the Eventbrite system we use for online ordering of tickets requires us to put in a new date when we postpone. For that purpose we are using the date of March 19, 2021.


When we have a new date and location, we will email ticket holders with all the details. At that time, should they no longer wish or be able to attend, they will be given the opportunity to request a refund, or to cancel their reservation while donating their $20 registration fee to the club for our scholarship fund.


If you are a ticket holder and prefer to receive a refund now, please email fwctrickytray@yahoo.com. Please include your name, address and details about what should be refunded. FYI, it is likely that when we are finally able to hold this Tricky Tray that we will NOT open sales up again, so that we have a less crowded event.


If you ordered tickets for friends or relatives, please share this information with them.  Thank you for your patience.

Proceeds from the Tricky Tray benefit the Franklin Woman’s Club Scholarship Fund and other civic activities.
