Example Basket Story: Iris Kirk

All of our basket donations have a Brain Buddie story behind them. This is an example of a real Raffle Basket that was previously donated for our fundraiser. Please use this example as a guide to help you understand what is meant when we ask for your “basket info sheet” or “basket story” or “Brain Buddie story”.

Brain Buddie Story:

My Grandma was a baker for Winchells and I remember her always bringing home donuts from work for us kids. I chose to build a “Grandma Kirk’s Donut Basket” and fill it with tons of fun donut themed items. Her faith was also very important to her so there is a cross to represent that part of her. Her name was Iris and so I found a stuffed turtle with her name on it. There are also some of her favorite candies. Just little trinkets that remind me of her and in that way I can share her story (and our love of donuts) with others!
