Presentation Description: Two 4 One! Each program lasts approximately an hour. We will need time for setting up our equipment before the first program.
Fees: $750/ 1 program___
$1100/ 2 programs___
$1500/ 3 programs___
$1700/ 4 programs___
(All programs must be in one location to receive these rates. If you are located over 100 miles from us, please have us for at least 3 programs–this makes it worth our traveling time.)
If you are located outside the Fort Worth area, please add expenses (transportation, lodging, meals).
(Please remember, all meals are the contractual responsibility of the hosting organization during the author’s stay – including breakfast, lunch, and dinner if an overnight stay is required.)
Please find us a motel/hotel with two separate rooms. Or we can stay in people’s homes, if needed. We do not want anything expensive, just safe and clean. You are welcome to use our AARP status to get reduced rates. Also, if you use the schools’ tax exempt status–you do not have to pay taxes.
Some people have even been able to get motel room donations for the schools.
As far as food, we can eat lunch in the cafeteria if needed. We spend $45 (for 3 meals each/6 meals total per day) or LESS, depending on if we get a breakfast at the motel, and if we eat with you for lunch. We will give you our receipts. We try to keep our costs low. We do not eat at expensive restaurants. Also, many restaurants have given the schools complementary meal coupons.
Our gas is always changing, (because of gas prices) but we drive a 4-cylinder Honda Van, and it is not a gas guzzler.
One thing that may be helpful to finance the program is to contact several schools in the city or area. That way you can share the expense of the rooms and travel. It helps us because we can do several schools in the same time frame. We will be glad to work with you to make it happen!
All expenses and fees must be paid upon day of programs.
