TICKETS ARE GOING FAST, WE ARE ALREADY AT OVER 150 TICKETS SOLD – WE ARE ON OUR WAY TO A SELL OUT!!
DONATIONS FOR AUCTION ITEMS ARE NEEDED. WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO THOSE WHO HAVE COME FORWARD AND DONATED ITEMS AND RESOURCES THUS FAR. PLEASE NETWORK ON OUR BEHALF OR CONTACT US FOR ASSISTANCE.
An Auction Preview will be sent out in April. We have some AMAZING, new and unique experiences this year both for adults and our children! For example, Mrs. Stefano and Mrs. Dunham are donating a “Pedicure Party” for a lucky St Andrew winner and friend! Always wanted to host a THEME, catered dinner party complete with wait staff and a bartender to serve up a customized “special” drink for your guests while you relax and enjoy? GREAT, come and bid on the Gala Team’s Top Chef Party Package!
1. Tickets are on sale NOW. You do not need an RSVP to purchase tickets, just submit payment to Karen Dunham. RSVP forms will continue to come home in March and April but we suggest that you do not wait as we are on our way to sell out! Tickets are $50.00 each and we do have the opportunity for you to sponsor a school staff member for an additional $20.00. Forms of payment for tickets will be cash or check only. Credit cards will be accepted for auction items at the gala again this year. We do ask, when possible, to include the names of people in your party if purchasing multiple tickets and include an email so that we may contact you with questions. This is VERY helpful when assigning bid numbers for the auction event.
2. CLASSROOM DONATIONS: PLEASE BRING IN THESE ITEMS AS SOON AS YOU CAN!! This is very important to the success of the auction! Reminders and info will be given to you by way of your child’s teacher but here is an overview:
a. Grades PreK, First and Second – please bring in items related to COOKING, BAKING & KITCHENWARE. Items such as pie pans, cook books, kitchen utensils, small appliances, food/wine etc are wonderful!
b. Grades 3,4,5 – please bring in gift cards in any denomination for restaurants, entertainment and/or retail. Ideas for gift cards include movie tickets, bowling, restaurant, ice cream, rollerskating, arcade, golf, recreation lessons, fun events, wine tasting, retail. Walgreens is a GREAT source for gift cards is many different denominations. They have a large selection of entertainment (AMC) and many restaurants. We would really love some gift cards to fun restaurants! You will be getting specific information on this from your child’s teacher.
3. RAFFLE: instead of a tuition raffle this year, we have decided to raffle off an iPad + Case that was generously donated by the Weitnauer Family. This is an ever popular item and appeals to a larger group. Tickets will be $10 and we hope that each child will sell at least 5 tickets to help us towards our goal of 500!
4. Have ideas or feedback? What would YOU like to bid on at the auction?? Our next gala meeting is March 24rd at 7pm at the Shamp house – feel free to attend!! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for directions.
