We are starting to plan for this year’s online auction that will go live in mid January. The online auction is the 2nd largest of the 5 fund raisers we do each year (with Dues being the largest). We need your help NOW in 4 ways:
1. Join our committee. This year the committee heads are Liza Harris, Meredith Tzouros, and Carol Ann Delmonico and we are forming a team to work with us. We are in need of the following roles – emailing donation request letters, following up on donation requests, stopping by local businesses to get donations, and doing data entry of donations into our online system. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to join our team and do one of these roles.
2. We need your help to get items for the donation. This year we want to increase the offering of the very popular and fun parent donated items. In the past we have seen things like following events at your house for a small group of parents including a Tiki Party, Mom Movie Night, Tequila and Tacos, Beer Tasting, Wine and Cheese, Adult Dodge Ball, or a Cookout or other items like Golf Outing, Foreign Language Lessons, Baking and Delivering Sweets once a month for 3 months, Making and delivering soup once a month for 3 months, Soccer skills, music lessons, etc… Do you have season tickets to a sporting team or arts event – if so consider donating some tickets to the auction. Please think what you can donate to the auction. Lucy Mermagen and Liz Bouvier are going to help coordinate getting these type of donations from the K – 2 parents and Carol Ann Delmonico and Maureen Oates are going to help coordinate getting these type of donations from the 3-5 parents. So please contact one of them on what you can offer to the Auction.
3. If you are a business owner, consider donating a service, item, or gift card. Please contact email@example.com if you have an item from your business to donate.
4. If you are a regular at a store, beauty salon, restaurant, etc. ask them if they will donate to our auction. You can provide the business with this letter and donation form. If you get an item from this business please give it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for any help you can give to make this a successful auction year to support all the PTO does!
