The PTA Auction Committee is pleased to announce our plans for our 8th Annual Auction! While we aren’t able to plan right now for an in-person event, we’re going ahead with our online auction to support our PTA, which will go live at the end of March. How do we get such wonderful prizes every year? You! We hope that every Q300 family will try to solicit a donation or donate themselves.
How Can you Help?
- Reach out to businesses and organizations that might want to donate, or donate yourself! Feel free to copy and adapt this sample email or formal solicitation letter. Think camps, local shops, kid activities, service providers! It’s easier that it can seem to ask – folks are often more than happy to donate when they are approached! Submit all donations via this form by March 11, 2022. Want to see who has donated in the past? Feel free to browse our 2019 auction (both “online items” and “event items”).
- Donate a parent/community prize (we can limit bids to Q300 families on these at your request) – maybe you have a special skill that you can share with someone else in our community, virtually or not? Can you speak another language and offer an hour or two of conversation? Are you an amateur cake decorator and can offer a lesson? Can you offer a homemade meal or to teach how to cook your specialty? Can you give a neighborhood tour? We’ve had parents donate everything from photography sessions to homemade meals to walking tours to a singing telegram!
