    Help for donations for Q300's 5th Annual Summer Auction

    We had some fantastic auction items last year and we already have some great prizes on deck (see below). How do we always get such great items to auction? FROM YOU!
    We need your help to get more auction items and sponsors for our journal. We are seeking donated items and sponsors and YOU can help put us over the top.  Here is a sample letter (link) to use when soliciting donations or sponsorships.  Feel free to adapt it!  And, while in person requests (especially with your children present) are always the most effective, here's a sample email you can use as well (again, feel free to adapt it!).
    DONATE AUCTION ITEMS like restaurant gift cards, small business gift cards, kids’ activities, tickets to the theater or sporting events, gift baskets, vacation home weekends and hotel stays.  More personal items are great too. We love parent experiences - do you have a talent or skill, amateur or professional, to share with the community?  Our parents have offered up everything from home-cooked meals to a singing telegram experience, from architecture consultation to percussion lessons, from a book reading to Chinatown tours and more.  Use this online auction prize donation form to submit the donation info. Please be as detailed as possible and include all items restrictions, expiration dates, etc.  Questions?  Contact auction@q300pta.org.
    BECOME AN EVENT SPONSOR by placing an ad in the Auction Journal showcasing your business to over 500 families who love to support local businesses, plus many more who will visit the auction website. The Stepping Into Summer Auction Journal, which lists auction items, is distributed at the event. It also celebrates the school, its staff, and acknowledges our supporters.  The ad order form is at the bottom of this solicitation letter.  Questions?  Contact journal@q300pta.org.
