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 still need your help to get more auction items and journal ads. We are seeking donated items and YOU can help put us over the top.

If you are a local business owner or if you work for a business that might be interested in making a tax deductible donation that will help our students…

  • DONATE AUCTION ITEMSlike restaurant gift cards, summer camps, kids’ activities, tickets to the theater or sporting events, weekend getaways and hotel stays.  More personal items are great too. Use this online auction prize donation form to make the arrangements. Please be as detailed as possible and include all items restrictions, expiration dates, etc. A link to the solicitation letter/sponsorship form coming soon.
  • BECOME AN EVENT SPONSOR by placing an ad in the Auction Journal showcasing your business to over 350 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.
  • New this year! GIVE A SHOUT OUT in the Auction Journal.  Have a graduating 8th grader?  Want to thank your teacher as a class gift from all the parents?  Want to congratulate your child or someone else in our community? Show some appreciation – give a Shout Out! Shout Outs will be published in the Stepping Into Summer Auction Journal which will be given to everyone in attendance and available electronically to the whole community. Each Shout Out is just $10, and limited to 140 characters. Purchase them on the Journal Shout Out order form. The cost is tax-deductible.*
