Those auction items last year were amazing!
How do we always get such great items to auction? FROM YOU!

We are now 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 ITEMS like restaurant gift cards, summer camps, kids activities, tickets to the theater or sporting events, weekend getaways, hotel stays are wonderful. More personal items are great too! Over the last two years, we have had Q300 parents donate full 4-course meals, stays in their vacation homes, custom songs and music lessons, BBQ catering, walking tours of Chinatown, art gallery tours, and even homemade limoncello! Some have put together raffle baskets of sports items, spa items, and even baskets of cheer! Just use this online form to make the arrangements. Please be as detailed as possible and include all items restrictions, expiration dates etc. Please complete your donation entries by Monday, April 10.
  • 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 Journal is passed out at the auction and lists all the auction items. It also celebrates the school, its teachers, and acknowledges our supporters. Of course we do lots of acknowledgements. For more information and reserve an ad see the journal ad form. Or you can simply celebrate Q300 with a contribution via the form. The deadline for reserving journal ads is Friday, April 7.

The Q300 PTA is a non-profit so donations are tax deductible*
