Auction Donations

AUCTION DONATIONS – due Friday March 13th
To help make our Auction & Benefit a huge success, we are requesting that each family obtain or donate at least one great item for the auction.

Here are some ideas:

  • Gift cards: Do you have any from Christmas you don’t want for any retail store, restaurants, lessons, health or beauty treatments, etc.? Or, reach out to your favorite establishment for a donation – most businesses love to support their local schools!
  • Physical items: Any electronics, art, and other products should be new or unused.
  • Tickets to sporting or cultural events, travel, or timeshare packages
  • Host an event! Get together with one or two other families for a memorable event. Examples include dinner parties, movie night, casino night, happy hours, swim party, laser tag party, or hiking and a picnic.

Please use this Auction Donation Form. For questions on how to best ask for donations, please contact our auction lead, Karen Geiger at
