The auction committee is thinking about booking a trip for the live auction and we’re looking for some input on where you want to go! Would you like to bid on a family vacation or a get-away for two? Would you like to go to Europe or Australia? Stay closer to home? A wine tour through Napa? Swimming with dolphins in Florida? Let us know! Comment here or send us an email, Brooke Jones, firstname.lastname@example.org or Emmy Hager, email@example.com.
Thank you so to our newest sponsor—Cheryl Ford Photography! Cheryl is generously donating a photobooth for the night of the auction! Thank you so much Cheryl for supporting our auction.
We need your procurement! If you have items you would like to donate to the auction, please fill out a 2014 Procurement Form and turn it in to the auction box in the school office. Don’t forget about the baskets—there are still a few baskets that need captains—if you’re interested please contact the basket committee. Many of the classes have adopted a basket. If you would like to assist with a class basket, please visit Signupgenius.com to see which basket your class adopted. You can still donate items to a basket even if it has been adopted by someone else.
Do you know that the ABC Auction is not part of the Bear Creek PTA? The ABC Auction is a separate entity from the PTA and supports different programming at our school. The funds raised through the auction go to support staff salary, fund-a-need, and Northshore Schools Foundation (10%). The funds raised through Bear Creek PTA support teachers and staff, school grants, field trip grants, 6th grade play, and much more. To find out more information on auction funding, please visit the ABC Funds page. For more information on what the Bear Creek PTA funds, please visit bearcreekpta.org or contact our PTA President, Nancy Chamberlain.
Don’t forget to purchase your auction tickets! Early bird pricing is still going on and you still have a chance to bid on the VIP Table!
