Today begins the “12 Days before Auction”! The countdown is on, and I would like to specially thank each of you who have been working hard on procurements. We had several who had their items and tickets all accounted for by yesterday’s deadline, and we drew a name out of the “hat” for $100 off December’s tuition. The winning family is….Tim and Jenna Criswell! Congratulations to them and sincere thanks to all who made that extra effort to get their items turned in by the deadline.
We still have quite a ways to go, and in order to be included in the auction we have to receive your items by early next week, so please don’t delay! The ticket stubs are equally urgent to return to the office as the cook is awaiting final count for meals.
We also still need folks to sign up for jobs to make the action of the auction happen! Here are some jobs yet to be filled. Could it be you?
1. Food prep Wednesday, Thursday or Friday afternoons (Nov 15-17). Maybe if you come for your conference you could give an hour or two and be the culinary hero we are waiting for (no previous experience required).
2. Kitchen crew the night of the event is needed. Want to relive your first job by being the dishwasher extraordinaire? We’ll also need several people to prepare and plate the food.
3. Ironing tablecloths. Ironing seems to be almost a lost art, but a skill easily learned. I would love to show you how relaxing it can be! It’s all set up a ready to glide, just let me know when you can stop by!
4. Silent Auction – we could use a few more volunteers to help wrap up the silent auction and get items packaged and collected for bidder pick up. We’ll be sure you get dinner!
5. Clean up crew. Now this is the fun part! (sounding a little Tom Sawyer-ish?) This crew will tear it all down, put it away and set up for Sunday morning. Many hands make lighter work!
Call or email the office ASAP. Some have already signed up and have their assignment – we’ll send out reminders by the end of the week. Thanks for all your efforts – together hopefully we will be able to put on a fantastic event and raise the money to fill out our budget for this school year!
