Spring Auction Fundraiser is coming!

Teach Elementary's annual spring auction fundraiser is April 20.

The Creeky Tiki April Social & Auction is April 20, and we hope you consider making a contribution to this worthwhile event. Now, more than ever, our fundraising efforts are needed! This year scholarship applicants are at an all time high, transportation costs and programming of events off campus rise and our student population is at a high. Not to mention we will need funds for any moves or changes in our future.  Now is the time to come join the fun by attending this event and contributing at an amount where you are comfortable.

The spring auction is Teach's largest and most important fundraiser, and has raised up to $20,000 for our school in the past.  Please participate and make this the best year ever!

If you are able to procure any items for this auction, the committee is looking towards the following categories: hotel, lodging, restaurants, winery/wine, experiences (kayak, surf, arts classes), performance venues, sports events, jewelry or if you have a personal relationship to a local business, please consider asking them for a donation. 

 **NEW THIS YEAR is a Bid Board – where there will be events that you can purchase a ticket to attend. Each sign up is $10 (except for an ‘adult social event’ that is $25/person).

We are looking for volunteers to host these bid board events. Events may be Parent and Child focused, or parent centered. Some examples: Jewelry with kids and parents; surfing class; singing hour; margarita party, movie party; spa party; ‘get chopped’ cooking party, ice cream social, Wii party, Book Party, there are many fun ‘themed’ possibilities! A great way to contribute to our school! Please seriously consider hosting a bid board event!  These events are super fun and have the potential to generate a good amount of funds for our school.  Already donated are a pizza party and a sangria party (yum!).  What the heck is a bid board?

DUE DATE: Please volunteer by Monday, March 18.  Contact your child’s teacher or front office.

Thank you for your help with making this a fun and profitable event. Tickets are on sale HERE. Thank you again for your support of Teach School.

For a vendor letter, kindly email Idona Cabrinha for an electronic copy of the vendor thank you/contribution letter or look in the mail room under ‘AUCTION LETTER to vendors’.
