The success of our Spring Gala & Auction (Friday, May 12) depends on how many great items we can cull together from families and local businesses, so please consider making or arranging a donation to support your child’s school! We’re looking for everything from tickets to performances, sports games, and cultural events to private tours or behind-the-scenes experiences of any kind; housewares, designer clothing, and accessories; kids’ classes and activities, health and wellness classes, catered dinners, hotel stays, and meals or drinks at great restaurants and bars. Perhaps you have professional skills you can offer, or maybe a vacation home, whether a weekend or a week, in or out of the U.S.? If you’re a loyal customer at a local business, ask for a gift certificate! To make a donation simply fill out the donation form or send it along to the donor. Or email auction co-chairs Kim and Tara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
