Parent Social & Fundraising Committee is Looking for Auction Item Donations

Parent Social & Fundraising Committee needs YOUR help!

The ball is rolling and you wondered if we could use your help, right?   YES, we can.  Help create a fantastic evening for our parents by sharing your talents with the committee. Whatever you can do, we can use it, from data entry to setting up decorations, to helping at the event to soliciting donations.  

Have an auction item to donate?auction-items-needed

We are also looking for donations from parents and businesses.  We would love to put your donations to good use.  Do you have that one season ticket date that you just can’t use?  We would love to help you. Have that week or weekend that is not filing up at your vacation house?  Send it our way.  They make great LIVE auction items.  In the past we have had golf at country clubs, a traveling party for 8, season tickets for all major sports, an evening on a sailboat on Lake Michigan, and much more ALL donated by parents.  Please let me know if you would like to help us out in this way.  

For questions or to donate, please call or email Rene Svach  630-276-8222, asvach@ameritech.net
