Auction Kick-off with Bunco!

prom1982 Prom 1982

The 2017 St. John auction is many months away, but the planning has begun! If you haven’t already heard, the theme of the auction is 1980’s Prom. You have been warned! You have many months to plan your outfits, complete with poufy sleeves, bows, ruffles and metallic/neon colors!

Please join us on Thursday, October 13th from 7-7:30pm in Egan Hall to talk about the planning process and the myriad of ways to help make the auction a huge success. Following our auction meeting, we invite the whole school community to play Bunco, a fun, no skill required dice game. Bring your friends and meet new ones while playing. If you come to the auction meeting, please bring something to drink and/or eat to share with the group.

We are looking for Auction Procurement Leads and Volunteer Coordinators.

The Auction Procurement Chairs are responsible for coordinating a team of volunteers who will procure donations from local businesses. This responsibility includes dividing the volunteer team into areas/neighborhoods, developing a letter that will be included in the procurement packets that are given to businesses and tracking donations as they come in. Someone with good motivational and organizational skills would excel in this position. Works best as a “chairperson team”. Our procurement chair from last year was extremely organized and will mentor you in this position. You will definitely not be “recreating the Procurement wheel.”

The Volunteer Coordinator will quite literally organize and coordinate the many auction volunteers with the help of the Auction Chair and Admin.

If either of these jobs fit your skill set, please email karegunther@yahoo.com or auction@stjohnsea.org. Please remember, the auction is our biggest fundraiser of the school year. We need our community’s talent, energy and enthusiasm to make the auction successful!

We look forward to seeing you on October 13th to kickoff the auction.
