Tabletop Center Piece Designer – We need your creativity to pull together fun centerpieces that will compliment our Auction theme!

Easy Ways to Help the Auction
Not sure how to honor your tuition contract commitment of $250 per family for donating or procuring items for the Auction?  Here are some easy ways to fulfill the commitment:

  • Cash donations are always welcome and can be made on-line.
  • Gift Cards – Purchase from Scrip and ask them to give it to the Auction.  Gift cards such as Fred Meyer, Target, Starbucks and Diva Espresso are always popular
  • Alcohol – bottles of wine, spirits, etc.

The next procurement drop off date is Thursday, February 13th, but you can bring your items to the Auction office located in the Administration building anytime between now and then.  Thank you for your donations and your procurement efforts!  All money raised goes directly to the school’s Operating Budget.
