Auction News – December 12, 2017

Free Dress – Week before Christmas break

Last year, the Auction offered a week of Free Dress for $25 per student as an Auction item – it was our most popular item! If you missed your chance to sign up or were not here last year, you can still purchase! Visit the Auction webpage to pay by credit card or send a check for $25 per student payable to St. John Auction to the school office by December 15th. All money raised by this fun Auction item supports the school’s operating budget. Parents will receive an email reminding your student that they may come to school December 18-20 in free dress. Yes to Free Dress!

Auction Wine Tasting

Save the Date! Please join us for the St. John Auction Wine Tasting on Friday, January 19th at 7 pm in Egan Hall. We will have over 25 amazing wines to sample and cast your vote for your favorite wine to be offered at the Gala Dinner in April. If you liked what you tasted, you may purchase a bottle or two to bring home! We will have savory and sweet bites, beer and non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy.  Grab a friend and join the fun. Tickets to this event will go on sale Friday, December 15th. We will need some volunteers to share their time and talent with us to help set up, serve, clean up and donate food – the signup genius will be coming soon! All proceeds will go to the school’s operating budget.

Second Procurement Turn-in

The next official St. John Auction procurement drop-off is Wednesday, January 17 at morning drop-off; simply hand in your Auction item(s) with your procurement form (found here) when you drop-off your kids and you will be done! For ALL those families who have turned in your procurement items or forms by January 17th, you will be entered into a raffle for two complimentary tickets to the St. John Wine Tasting on Friday, January 19th. Thank you for your generosity.
