80’s FLASHBACK

Do you remember these lyrics?
“Wake me up before you GO-GO…” or “Because your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance well they’re no friends of mine…”
If you do, you must be a kid/teenager from the 80’s! Our apologies to those who will now have these songs in their heads for the next 24 hours.

PROCUREMENT
The next procurement turn-in is TOMORROW – WEDNESDAY, February 8th during morning drop-off at the flag pole. Look for our 7th & 8th grade volunteers, dressed in their best 80’s outfits; they will happily collect your procurement forms, bottles of wine, donation checks and physical items. We will accept auction procurement items until March 3rd.

As an added incentive, anyone who has dropped off their auction procurement items by February 8th (TOMORROW) will be entered into a raffle for $50 in Scrip of their choice. This means everyone who has dropped off their items since November will be entered into the raffle.

Procurement Items

We want to thank those families who have already dropped off their auction procurement form and/or items!

The auction is St. John’s largest fundraiser of the year. Thus, each family is expected to procure at least $200 in items (or in lieu of items, cash is accepted) for the auction, so that we can raise as much money as possible. The procurement items can run the gamut – restaurant gift cards, exciting Pacific Northwest adventures, kids’ activities – the list is endless. Think about what you would like to bid on at the auction as your guide.

We will accept auction procurement items from now until March 3rd. We have two drop-off dates scheduled (February 8th & March 3rd). On these dates, you will be greeted at drop-off by our wonderful 7th & 8th grade volunteers dressed in 1980s garb. If you cannot drop off during those times, we would be happy to take your items at your convenience.

As an added incentive, anyone who has dropped off their auction procurement items by February 8th (our next drop off date) will be entered into a raffle for $50 in Scrip of their choice. This means everyone who has turned in their procurement forms and/or items since November will be entered into the raffle.
