A Little Auction Help

by Mrs. Nilsen on February 20th, 2014

To all the MRA Parents (and really anyone else who reads my blog and wants to help!)

I was just speaking with some staff and parent voluntters that are organizing our school auction and we are in need of some help.  I am hoping that in the Senior grades we can have some additional parent support for the auction.  This is the biggest source of fundraising for the school for the entire year.  As we are a public charter school, t helps to make up the additional 20% of funding that we do not receive from the state.
What we need for the auction are items that are donated from businesses.  They can be something from a $50 gift card all the way to large trips or tickets for events. Any donations are tax deductable for the businesses.
Please let me know if you would be willing to commit to securing a donation of $50 or more for our school auction. This is by no means a requirement for families, but if all families in the Senior grades committed to getting a donation we would be helping our school greatly. Great places to seek donations are from restaurants, your employer, event locations, spa/salons, garden stores/nurseries, vacation rental properties (do you know someone with a beach house?), grocery store gift cards, tire stores ( a new set of tires)…the list goes on.  Are you, or do you know someone who is, a professional that could donate a service?  Let me know if you are willing to help, but can’t think of a place to ask for a donation.
I can get you a donation letter (with tax information) if you are willing to make this commitment.  Please email me if that is the case.  Again, thank you for all you do for our school and we appreciate your support of the MRA auction!
Take care,
Emily Nilsen
