To make this event successful, we need your help! We are looking for donations to showcase at the live and silent auctions, corporate sponsors to underwrite expenses, and volunteers to organize and set up at the event. Please consider a tax deductible donation to support our school!
You can personally donate auction items, recruit friends and family to contribute, or request donations from the business community. Click here for our online donation form. Donations are due by March 1, 2018.
We know that asking for donations can seem daunting. Here are some creative ideas:
- Approach businesses where you are a regular customer: your favorite local restaurants, your longtime nail salon, a favorite boutique. Places where you spend money will be more inclined to contribute.
- Do you or your family own a vacation home? Donate a weekend or week-long stay!
- Create a themed basket of goodies or delectables.
- Does your family or firm have season tickets for a pro or college sports team? Donate tickets to a game!
Sponsors may underwrite a specific auction expense or make a general donation. In return they receive signage at the corresponding location, program recognition, and a mention in auction-related social media posts.
Admiral Level ($1,000): Contribution used for underwriting overall costs. Admiral Level sponsor will receive reserved parking, event-wide recognition, including their logo on signage, the auction website, full-page ad in the program, and social media recognition.
Captain’s Circle ($500): Contribution used for underwriting overall costs. Captain’s Circle sponsors will receive event-wide recognition, including their logo on signage, the auction website, a half-page ad in the event program, and social media recognition.
