I have an item that I would like to donate to the Auction. How do I do that?
of all, thank you! The success of our Auction is entirely dependent on
the generosity of donors such as yourself and our wonderful bidders. To
donate an item, please see the "Item Donation Form", located HERE (for printing) or online HERE.
If it's a physical item (merchandise, gift card, etc.) you can then send it in to the school, attention to "Auction." If your item
is something less "tangible", like time at a vacation home or a
specialty dinner, any supporting material you can send along is helpful,
like brochures, posters, photos, etc. The more we can show about an
item, the more successful it will be!
I know a local business who would like to donate. What should I do?
for making the contact with this business! Much like the personal
donations described above, you can download the "Item Donation Form"
located HERE and take it to them to complete or direct them to the online form HERE.
Please be sure each business gives as much information on the form as
possible, including the item value. Legally, we can not determine the
value of the item -- this must come from the donor! If the business
requires additional documentation, like a request letter or our
nonprofit IRS tax ID number, please download the "Donation Request Packet" located HERE.
Finally, be sure to thank the business for their kind donation (we will
also send a letter of thanks following the auction) and bring the
Donation Form and the item to Marta at the school.
What do the Auction proceeds benefit?
of our students benefit from the proceeds of the Auction. Like our
other Invest in Excellence efforts, the Auction allows us to fulfill our
mission of nurturing children as they grow into confident and moral
lifelong learners and leaders. Fundraising efforts like the Auction
allow the school to to strengthen and deepen our curriculum, to provide
technological advances in the classroom, and to offer exciting
extracurricular activities for our students.
Does the ticket price of $75 provide any profit to St. Chris?
putting on an event of this kind is expensive. Much like a wedding, we
must pay for the use of the hotel and for the food. The $75 ticket price
covers this cost...and guarantees a great meal in a super atmosphere
with wonderful friends!
Will I receive any documentation of my donation?
once the Auction is over, we send thank you notes which detail
donations/purchases to all those who donated and/or attended the
Auction. We are very grateful for everyone's support and want to take
every opportunity to thank you!
How do I RSVP to the Auction?
current parents, as well as friends of St. Christopher who have
attended the Auction previously, will receive an invitation to the
Auction approximately six weeks in advance of the event. You can also
purchase tickets online HERE.
If you do not receive an invitation, or would like us to send one to
someone you know who might be interested in attending, please contact
Marta Nissen at firstname.lastname@example.org . We look forward to seeing you there!
Will I receive actual tickets to the Auction?
We don't actually send home tickets for the Auction. You just need to
show up on Saturday, March 24, ready to have some fun! There will be a
check-in table at the event where you will receive your program for the
evening, a bidder's paddle, and your free drink ticket.
What form of payments do you take at the Auction?
take cash, checks and credit cards. Please know that we must pay a 2%
to 4% fee on every credit card charge, so credit cards do lower our
profit from the evening by 2% to 4%.
What is the dress "code" for the evening?
we are a Catholic school, but that doesn't mean we have a required
uniform for the evening! Our goal is for you to relax and enjoy
yourself, so wear something you will be comfortable in!
