  • Juniors: "For the Glamorous Gal," spa and beauty products, gardening supplies, wine accessories, ladies lunch gift certificates, accessories, etc.
  • Sophomores: "Resort Rendez vous," beach towels, hats, suncare products, visors, sunglasses, totes, frozen drinks, beach items, etc.
  • Freshmen: "Debutantes and Dudes," games, ear buds, insulated bottles, gift cards: movies, gas, fast food, iTunes, Amazon, etc. 
If you'd prefer, we can do the shopping for you. Please send your item or money in by February 24th, or sooner, to the school office so that we can assemble the baskets and put them on our online event website.

Renaissance is our biggest annual fundraiser. Every family is expected to serve at least two volunteer hours.
 
Ways you can help:
  • Volunteer - Contact Connie Sidwell to let her know how you can help by texting to (863) 287-9426 or by email, connie@conniesidwell.com.
  • Auction items - Do you have a vacation condo you can donate for a week? Can you donate a service by gift certificate? Do you have jewelry you do not wear? Do you have any connections that you'd like us to contact? The possibilities are endless.
