Silent Auction Team
Volunteers 1 

We are in need of volunteers to help with the Spring Fling Thing Silent Auction (May 3, 2013). This is a huge undertaking, so the Silent Auction Team is starting to gear up now!! 


The Silent Auction has unlimited potential when it comes to bringing in money for our school!


The Team will work together to secure donations from area businesses and families.  The more people working on this, the more successful our event will be!


If you are interested in working on the team by contacting businesses, creating  spreadsheets, picking up donations,  licking envelopes, sending emails, organizing the set up of the auction or participating in the auction final transactions - please contact Amy Kissel at amykissel@gmail.com.


I promise we will have a good time while working hard and raising money!



Invest In A Child

Please look for the Invest in a Child Contribution forms in your Wednesday Folders!

Please contact Kathy Heintel at kbheintel@gmail.com if you have any questions.
