Wine Pull at the Community Fundraiser
For the first time we will have a Wine Pull at our Community Fundraiser at the Academy of Science.  If you are not familiar with the concept for a set price you select a token which corresponds to a wrapped bottle of wine of varied values. We are looking for donations of single bottles of wine valued at $40 to $100.  If you have one you can donate, please bring it to Student Services (or Room 1) or contact auction chair, Cheri Jaunich at cjaunich@yahoo.com or 650-288-7518.  Thank you for your participation.
 
New York Hotel for Community Fundraiser
We are very excited by one of our auction package and need your help in rounding it out.  Does anyone have hotel points (or access to a hotel room in New York City) that could be added to an NYC theater package?  Contact auction chair, Cheri Jaunich at cjaunich@yahoo.com or 650-288-7518 to learn more or donate.
