Dear Lilja Community,
On behalf of Mary Jacques (mom to Alex grade 4, Nate grade 2 and Jon grade K) Lara Friedman (mom to Ayla and Zach grade 2), Brian Denning (dad to Gavin grade 4 and Leah incoming), and the PTO we are reaching out for your support and participation in Lilja’s premier fundraising event.
The Biennial Lilja Auction!
Your donations and participation help to support the following:
Field Trip Subsidies for All Families: The PTO underwrites the cost of field trips to support learning outside of the classroom.
Cultural Arts: The PTO brings in authors, artists, and curriculum-enhancing programs for all students.
Library Support: New books for the library each year.
Teacher/Classroom Support: The PTO financially helps teachers to enhance their classrooms and curriculum without incurring personal out of pocket expenses.
Technology Support: The PTO funds technology upgrades so that students are able to use the latest learning tools in the classroom.
Here is where we need your help.
- Solicitors: We have a list of local businesses that we need people to call on to ask them to renew their support.
- Sports Tickets: Do you have or know someone who has sports tickets to donate? (These always make a lot of money for our school!)
- Time shares, vacation homes and airline tickets: Do you or a friend/family member have a time share or a vacation home they would donate – or an abundance of airline miles – these items would be a huge hit and a big money maker for Lilja!
- Raffle items: Do you have access to Broadway in Boston tickets, electronics such as tablets or sound cancelling headphones, speakers, etc.?
- Gift cards: Check your drawer for those gift cards you’ll never use? Check that they are still valid and please donate them to the Lilja auction!
- Autographs and sports memorabilia: Do you have access to sports memorabilia or a collector? If YES, please let us know.
- Family parties: A huge hit at the last auction were parties planned by our own Lilja families. Some examples include: A wine night, game night, outdoor movie nights and The Amazing Race all raised a lot of money for Lilja. Would you like to organize or host a party? You can sign up here
Any other ideas please send them our way!
We look forward to hearing from you! All volunteers will be entered into a raffle to WIN TWO TICKETS TO THE AUCTION!
