Guest Blog: Bidding for a Cause

Mary Anne Sullivan
It is my pleasure to extend to you all an invitation to our spring auction on Thursday, March 6th. This annual event is met with much anticipation and excitement by many in our school community. Who will win the ever-popular Shipyard Pool Pass? Who will get the winning bid for the Head of School gift? Some competitive juices will be flowing, to be sure, but it’s all in good fun and all for a great cause – the betterment of our school and our facilities expansion. We are happy to be returning to the Kolo Klub and to have Michael Green as our auctioneer once again. For those of you that have attended the auction the last two years, you know that Michael’s performance is not to be missed!

There is something for everyone at the auction – from foodies to sports aficionados; from wine connoisseurs to art lovers—there will be the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of items. Some items this year include tickets to a variety of sporting events, including Jets’ football and tickets to a Yankees/Redsox game; vacation getaways; enrichment opportunities and many wonderful teacher experiences, to name a few.

The Auction is a great night out that supports a wonderful cause – our students benefit from our support and contributions. We are delighted that we were able to keep ticket prices the same as last year, so if you have not done so already, please reserve your tickets now. Tickets can be purchased through our website via paypal (no paypal account needed) or reservations can be taken in person at either 707 Washington Street or at the Saint Nicholas Center.

In order to make this auction a success we need your help. Please consider doing the following, if you are able:

1. Buy your tickets now
2. Consider sponsoring a ticket for a teacher to be able to attend. There are 18 teachers who would like to attend the auction and currently 12 of tickets have been sponsored.
3. Spread the word: invite friends, family and neighbors to come.
4. Share the event on your facebook page & email the flyer to friends

Line up your babysitter and reserve your tickets for a fabulous night out on the town!
