Guest Bloggers: Bidding for a Great Cause on March 12

Kelly Friel & Mary Anne Sullivan, Spring Auction Co-Chairs Volume: 4 Issue: 22 March 4, 2015
Line up your babysitters, secure your tickets and get ready for some fun at our annual Spring Auction! The event is Thursday, March 12 at 7pm. Buy your tickets today!
The Spring Auction has become an anticipated night on the town for our parents. We are introducing some new elements this year as well as having plenty of what has made the event an All Saints tradition.
We’ll be at a new location this year – the ballroom of the W Hoboken. Also new is the online and mobile bidding component.   No more rushing around to see if you’ve been outbid – you will get a text right to your phone! Michael Green will once again entertain us (and encourage some healthy competition!) as Auctioneer.
From foodies to fashionistas, sports enthusiasts to summer campers, there are auction items for the whole family. This year, we have some new vacation homes being offered in our live auction – a ski condo in Vermont and a summer cottage in the Poconos. Looking to be a part of an American tradition and unique New York experience? We have tickets to the Grandstand at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! No time to shop? No problem! Bid on the Trunk Club – an online personal styling site, ideal for men who don’t have time to go to the department stores. If it’s activities for your kids you’re looking for, we got them! Summer camps, music classes and yoga, to name a few.
While the Spring Auction is always a fun night out, the auction is also an important way to raise needed funds to support new initiatives at the All Saints. This year, we are proud to announce that the auction will help fund STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)-related programs and materials. All Saints already offers an amazing educational experience, but by integrating STEM, the school will be elevated to a new academic level.
Make sure to purchase your tickets (by Friday), spread the work and invite your friends and family to get in on the fun and sign up and bid too! Visit www.501auctions.com/allsaintsauction to sign up and preview the auction lots.
See you on March 12th!
