We are grateful to everyone who pivoted right along with us and chose to take part in our virtual Light the Fire Within auction.
Our community came together at a crucial moment for the school. Our success is because of you. I’m thrilled to be able to announce that the auction raised $700,000 in support of our students and teachers!
Not only is this one of the best auction years ever, there’s still more to come! Many of you have asked me about those packages that weren’t included, especially the class art and the Golden Ticket raffle. Rest assured we’re not done yet. We are excited to bring you more opportunities to get involved in the weeks to come.
Vespa Raffle Update
We held a virtual drawing for the Vespa on Friday, April 10 on Facebook. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets!
The amazing class art will be available as part of our Give Day Event in May. Stay tuned, as we’ll be sending more details soon. We have a ton of fun in store, with exciting incentives and even a surprise or two!
For those who were our top bidders and won an auction package, you will soon be receiving your certificates in the mail. For those who won a physical item, please click here to sign up for a pick up time on campus that works for you. If you purchased any class art add-ons, hang tight, we are figuring it out and will be in touch soon!
Even though we couldn’t be together in-person on March 14, we felt your support, your generosity, and your energy. And in case you missed the fun, you can watch the livestream recording here.
During these unprecedented times, we find comfort in knowing that our community continues to do what we do best–come together to support students and support one another.
We also want to acknowledge the support we received from this year’s auction sponsors. We were so thankful to have their partnership and they were a large part in our success. Thank you to the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation, Washington Trust Bank, Zion Estates, The Ericksen Family, MK+Associates, and Windermere Real Estate.
