"Experience" Items Needed for Spring Concert Silent Auction
Dear Choir Parents,
Throughout the school year, our MCHS choir students have had some wonderful vocal experiences and performances in a variety of venues both at school and in the community, and we are very fortunate to have been able to provide our children with these opportunities. As we draw closer to the end of the year, we would like to thank all the choir families for your generous support. It is only through your donations that we are able to meet our costs for administering the choir program and making these experiences possible.
With the Mira Costa spring choral concert coming up on Friday, June 8th, we would like to ask, once again, for your help. This year, we are planning to hold a silent auction fundraiser in conjunction with the concert, and we are looking for "experience" auction items that can be donated for the event:
- Gift certificates for the theater, concerts, sporting events
- Gift cards for movies, iTunes, retail stores, restaurants, ice cream shops
- Getaway items, including airline tickets and hotel vouchers
- Personal services such as manicure, massage, and chiropractic care
- Professional services, including decorating and home improvement
- Music lessons, including voice, piano, or other instruments
- Do you have a vacation home, boat, or time share? Please consider donating it for a week or weekend.
- Get creative: host a Dad's Poker Night or Mom's Night Out event for a group
- Like to cook? How about hosting a cooking party?
We would love to hear about any experience items you may have to contribute. Also, please don't be shy. Ask for certificates from those businesses that provide you services throughout the year. Many are happy to donate and possibly obtain a new client. Be sure to let potential contributors know that these donations are tax deductible. Also, please be sure to submit all contributors' names and addresses so they can be thanked and properly acknowledged in our program.
A letter is attached which can be used to solicit donations. A silent auction submission form is included with it. This submission form may be used to accompany business or personal donations. We will be accepting donations through May 31st.
For more information, or to make a donation via email or by phone, please contact Sene Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org or (310) 874-8452.
