We’ve said it before (on the very first page of the catalog that maybe 3 people actually read), but we have no problem saying it over and again: we are consistently blown away by you people. The final numbers are not in yet, but it seems clear the Auction did well.
It was also a ridiculously good time.
Last night’s extraordinary event would not have been possible (or nearly as fun!) without all of you…
Your generous donations
Your volunteered time and energy
Your fantastic spirit, attitude and encouragement
Your all-out, nearly shocking dedication to ‘80s costuming
Your funky dance moves
It seems so unbelievable that a group of people associated with an elementary school can get together and pull something like this off. We raise a bunch of money to give our kids the kind of education we collectively think they deserve, and we somehow manage to have a fantastic time while doing it. Every year this Auction brings us closer and makes us stronger as a community: when we work on it together, when we whoop it up at the actual event, when we continue to come together to strengthen connections – and make new ones – at “hosted parties” throughout the year.
It’s truly inspiring, and we are grateful to be a part of it.
Watch for Yahoo Group messages in the coming days on how to pick up your items left behind last night and from the Online Auction. In the meantime, our heartfelt thanks – and congratulations!
