Dear Parents and Guardians,
We need you ALL to be a part of “Queen of Hearts” the Our Lady of Lourdes School’s Annual Dinner, Dance, and Auction fundraiser gala which is on Saturday, February 4th, 2023.
The importance of this fundraiser can’t be stressed enough, as it is our key fundraiser to fund the core operations of our school. We depend on its success. Of all the funds raised at the event, the Live and Silent Auctions account for about two thirds!
What are we asking you to do? To simply share your excitement and ask for auction donations from as many different places of business as you can think of. Of course, you can start with the businesses and services that you use yourself, as they are often happy to support a good client. Don’t be shy, you are just asking, and business owners are often happy for the opportunity to be represented where so many people will see their product. Don’t forget to mention that we also have a live auction for larger donations. To make the job easier, there is a letter attached here, and they are also available in the school office, which you can leave behind. (That way you don’t get bogged down talking details and your conversation can run more naturally.)
Each family is asked to provide one item or monetary donation to be put towards purchasing larger items, as well as request items/donations from as many businesses and organizations as possible. NOW is the time to go full speed ahead on acquiring Auction Items. The date always sneaks up on us, and vendors need time to gather items, so please try to reach out to people as soon as possible.
Let’s all do our very best to support our school. (And of course, have FUN with our “Queen of Hearts” theme!
