Auction Room Parent Information
Whatever happens at the Dixie Gala, stays at the Dixie Gala! Get ready to have an amazing evening at Dixie’s annual charity auction and gala! Join us on May 5 at Allure featuring a night filled with drinks, food, dancing, Vegas style games and a silent and live auction raising critical funds for Dixie Canyon. This is one of our biggest fundraiser of the year, but we can’t make it a success without your help. So come join the fun and help boost student achievement at Dixie!
In an effort to make our school auction extra special, we are asking that each class prepare a themed gift basket for the “Class Basket” category of the auction. As room parent, you may facilitate this yourself or have another parent coordinate the basket. See below for the attached list of classrooms to see what basket you will be preparing!!! If you have another idea for your basket, please let us know.
Please submit a basket filled with goodies that represent your basket’s theme. Gift cards are great to put in the baskets. BE CREATIVE. Ask the other parents in your classroom to contribute to make your basket awesome.
** If your basket is valued at over $250, please break it into 2 baskets.
Due Date to Turn in your Basket:
We will be outside in front of the school collecting the class baskets on Tuesday and Thursday, April 10 & 12, between 7:45am – 8:20am and between 2:15-3:15pm on each day. If this does not work for you, please contact us so we can make other arrangements. Your basket should be wrapped, and include the attached form (see below). Also, please take a photo of your entire finished basket before you wrap it, and email the picture to us.
Silent and Live Auction:
If you know anyone who can donate gift cards, items or services, please let us know. We are in need of items for our auction. This is where we make the most money, so it is important that we get nice items to auction off. Ask your class if they have any connections!!!
Sponsor Your Teacher:
Starting on April 3, you can purchase your teacher’s ticket for only $75. Early bird prices of $75 for regular tickets will be sold from April 3-April 15, and will go up to $85 on April 16. Please consider sponsoring your teacher’s ticket and their spouse, or significant other, so they will be able to attend the gala. You may collect money from the class, or you may ask a parent or two to sponsor their teacher to go. If any parent(s) wishes to sponsor a teacher, we will provide a nice card filled out with their info to give to the teacher letting them know who sponsored their tickets. Also, we would like to sponsor the office staff to attend as well, so if you want to buy a ticket or contribute money towards that, we can collect this money as well.
Any questions???? Please contact Janene Gerber at email@example.com or Kim Hirsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
