Fun Fair Silent Auction

Last year, the PTO doubled the proceeds of the Fall Fun Fair by adding a Silent Auction. We're looking for your help this year to make this year's auction even better. Please begin thinking about something fun that your family could donate to the auction.

Popular items last year included theme baskets (movie night, arts and crafts, books etc.), gift certificates, lessons (knitting, yoga, etc.), artwork, and baked goods. Some generous parents also donated their time and talents, such as an afternoon riding along with a horse vet or a kitchen design consultation.

The sky's the limit, and we'd love to use this blog as a place where people can suggest and discuss donation ideas. Maybe you've got tons of ideas, but limited time and budget. A less creative soul might appreciate your suggestion! Anyone?

Please have your donation turned in by Friday, September 28 so that we can get organized in time for the Fun Fair on October 5th.

Please contact the Silent Auction co-chairs if you have any questions or to make a donation. Donations can also be placed in the PTO mailbox in the Greenbrier office.
