A fundraiser for teachers? What’s up with that?
It’s pretty simple. Our faculty and staff bring their whole selves everyday to a school that deeply believes in the power of whole child education. Our charter school status allows us to create that wonderful unique space, and it also means that our faculty and staff are paid outside of the school district payroll and benefits structure. With little room in our tight budget to make up the difference, our community supports a silent auction to help.
Is this the same as the Winter Faire silent auction?
Yes and no. This replaces that auction, as you probably noted this year when you didn’t see it at the Winter Faire. But it is different in that it’s bigger, has other components including a live auction and a cash bar, and has a much larger financial goal.
How much are you trying to raise?
With 43 faculty and staff, we have a $25,000 goal. Every dollar above that makes a huge impact, so be sure to get your bid on! You can also lend support as a sponsor. Please email Michelle Glanville to learn more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s included in the ticket price, and will there be a bar?
Admission to the event and light appetizers are included in the ticket price. There will be a cash bar (proceeds go to The Rio, but we’ll have a donation jar nearby).
Are kids allowed?
No, this event is for adults only. Babes in arms are permitted, however the venue can be quite loud at times. Please keep that in mind when planning your fun evening out.
If I volunteer, can I get in for free?
No, the ticket sales provide important income for this event. All volunteers will require a purchased ticket. However, we’d love for faculty and staff to attend without having to buy a ticket so we’re offering a Pay it Forward option. Look for this option when you buy your own tickets!
