Auction Dinner Kickoff

The annual Gala/Dinner/Auction is a great opportunity to raise money for the music program. Last year we earned over $5000

So far this year we’re lagging a bit behind and looking to pick up the pace!

The bands are depending on us to help them raise money for clinicians and this is the best event to do that.

We need help procuring items!

Not the cold-call or door-knocker type? Here are some alternatives:

  • Organize the music kids to provide a service. Groups of 2 or more to
    play at an event, offer lessons, manual labor or artistic endeavors.
  • Ask family members to donate to a basket you can submit to the auction instead of
    exchanging gifts. Ideas for this could include themes like sports, pets, games, music,
    food, spa, books, art, or hobbies. Better yet have a fun competition within the family
    to see which members can create the most interesting or fun basket to donate.
  • If you own a business please consider donating services/items. Everything from
    yard care, handyman work, pet sitting, manicures, face painting, baking, providing a special or exotic meal, doing taxes, consulting or organizing.
  • Give memories – send family & friends tickets for the event so they can enjoy an evening of food, music, auctions and comedy
  • We can earn 25% commission on auction sponsorships (see the sponsership
    information pdf). Do you know a business that would like to sponsor the auction?
