Hello Hawthorne families,
As some of you may have heard, we’ve got an exciting social night and fundraiser coming up. On Tuesday, April 10, some of our school’s parents (Jim Annan, Liz Whitmere, Fiona MacCool and more…) will be part of a fun-filled evening at The Comedy Bar at Bloor & Ossington. Laughs! Drinks! Food! Fun! 50/50 draw!
The other aspect of this event is an online auction. We’ve already got some excellent items for the auction from our Grade 5 & 6 families! BUT we’re hoping that *all* Hawthorne families can source an item to donate to this event. If you need ideas, think about the kinds of things that you might want bid on — restaurants, classes, sporting or music events, alcohol.
The auction will be ‘live’ for two weeks, and will wrap up on the evening of April 10. Anyone is eligible to bid, as long as they have the auction link!
I’ve attached a request letter to use when soliciting donations. All donation items should be in by March 25.
Maria Sullivan (Gr 5 parent) has volunteered to track all donations: firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you Maria! Please email her the following for each item: item name, picture of item, or of something similar so bidders get the idea, vendor information, and market price. Please copy email@example.com as well.
Leslie Rosenblood is once again going to manage the auction site for us. This is a big job, and thankfully he’s agreed to do it. Thanks Leslie!!!
IF you have a physical item, please send all of the information to Maria, and then deliver to Tracey Shannon at the Hawthorne office. She has kindly agreed to safely store items until winners come to pick up the item.
Feel free to email questions firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the social evening and the auction to come! Thanks, Tina
