Auction Kicks Off / Volunteers Needed

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Auction kick-off events, Lucky's Pub and coffee at Travis. A special thanks goes to Travis parents, Sarah O'Neal and Jessica Taylor. Sarah accommodated our happy hour at Lucky's Pub and Jessica graciously donated coffee and pastries for the coffee meeting. Thank you!

If you couldn't make either meeting and would like to help, we still need you! Visit our page on VolunteerSpot to sign up! The following committees still need volunteers:

Portrait Canvases - Help on one (or both!) of two weekday mornings, Jan. 19 and Jan. 20, at Travis to take kids signed up for auction portrait canvases to and from class to their photo session.

Fundraising - Solicit donations for the silent auction and coordinate pick-up or delivery of items. This all can be done via email on your own time! This group will have a sub-committee to coordinate a new auction area, Kickstarter campaigns for "wish list" projects at Travis (please contact Karly Gibbs for more information).

T-shirts and Ticket Sales - Help with sales of T-shirts and tickets in the Travis foyer on school mornings/afternoons and at the January PTA Meeting.

Set-up at Winter Street - All hands needed to help set up and decorate Thursday and Friday before Auction.

Breakdown - All hands needed to break down tables and clean up the morning after Auction. Incentive will be provided!

Check-in - Greet Auction guests, assign bidder numbers and answer questions.

Check-out - Work the table at the end of the evening, take payments and distribute purchased/won items.

Class Projects - Work with room parents to obtain class projects for all classes from each grade level and set up at Auction. These projects are highly anticipated by parents and are huge sellers at the silent auction.
