Join us from 5:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. for a night filled with fun. A Silent Auction, passed appetizers, and a no host bar will be followed by a bountiful meal served during what promises to be an enthralling Live Auction. After enjoying your meal and donating generously, the event will conclude with a live performance by the Drop Off Zone and dancing.
Thanks to those of you who donated last year as we raised more than $160,000. It is essential to continue to support O'Dowd to ensure high standards as a quality college preparatory high school, where every student can achieve his or her academic, personal, and spiritual potential.
Ticket Sales, attendance, and participation are crucial to the success of this auction. We look forward to seeing you at the Grateful Harvest and sharing in a plentiful event.
Marianne Carrasco and Jill Wood
Co-chairs of the Grateful Harvest Auction
We are asking each family to donate a bottle of wine, $20 or more in value. Include any information about this wine that makes it special to you. Our idea is to auction and raffle off the "instant wine cellars."
Deliver items to the Cummins Center, room 23
Show your support by advertising your business in the Grateful Harvest Auction Catalog. We print and distribute to 1500 students and their families and encourage our community to patronize our supporters. Advertising dollars are equivalent to underwriting dollars and significantly increase our revenues. Contact Pam Hoffman.
As a way to thank our donors and highlight their generosity, every contributor will be recognized in the Auction Catalog, evening slideshow, the weekly e-Newsletter, The Dragon Magazine, as well as the school website.
Sponsor contributions and proceeds from this event will be used to renovate our classrooms into high tech, flexible learning spaces that facilitate student engagement and personalized learning. Thanks to the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation, proceeds from this event will be matched 1:2 (ie, every thousand dollars generates an additional five hundred dollars for O'Dowd.) Contact Jim Fehr.
