It’s Auction Time!
Auctionopoly 2019 is already procuring items! As you enjoy your summer months, keep our annual auction in mind! Items can be dropped off at the school, or picked up. If you have questions, comments or to schedule a pick up, email Kayla Sherwood (2019 Auction Chair) at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 907-868-1203 or 907-351-0524.
Here are a couple ways you could help out this summer for LaBear Boutique, the instant purchase section of our school auction in November:
FIRST, calling all crafters! Summer is a great time to make items of your speciality for the auction. Handcrafted items made by our Grace families & students sell very well in La Bear Boutique! Some ideas would be some handmade jewelry, cards, paintings, baked items, etc. Do you sew or knit/crochet? Are you a photographer?
SECOND, would you be interested in heading up the LaBear Bakery? This would entail organizing families to bake their speciality and have it available for purchase at the auction.
LASTLY, we are looking for a parent who has elementary-aged children who would like to learn how to make LaBear Boutique happen! In part, you would accompany Bee Hanson to the Seattle Gift Show in August for the buying trip for the LaBear Boutique.
Please call Bee Hanson at 509-979-7466 with your craft or questions about being the LaBear Lead.
REMEMBER, having our auction November 1st is a great way to do your Christmas shopping! Plan to attend and support our amazing school while preparing for Christmas early! Tickets go on sale in the fall!
