IRVING FUN FAIR &
WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR OUR SILENT AUCTION!
Mark your calendars as we will once again be having our annual Fun Fair and Silent Auction on Saturday, February 21, 2015! It will be a day filled with fun and excitement!
The Silent Auction is our biggest annual fundraiser and last year we raised $16,500! The money from the Silent Auction goes directly to the Irving PTO, which continues to fund various programs to enhance the quality of education for our students and teachers. Our success last year was due in large part to your direct support in soliciting items and donating items for this event. Once again we need your support. Please think about talents, items or services you or your employer could donate. Items that are always popular include:
–Sporting—Cubs, Sox, Bears, Blackhawks and Bulls or theatre tickets
–Restaurant certificates/gift cards
–Use of a vacation home or time share
–Services (i.e. interior design, housecleaning, painting, landscaping, contracting)
Anything you like—chances are someone else will want it too!!
Don’t know what to donate to the auction? How about a parent hosted party? This can be a parent hosted party for just kids or adult only. Back for a second year, we will be selling tickets to parent- and teacher-hosted parties. You tell us When, Where, For what age, How many, and Your theme and we will sell the tickets. We can also work with you to come up with an idea. The tickets will be a set price, no bidding. Here are some ideas:
-Parent only progressive dinner hosted by a you and your neighbors
-Cocktails and Game Night
-Cooking or Sewing Class
-Creative Crafts for Kids
-Themed Kid Party (Pirate, Minecraft, Movie Night, etc)
Donations and/or certificates can be dropped off at the school office or you can contact me directly. Please fill out the information on the back of this letter and include it with your donation. If you have any questions about your donation please call or e-mail me.
Thank you for helping in making the 2015 Fun Fair and Silent Auction a huge success!!
