Broadview-Thomson school needs auction donations

April 6th, 2011 · No Comments

Broadview-Thomson K-8, which includes students from north Greenwood, is looking for donations for its annual auction, which is the school’s biggest fundraiser. The auction committee is looking for donations large and small, including restaurant and services gift cards, jewelry, CDs or DVDs, art and weekend getaways.

This year’s auction theme is “Let the Good Times Roll.” The event is May 21 at the Bitter Lake Community Center.

If you run your own small business or if you represent an established company, this is an opportunity to show off your products or services to people right here in the local community.  As an individual you might consider using your special skills like beading or carpentry to create a unique auction item.  All donor names (whether business or individual) will be recognized in the auction display and in our auction catalog. Gold Star contributors (donations of $250 or more) will also get special recognition on our web site.

With a New Orleans flair this night of fun and fundraising will include food and music inspiring you to laissez les bon temps (let the good times roll)! Broadview-Thomson’s auctions host 200 or more guests and raise approximately $45,000 each year. Benefiting all students, the money raised allows our PTA to fund a wide variety of programs such as arts education, technology improvements, playground supervision, and field trips.
