The FOMWS Annual Auction is coming – and we need you!!
Last year the auction raised $70K for Mount Washington Elementary School! The auction consists of two parts - an online portion (in April) and a fantastic live event (this year it will be May 3 at York Manor). The auction committee curates these very special events - bringing together parents, local artists, and local businesses to support our school. The committee always meets in the evenings at someone’s home, and kids are always invited.
Our auction committee kick-off meeting is:
February 6th, 2019
6 - 7:30 P.M.
Contact Coco Medvitz (2019 FOMWS Auction Chair) to R.S.V.P and/or to let us know how you want to get involved.
Here are some of the many ways that you can help:
1 - Join the auction committee.
This team plans and executes the auction. Are you good at fundraising or sales? Do you have press/publicity/marketing know-how? Are you a party planner or do you like to host parties? Do you have stage management, lighting or set dressing savvy? Do you have catering skills? Are you a performer who can lend your talents to our event? Or, if you just like to be part of a team that plans fun things and gets awesome things done, you should join us.
2 - Donate goods or services to the auction.
Examples include food or libations for the event itself. Artwork, gift certificates, tickets to events, jewelry, toys, experiences, hotel or vacation rental stays, etc. for auction items. If you can’t donate items directly, perhaps your company, someone you know, or their company has something excellent to donate.
3 - Sponsor the event.
Sponsors give money directly. Families and local businesses can sponsor. If you own a business, or if you are an independent contractor like a Real Estate Agent, Lawyer, Mortgage Broker, Accountant, Insurance Professional, etc., you should sponsor. You will not only FEEL GREAT doing so, but you will also get increased visibility in our school and community - you’ll be featured in the Auction publicity in advance of, during, and after the event.
We need all hands-on deck-please let us know how you might participate and help!
