Save the date! Merrill’s Annual Auction- Friday, April 17th

 

Save the Date for Merrill’s Annual Auction, the evening of Friday, April 17th.  Merrill’s Auction is a fun, community-building fundraiser that welcomes all parents for an evening of food, drinks, entertainment, and, of course, items up for auction and purchase!  Our goal this year is to raise $80,000 toward funding gaps at Merrill that keep our classes sizes low, while also supporting student programs such as STEM, extended learning, supplies and more.
Auction items can range from spa days to unique gift items to trips and experiences, for both adults and kids.  But we can’t do it without your help!  Do you have your own business that provides consumer products and services?  Or perhaps you have a talent or skill for which you could donate your time?  Ideas can include summer lawn maintenance, housekeeping, flower arrangements, event planning, babysitting – you name it!  This could also be a fabulous marketing opportunity to reach the local market surrounding Merrill.
Our student body of 573 students is comprised of 69% feeder neighborhood families (Steele, Cory, University Park and Ellis) and the remaining 31% from other neighborhoods reaching into other markets.  This is your chance to support your local school, while also gaining recognition and goodwill for your business.  Consider offering an item for auction or even an auction sponsorship today!
Retail value of products and services may be tax-deductible depending on your filing status.  Please contact Lisa Cervantes-Glynn with the PTSA if you have something you would like to contribute to the auction, are interested in a sponsorship and/or would like to volunteer to help with the auction planning: (303) 667-8725, lcervantesglynn@gmail.com
Stay tuned for additional details as the event gets closer!
