Monroe Christian School

Annual School Auction

(postponed until May 30 due to COVID-19)

Theme: Knight at the Carnival!

When: Saturday, May 30, 2020

Where: The Rock Church, 16891 146th St. SE, Monroe, WA 98272

Our third annual fundraiser is a night of fun and socializing with alumni, parents, teachers, and friends. This event includes both a silent auction, and live auction as well as entertaining games and raffles. Throughout the year, school families and businesses around the community work hard to create, build, or procure amazing items for the school which are auctioned off to highest bidder. Proceeds raised at the auction go toward helping to supplement our general operating fund (tuition covers about 90% of these costs), maintaining the school property, and providing tuition assistance to families as needed.

Each family’s participation is critical to the success of the auction.

How can you help?

  1. Attend the auction! Bring friends!  RSVP right away when you receive the invitation.
  2. Start reaching out to your community of friends, family members, and businesses you frequent for donations. This is a great opportunity for a business to make a tax-deductible contribution and advertise their goods and services.  The donation deadline is March 21, 2020 so the time to begin procuring donations is now!  Procurement forms and procurement letters to businesses are available in the office, and via these links.  If you are using the two-part form from the office, the completed white copy gets attached to the donation; the yellow copy is the tax receipt for the donor.  If you are using a digital copy, please be sure to print one to go with the item and one for the donor.
  3. Make personal donations of cash, goods, or services. Please use the same procurement form that you are using for businesses.  Donation deadline is March 21, 2020.
  4. Volunteering your time. We have many opportunities for volunteers to offer their time and talents to work as a team.  Part of the fun of the auction is getting to know other parents.  Please join us and share your creativity, talent, and energy.  Your time spent goes toward the minimum of 20 service hours required of families.  If you would like to help out with the auction, please email Lita Timmerman at secretary@monroechristian.org.

Thank you for helping to make Monroe Christian School such a vibrant community.

Sincerely,

The MCS Auction Committee
