The 2021 AUCTION had a record breaking Fund An Item. Thank you for virtually joining us! Our community came together as we partnered with local restaurants for dinners and teachers delivered desserts to winning families. The week long auction also included a Fund A School donation to assist Holy Family Bilingual, located at the south end of West Seattle, establish a free & reduced lunch program.
All in all it was a successful event and we are so grateful to our many donors, supports and sponsors.
Reserve March 5, 2022 for next year’s school auction!
The auction committee:
Iwona Konarski (Decor/Logistics), Jet Lin (Procurement), Ryan McLean (Finance), Wendy Mowat (IT), Jamie Soderquist (Decor/Logistics) and many more volunteers.
Thanks to the amazing support of our community SPONSORSHIPS ARE SOLD OUT
The Auction donation deadline of November 30th is early enough to ensure the committee has time to sort items for maximum sales potential. Having a variety of items donated to the auction guarantees that there will be something for everyone. In light of the current times, we ask that you DO NOT ask local businesses for donations this year. Instead purchase your family’s donation from our local West Seattle businesses. They have supported HRS for over 40 years, now it is our turn to support them!
Each family has agreed to donate and/or procure item(s) of $175 in value. You can fulfill this commitment by contributing in one of the following ways: (additional information is available at holyrosaryws.org/give/auction/)
- Make a monetary donation of $175 or more
- Shop our Amazon gift registry: Check out the Auction Wish list 2022 at Amazon.com.
- Refer to list of ideas on back of the handout (to come)
- Sponsor the Auction and help underwrite the event’s cost
