We are going back to the future! The rockin’ Bonne Chance Auction will be held on Saturday, November 8, 2014. So, find your parachute pants and schedule your perm ’cause we’re gonna relive the greatest decade of our lives! Bonne Chance is the school’s largest fundraising event. In 2013, our school community came together to raise more than $350,000–thanks to the generosity of donors like you. This is how you can help this year:
Donations – Use your imagination for goods, services, trips, vacation homes, parties, etc.; the value is tax-deductible. You can also make a cash donation or underwrite items to be purchased. The names of all donors appear in our auction catalog, which is distributed to more than 500 families. (Wish List & Item Donation Contract)
Honor Rolls – Parents, grandparents, alums, and special friends who make a cash donation will be listed in a special Thank You – Honor Roll section of the auction catalog. You can also have your child’s name highlighted in the auction catalog with a student ad! (Donor Support Form)
Righteous Raffle – $100 per entry for a chance to win $10,000. Only 300 tickets will be sold. Buy your ticket now!
Ads – Purchase ad space promoting a business or conveying a personal message. (Advertising Form)
