  • Peer Leaders “Themed Basket” Silent Auction

       Please join us! The Peer Leaders will be holding a “Themed Basket” Silent Auction on Thursday May 31, 2018 starting at 6:00pm in the High School cafeteria.  This is an update on our “Food Auction” that we have held in the past. We are combining our event with the “Evening with the Arts” in hopes of increasing attendance and exposure. This exciting event will enable us to raise money to fund PEER LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIPS for graduation seniors and fund our end-of –year activities. Last year we were able to give out over $2000 in scholarships! We hope with your support we will be able to do the same or better for our hard working and devoted senior Peer Leaders.

    The Peer Leaders will be running this entire event themselves!  They will be the organizers, clerical staff, presenters and accountants. Come out and see them perform! You will be impressed with their abilities. 

    In past years we have had wonderful contributions including delicious baked goods, fully prepared meals, gift certificates and gift baskets. This year we are expanding our items offered beyond food items. We are asking for items to be in themed baskets of any kind. For example, a “Family Game Night”, “Self - Pampering”, “Birthday Party”, “Sweet Tooth” or “Italian Night” basket to name a few. 

     If you plan on creating a basket to donate to our auction, please bring it to the high school by May 31st.  PLEASE SEE THE FORM ATTACHED. 


    Thank you for all your support
