Grout Elementary is excited to have its first ever annual auction at St. David of Wales Church community room! This is a 21+ event with music, food drink and lots of terrific items on the (silent) auction block.
This auction came about with the need to replace our existing wooden play structure that is falling apart. We are hoping this will be a very successful event and will give our kids and neighborhood a new and improved environment for play. Child care will be available at Grout during the event.
What to Expect:
The evening will consist of a silent auction with a ton of awesome items up for grabs… one of our favorite being tickets to Disneyland! We will also be auctioning off art produced by Grout Students. Also expect some great local beer, food and music. The Auction will also be a fun way to meet new people and get to know the Grout community.
The new playground is long overdue and will be cherished by the 300+ kids at Grout Elementary, a Title 1 public school located in SE Portland.
The school playground and field is a well-used destination for dog-play, baseball, soccer and we need YOUR help! We are expecting to need $50,000 in a combination of donations, sponsorships and grants to purchase and install a structure and the Silent Auction is the kick-off to the year-long fundraising we need to do to make this dream happen!
We are still looking for event sponsors!
Any activities or expenses that are not covered by the school budget are funded by the PTA. Each year, the sponsorship donations given for these events fund the PTA activities for the rest of the school year.
If you or your employer are interested in sponsoring this year’s Spring Auction by making a tax deductible donation please contact the PTA at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support!
