DONATE AN ITEM

What items make great donations?

Think of items that are desirable, unique & of high quality.  “Priceless” unique experiences fetch A LOT of money: a parent with a special skill (athletes, cooks, artists, or a professional skill for private or group lessons), meet a local professional sports hero, a tour and/or dinner at the local firehouse, items made by children.

Other great items include restaurant gift certificates, vacation getaways, hotel stays, sporting event tickets, sports memorabilia, wine and wine collections, specialty local beer, entertainment tickets (theater, symphony, opera, ballet, concert), fun activities for kids (birthday parties at local businesses, horseback riding, rock climbing classes, ski lessons), and fun outings for adults (pub crawl or craft beer tour, winery tour, spa day, boat cruise, horseback riding, canoe trips, etc.).

Most NEW household items, jewelry, electronics, collectables, artwork, kids’ toys, etc., can make great auction items on their own or can be included in one of our auction baskets.

If I don’t have new items to donate, what else can I do?

Can you host a party?  Offer a weekend at your cabin or vacation home?  Provide a service such as house cleaning, painting, home organizing, or gardening?  Do you cook or bake?  Make jewelry?  Knit?  Sew?  Handmade items also sell well.

Are there any other ways to get involved?

YES!  Please contact your Room Parent to help with your classroom’s auction project which are always big sellers at the auction!  And we always need WINE donated for both serving at the auction and for our Wine Toss – a fun game where you get a chance to win bottles of wine to take home from the auction.

When is the deadline for procurement and where do I leave donations?

Procurement forms and items are due February 18, 2018 and can be dropped off in the auction bin in the PTA office, make sure to attach a completed procurement form.  If you need an item picked up or have other questions. Email | brooksideauction@gmail.com

VOLUNTEER

The auction is an event organized by the Auction Committee. While the auction chairs and committee do much of the planning and foundation work, it is the work of numerous parents that is essential in making this massive undertaking a success.
