2018 YCS Auction: The Sweetest Thing

YCS Sweetest Thing Logo_2018_Final_CroppedThe YCS Auction is the single largest fundraising event of the year and funds in-class enrichment programs, classroom supplies, library books, lunch aides, and recess help.

More than a great fundraiser, this event is also a great party!   We will have food from local restaurants, refreshments, both a silent and a live auction, all taking place in the “cafetorium”, which will be transformed into a magical land of candy and sweets using artwork created by our students.

The PTA-hosted Auction is on Saturday, March 24th, 2018 from 7pm – 11pm.

Tickets cost $75.00 per person.

– Two prime orchestra seats to Hamilton

– A three night stay at the fabulous Colony Palm Beach hotel

– A luxurious two night staycation at the world renowned Lowell Hotel

– Amazing Rod Stewart Tickets with backstage passes

There are additional ways that you can help make our auction a success, including:

1. Volunteer with our auction team! For details email Kate Hrobsky or visit our Auction SignUp Genius to see what is available

2. Ask for gift certificates when you visit/contact your favorite restaurant, beach club, camp, nail salon, country club, shop, etc. Going away for vacation? Ask the hotel for a donation. Know anyone who could provide yoga classes, private fitness lessons, or music/acting/vocal lessons?  These make great auction items to put up for bid!

Experience proves that people are very responsive to our requests. For some this may stretch your comfort zone, but if you can just make the effort to ask, you’ll be surprised how friendly and supportive people are!! These organizations love to donate to school auctions, it is great marketing for them and opens them up to whole new client base, so do not be shy to ask, everyone wins! YCS will auction the items providing funds for our enrichment programs, while the business will obtain exposure in our catalog, website, and obtain new clients, a win-win situation!

We can’t do it without your help and looking forward to seeing many of you at the kick off auction meeting and of course at the Auction!
