Baskets for the Springfest Silent Auction
Dear Blessed Sacrament Parent,
The 2017 Springfest Benefit is approaching and your participation is a crucial component to the success of our children’s benefit! Each family must create a basket for our silent auction. If you have not signed up for your basket, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your family name and your basket theme.
Baskets are due Thursday March 9th, 2017, during Parent-Teacher conference. Drop off will take place in the front lobby. When dropping off your basket, be sure to enclose the following information:
This will help us accurately record and track all donations. Please remember that all baskets must be wrapped in clear cellophane with items securely attached inside the basket.
Each family is only required to make one basket donation regardless of the number of students enrolled at the school. However, more than one basket donation is greatly appreciated! J
