Silent Auction

Grade 7 families – Please help make this year’s silent auction a success.

Every Grade 7 family is requested to contribute at least one (preferably more) Silent Auction item and a bottle or two of wine. Silent auction donations can be from you, or you can approach a business that you frequent.

Here are some ideas:

  • New or very lightly used items you already possess or your time and talents can be offered up as well.
  • Items such as tickets to upcoming concerts or sports events
  • Passes to a fitness or yoga studio that you regularly go to
  • A few nights stay at a cabin
  • Gifts of tutoring, babysitting (See below), gardening, cleaning, or cooking
  • Cash donations are also accepted. Make cheque out to Ecole Jules Quesnel and write Senior Trips 2017 in the memo.

When soliciting business, please remember:

  • The benefit to businesses is advertising. Ask for menus, schedules, or brochures to display.
  • If soliciting businesses online, attach the letter and donations forms (below).
  • If soliciting in person, have hard copies to leave behind.
  • The solicitor is responsible for picking up the item and delivering it to Stacey Solomon 3876 Point Grey Road.
  • When choosing a business, think local, think family, and think experience.
  • Be creative and have fun! Together we can make this happen.

Below is a link to a list of silent auction items. Please check this list before approaching businesses to avoid over-solicitation and add items to the list that you would like to donate and or/as you acquire them.

Wine Raffle

It is a JQ tradition to auction off wine baskets of donated wine at the Gala. This is a big fund raiser at the auction.

In order to do this, we ask every Grade 7 family to donate a bottle of red or white wine (or one of each). Next time you are at the liquor store please pick some wine up for the auction. Please choose something that you would like to drink yourself (suggested price point ~$20). Wine donations can be dropped off at the school (Mme Natalie’s office) or Jen and Ed’s house (4507 4th Ave West).

Wine raffle tickets will be sold at the Gala and in front of the school two weeks before the event (along with tickets to the event). Make sure you buy raffle tickets for your chance to win a basket of wine!
