Grade 7s – Please Help Make This Year’s Silent Auction Awesome!

Every Grade 7 family is encouraged to contribute at least one (preferably 2) Silent Auction items and a bottle of wine.

Silent auction donations can be from you, or you can approach a business:

  • Items you already possess as well as your time and talents can be offered up, as well.
  • Items such as sports or concert tickets or weekend getaways to your cabin or gifts of babysitting, tutoring, gardening, cleaning or cooking.
  • Cash donations are also accepted. Make cheque out to Ecole Jules Quesnel and write Senior Trip 2016 in the memo. Only cash donations ($25 and over) receive a tax deductible receipt.

When soliticiting, please remember:

  • The benefit to businesses is advertising. Ask for menus or brochures to display.
  • If soliciting businesses online, attach the letter and donation forms below.
  • If soliciting in person, have hard copies to hand out.
  • The solicitor is responsible for picking up the item and delivering it to the appropriate place (location to come).
  • When choosing a business, think local and think family and think experience. (Children’s classes for instance).

Be creative and have fun! Together we can make this happen.
