Auction Donations

Please consider supporting Harvard Elementary School PTA  Fundraiser with an auction donation 

This year’s fundraiser promises to a fun-filled night with a 007 James Bond theme. Enjoy an evening of casino games and martinis (shaken, not stirred) with the Harvard community on February 16, 2019 at the SPJST Lodge. You can bid on exciting prizes donated by the local community including certificates, merchandise, or services, enjoy food from our local restaurants and dance to The Spotlight Band. We want to continue to provide our children at Harvard Elementary with all the components of a top education including field trips, in-school assemblies, and teacher support. Last year’s success allowed us to provide an outdoor learning area and expanded gardening programs to enhance instruction for the 2018-2019 academic school year.

This coming year we are raising funds to ​bring the Writers in the School Program ​​to our school for 2019-2020 school year. this program pairs professional writers with our students to strengthen creative writing skills and expression. Our fundraising target is an ambitious $135,000 and with your support, and the 400+ parents and educators expected to be in attendance, we are hoping to set a new record! However, ​to do this we need your help​​. Please considering enhancing the merchandise and services we receive from the local business community with ​socials​​, ​experiences,​​ and ​events​​. Your skills, creativity, and resources can help us meet and even surpass our goal.

Ideas include but are not limited to:

● Hosting game, cooking, or wine parties for a group of parents

● Facilitating birthdays, picnics, scavenger hunts, or pool parties for a group of children

● Donating a vacation house for a week/weekend

● Organizing a campout for dads and kids

● Contributing tickets to a local arts or sports event

● Past socials have included BBQ and Beer dinner, Cookie Decorating, Art class, Mom’s Game night, Brewery Bike Tour and more!!! We are always looking for new ideas.

We hope you will consider supporting our event by donating experience and events which can either be auctioned to a single family or to which tickets can be sold. Your support will allow to provide our students with the best educational opportunities. All donors will be listed in our program and on our auction site. Please fill out the attached Auction Donation Form and we will gladly include your donation in our auction. Thank you in advance for considering our donation request and for supporting ​HARVARD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.
