As you know, our annual School Auction is a wonderful event that parents, grandparents, and staff look forward to each year. It is always so much fun! While we join you in feeling disappointment that we are not able to move forward with this year's Oktoberfest event as planned, we have worked really hard to come up with a way to still allow us to participate in the Silent Auction portion of the event. By holding the virtual auction now, it will be done in a timely fashion that will enable us to support our school's financial needs and keep tuition costs affordable.
While we cannot control the virus, nor the challenges it presents to our school and parish, we can control what we make of the circumstances. If you are able, here are three ways you can help make the virtual auction portion of this important annual fundraiser a success!
1. Take a look and start your bidding! There are so many wonderful prizes this year!
2. Donate through the auction website.
3. Encourage others to join you in supporting SMV by sharing the auction website smv2020.givesmart.com with family and friends!
Our virtual auction will close at 10:00pm on Saturday, March 28th.
We've been so impressed by the strength and resilience of SMV - the students, parents, and staff alike - over the past two weeks. We know that we will continue to stand strong in the face of this challenge by coming together in support of this annual fundraiser that is so important to our school, our kids, and their educations.
In kindness and gratitude for your understanding and your generous support,
Auction Committee Leadership
