WE ARE GOING VIRTUAL, AGAIN!!!
Welcome to Villa's Hope & Happiness Week of Giving! We are so glad you're here and we're excited to share with you the fun events and activities we have planned all week long. While it may not be as fun as an in-person party, it does allow EVERYONE to participate right from their own homes.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Villa, along with our community, has faced challenges we never could have imagined. When our campuses closed last March, our staff worked tirelessly to provide students with a stable and engaging remote learning system while continuing Villa's sense of community. Through this, we have seen growth and success. Our biggest success is the continuing support from the families who have chosen to stay at Villa.
Our annual auction has always been an essential fundraiser for classroom needs, but this year is especially important. Our classrooms have faced a nearly 50% reduction in funding on top of the anticipated gap between government funds and the rising cost to educate each child. This year, your support means more than ever before.
Attending the event can be pricey by the time you add up the cost of tickets, outfits, babysitters, transportation, libations, and so on. We are hoping that this year, in the spirit of supporting Villa and our children, you will redirect those funds towards bidding on one of our exciting SILENT AUCTION items, making a 100% tax-deductible monetary donation, buying a RAFFLE ticket to win a Tuft N Needle bed in ANY SIZE, or securing your spot at our first adult-only virtual party taking place during action week, using the platform "Game Night In." Equally, many of us are dealing with major changes in our lives that make it difficult to participate through financial contributions. We understand and thank you for being part of our community. The good news is that registration is FREE, and by doing so you will be part of all the action during the weeklong event. Follow this link to learn how to register and bid through your phone!
Our community's dedication to the children of Villa is truly exceptional and every child directly benefits from your generosity. Thank you for all that you do!
All gift certificates and gift cards will be mailed out to winners at no additional charge. For larger items, pick-up is available Monday, 4/26 - Wednesday, 4/28 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST. Please email email@example.com with any questions, concerns, or if a later pick-up date is needed.
Thank you for your continued support. Happy Bidding!
