Auction items needed - You can help!
In order for the event to raise the funds that are needed to enrich students' academic experiences, we need to have a robust auction. BUT, the local businesses that usually donate, including restaurants, hotels and shops, have been devastated by COVID and are not able to donate as they did before.
If you are in a position to help, your support for Santa Monica students is needed now.
There are three ways to help:
1. Make a gift to our special Auction Item Fund right now.
Your donation will be used to purchase auction items from local businesses. You will support our students and local businesses at the same time - a win-win for our community! You can donate to the fund at smedfoundation.org/auctionfund
2. Purchase wine for the auction from The Wine House.
The Wine House has been a partner of this event for six years. This year, they have curated a select set of wines for you to purchase for the auction: https://www.winehouse.com/product-tag/smef-wine-auction/. In addition, they will donate a portion of the proceeds from these wines to the Ed Foundation! Enter code "SMEF Wine Auction" in the Special Instructions box when you purchase so that the wine will be set aside for the Ed Foundation to pick up for the auction.
3. Purchase your own gift cards or donate an item to the auction.
Gift cards and other items along with this form can be mailed to our office at: 1645 16th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404 (or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org). Restaurant gift cards, travel, unique experiences and, of course, wine are always popular ítems.
