April 29 – May 6, 2013
Our Vintage Vegas auction event in March at the Melody Ballroom was a blast! It was so fun to see all of you dressed up and having a night on the town! With your help, we raised over $50,000 to support the students and teachers of Southwest Charter School! Thank you!
As a follow-up to this success, our Spring Online Auction will open for bidding at 8 a.m. on Monday, April 29 and continues for one week, concluding at 9 p.m on Monday, May 6. We will be announcing the web address for the online auction as we approach April 29th.
Who doesn’t like the convenience of shopping online from home and scoring some great deals at the same time?
The online auction is a great place to find a special Mother’s Day gift (May 12th), line up summer activities for the kids, plan some day trips around the Portland area, pinpoint some vacation destinations a little further from home, and secure some cheap eats in town and on the road.
Even though you may have attended the auction event in March, there are many new items available only at the online auction. During last year’s online auction, winning bidders were able to land great deals, often only paying 25% of an item’s value.
There are over 100 exciting items available for bid including:
- Lunch date for 3 with nationally-syndicated talk radio host Lars Larson!
- $200 Adidas gift cards
- Half-day Central Oregon adventure with Wanderlust Tours
- Wine tasting & tour at Domaine Drouhin in Dundee, OR
- Kung Fu lessons for kids and adults conveniently located throughout town at Academy of Kung Fu, NE Academy of Kung Fu, or Westside Academy of Kung Fu
- Personal organzing session with our own Sarah Mutal’s Tidy Spaces
- Estate planning package with SW Charter parent Jim Goldstein
- Backyard BBQ with the Bolstad-Cox family
- Ice Skating at the Sherwood Ice Area
- Night of art, music and wine at Vine Gogh in Sellwood
- School of Rock Camp for 1 week
- Wahoo Fitness iPhone Powered Bike Computer
- Urban Decay Cosmetics sets
- Whale and Sea Life Boat Tour
- Unlimited yoga classes for a month at Yo Yo Yogi
- And much more!
We will also make it easy for you to share information about the online auction with your friends and relatives. We’ll be sending out a sample message you can share via email or Facebook.
All winning items must be picked up at Southwest Charter School on Thursday, May 9th from 3-5 pm.
Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
