Rockin’ Riverboat Ride Dinner & Auction

Saturday, April 5, 2014
Multnomah Athletic Club

Mark the date, hire the sitter and invite the grandparents to Southwest Charter School’s largest fundraiser!  All are welcome as we celebrate our school and enjoy an evening of music, games and elegant food.

Tickets are $45 per person and go on sale Monday, March 17th. This year we’ll have assigned dinner seating and an option to sit near friends or other parents.  This option is first-come, first-served, so don’t delay!

You’ll also be able to browse a selection of our incredible auction items online and enter the Golden Ticket Drawing for $50.   If we draw your name on auction night, you win your choice of any live item.

Invite your friends and family to join the party via Facebook by sharing this Facebook event link.

Wall of Wine Donation Collection Begins This Week, Donation Drawing Deadline  April 3rd! 

We ask each SWCS family to contribute one bottle of wine (valued at $15 and up) toward the Wall of Wine.  On event night we’ll sell off these mystery bottles and purchasers just might take home a bottle worth $50 or $60!  Your bottle (labeled with your name and the value) can be turned into the SWCS office.  Each time you submit a bottle your name will go into a drawing for a two-hour $99 auto detail at LARA Detailing right by the school. Imagine your car after 2 hours at an auto spa!

Sign-Up Party Deadline this Friday, March 14th

Host a sign-up party, submit your form by March 14th and win a free 30 minute music lesson from SWCS family owned Sound Roots School of Music!  Do you love to throw parties or do have an idea for a class that you have always wanted to teach? Now is your chance and it will help benefit Southwest Charter school! Our sign up events raised almost $3,000 at our 2013 auction. Fill out a form, turn it in to the auction box at the front desk or to Harmony Spangler by Friday, March 14.

Some Ideas From Past Years are:

80’s Prom Party, Wine & Cheese Cruise, Family Hike, Pickling Party, Fairy Garden Workshop, Soap Making Class, Murder Mystery Dinner, Cake Decorating Class, Canoe Excursion, A Knitty Brunch

We Are Still Collecting Auction Item Donations!

Every SWCS family is asked to procure one donated item for the auction.    Whether it’s a $10 gift certificate from your favorite take-out restaurant, a week at your parent’s timeshare, or hosting a sign up party, every donation benefits our kids and our auction is only as successful as the donations we receive. All donations should be placed in the donation bin (with a completed donation form attached)  next to Kathy’s desk.

Congratulations to our March 7th procurement winners:

Meghan Ruona, won the Verde Cocina dinner basket and Adrienne & Brian Smith won the Pearl MedSpa skincare package.

Raise your paddle at the $250 level or above on Auction Night and help earn each SWCS teacher and staff member a two-night stay on Mt. Hood!

Special thanks to Tiffany & Chris Cox for donating up to 17 two-night stays for each of the SWCS teachers and staff at their Roaring River Retreat vacation home on Mt. Hood (!   Each time a paddle is raised on auction night at the $250 level and above, our community will earn one of our hardworking teachers & staff members a getaway! Get ready to raise your paddles high on auction night to show ALL 17 of our teachers & staff how much we appreciate them.

Thank You to Our Rockin’ Riverboat Ride Sponsors

Event sponsors help us minimize event expenses and maximize our fundraising.  Without these generous sponsors, we wouldn’t be able to host this year’s amazing auction event.  Thank you to our valued community partners:
