Wow – only 31 days until we celebrate at Orchard Lake Country Club. We still have lots to do but we want to share what’s been happening this week and provide a few hints about next week!

  • Invitations have been sent:  Invitations were emailed last week.  If you did not receive an invite, please contact Kristen Bujoll.
  • Frequently Asked Questions:  We are getting a lot of really great questions so we added this section below.


Item of the Week!  Anything Sports

The auction ladies have been actively contacting our local businesses for donations, but we still rely heavily on family donations.

Donate anything sports-related this week and we will enter your children into a classroom surprise raffle.  Of course, we are still accepting other donations as well.  We still need travel packages, electronics, gift cards, entertainment, and wine!

  • What:  Anything sports-related (any sports memorabilia, game tickets, lessons, golf outings, etc.)
  • Deliver to:  The Front Office with the Item Donation Form
  • When:  By Friday (Jan 26th) and we will enter your children into a classroom surprise drawing
  • Drawing: One lucky winner will be selected Monday Morning (Jan 29th) and announced in the weekly Auction Newsletter and Parent Bulletin
  • Hint:  Next week we will be looking for anything electronic or home-related for our families!
  • Questions:  Feel free to contact Shelly Roye or  Kristen Bujoll

Congratulations to Gabrielle Mekani!

Thank you to all the families that sent in donations last week.  Gabrielle Mekani was the lucky winner of the Jan 29th Item of the Week raffle!  All of the students in Mrs. Slifka’s homeroom (D5) will enjoy a Milk & Cookies Party in the cafeteria during their regularly scheduled lunch break!  Due to all the activity around Catholic Schools Week, the Milk & Cookies party will be held next Wednesday (Feb 7th).

Last week we emailed the invitations and, just to keep things exciting, we secured a non-uniform day for all families that purchased their tickets and/or sponsorships by next Friday (Feb 9th).

  • Earn a Free Non-Uniform Day! Purchase your Auction Tickets and/or Sponsorships by next Friday (February 9th) to earn a non-uniform day for your children on Friday, February 23rd.
    • Advanced Tickets are $100 for the Auction Event and $45 for the Afterglow Party.

Sponsorships are HOT, HOT, HOT!

Frequently Asked Questions

We are getting a lot of really great questions and thought that everyone may benefit from the answers…

  • I got the evite.  Am I getting an invitation in the mail too?  No, this year we tried to be consistent with the school’s Michigan Green Schools program and decided to use a paperless evite (saving a few trees along the way).
  • How do I buy tickets?  Tickets are available on BidPal (now called OneCause).
  • How do I get the complimentary tickets?  Complimentary tickets are based on your family’s Total Sponsorship Dollars.  If your family’s Total Sponsorship Dollars are :
    • $250-$499 = 1 ticket to the auction as a token of our appreciation.
    • $500 or more = 2 tickets to the auction as a token of our appreciation.

Do I need to sponsor multiple levels to get the complimentary tickets?  No, the complimentary tickets are based solely on your family’s total Sponsorship Dollars, allowing you to support the area(s) that mean the most to you.


A Special Thank You!

…and last but certainly not least – a Special Thank You to everyone who has already supported the Auction with their time, talent and donations!  We really appreciate it and couldn’t do it without you!
