Appeal for the Special Appeal…

As you all know, each year the auction raises money for a Special Appeal. This year, Stephan would like us to do a bit of a poll…. If you have a request for what the special appeal should be, please send your comments/suggestions/love to Because the Customs House is a potential move in the future, keep in mind that the ideas that will do best would be those that are mobile – that can be moved to the new school easily if that comes to pass.

As Spring Break lovingly comes to us next week, please remember the Auction as you travel. Ask the resort/compound/villa where you stay to give away a week. Did you spend it with a long lost cousin who happens to be a world renowned chef? Ask him/her to donate to cook a meal for 10 people. Is your house/dog/cat/ferret sitter a brother/sister/cousin to a Blazer? Ask if they could donate tickets/dinner/private lessons to our auction.

Those of you who attended the last PTO meeting heard about the fundraising/community building parties that we are going to be putting online the week before the auction. What we need now are ideas/volunteers/organizers for a variety of parties. If you have fun ideas for scavenger hunts/sock hops/ runs/ garlic parties…whatever you and a few friends could organize, we need your help and input to put this part of the auction together. Please be thinking of how you can get involved and dive (don’t just jump) into the pool with us. Water is fine!!!!

Any ideas/donations/contributions that you have to offer, please let us know at
