Dear VCS Families,
I wanted to reach out and let you know about our upcoming annual benefit auction, The Big Event. The theme this year is a Masquerade Ball – “Unmasking the value of Christian Education”. This is our school’s largest fund raising event of the year. We do it up BIG at the Oshkosh Convention Center. This year our auction is on March 28th. Ticket prices are $75 each or two for $100. We will have a host of items to bid on during the silent auction. As well as premium and live auction items. We would love your help:
- Would you make plans to attend?
- Do you have an item you could donate?
- Do you know someone who has something unique to donate?
A few items of interest still on our wish list include:
- Tickets to Augusta National to watch The Masters golf tournament
- A condo or hotel stay in Santa Barbara, CA to go with a fishing trip we have planned.
- We could use some donated air miles to go with an African Safari package.
More information about table and event sponsorship, menu choices, advertising in our program and more is available by downloading the event brochure here, or by contacting Carey Holtz.
It is going to be a great night. We have entertainment for all of our guests. There will be a musical performance from the Broadway play Phantom of the Opera sung by VCS students, parents, and faculty.
Please take note of the bulletin board just inside the school’s front doors with a listing of businesses we wish to contact for donations. Thanks so much for all of your help in making this the best benefit auction our school has ever done.
Just 36 days until the event. NOW is the time for ACTION, please contact Carey Holtz for tickets or to donate an item. Carey may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920.231.9704 x20.
In His Service,
