The Auction is coming!

Friday, January 11, 2019

Burgundy's Annual Auction is Saturday, March 2. This year we celebrate Burgundy with our theme "Reaching the Stars." The Auction is our school's primary fundraiser--all proceeds benefit financial aid, which helps one in four Burgundy students. This adults-only evening is an elegant and celebratory event that will include a delicious catered dinner, drinks, mingling with friends and of course wonderful items and experiences for bidding during a silent and live auction!

We will be in touch in the next few days with a note from our Auction Co-chairs Jane Hyatt Thorpe and Betsy Erickson on how to get involved.

In the meantime, there is something you can do this weekend to help us get ready. Are you headed to your favorite restaurant for dinner? Or will you pop into a local boutique for a little retail therapy? Our Auction is the perfect opportunity to help your go-to businesses grow. Consider asking the owner or manager for a donation while you're there. (It'll help if you have the donor form printed and ready to give them.) We've already secured a one-month unlimited membership to a local yoga and Pilates studio, two tickets to a Capitol Steps show in D.C., and a Nickelodeon-themed gift bag full of enviable toys! The possibilities are endless! All business donations will be highlighted in the Auction catalog, in marketing materials, and at the event. 

If the thought of doing this makes you uncomfortable or you'd just like a little more guidance, feel free to contact Kira Brooks, mom of Reese Brooks in the Redtails class or Jill Hood, mom of Ava Hood in the K Fox class. They are happy to answer questions and share their own experiences.

We hope you'll join us at the Auction on March 2. You will continue to hear more about how to get involved via upcoming issues of Constant Comment. Contact co-chairs Jane and Betsy as well as Auction Coordinator Allison Niedbala if you have any questions. For additional information, visit the Auction page on our website here.
