The Heat is on for Procurement!

We have already received some amazing items for the auction, but we are looking for more.  Do you need help with deciding what to donate?  Here are some ideas of things we would love to have procured:

  • Gift Cards – what is your favorite place in Seattle?  Share that love by donating a gift card to the Auction!
  • Plan a Day in Your Favorite Neighborhood – How would you spend an afternoon in your favorite Seattle ‘hood?  Gather some friends and put together the ultimate package for a day in Ballard, Fremont, the Central District, or wherever you would like to spend a day.
  • Cash donations are a great way to help out the Auction!  You can donate online or send a check payable to St. John School to 106 N. 79th Street, Seattle, WA 98103.

Still not sure what to procure or donate?  Reach out to your class auction liaison or auction co-chair Kristen Capka.  They can help you find a group to join or suggest some items.  The procurement deadline is February 19.  

We encourage all families to honor their Fair Share Pledge of donating or procuring items worth $250 or more for the Auction.  All money raised goes directly to the school’s Operating Budget.
