Silent Auction

It’s time to kick off our Scholarship Silent Auction which takes place at our Candlelight Processional Concert on December 11th, 2018. This annual event raises funds for college scholarships to be awarded in the spring.  Last year we raised $5,500!  The auction will have many baskets of varying monetary values. This year we are trying something new: 

Instead of asking for items, we are asking for a suggested contribution of $20 per family (cash or check) brought to the chorus room

If you would rather purchase an item or items worth at least $20, you may purchase off our Amazon smile wish list with different choices that will make up some baskets as well.  https://smile.amazon.com/hz/ wishlist/dl/invite/eritlRT  If you decide to purchase off Amazon smile, please make sure the shipping address is to Starr’s Mill High Schools, C/O Dr. John Odom/Choral Board, 193 Panther Path, Fayetteville, GA 30215.

 ***Please send contributions in by October 12th***

Additional ways to help or donate:

  • If you love to bake, please sign up online to bring an item for our Bake Sale at https://www.signupgenius.com/ go/904044dadac2aa46-2018   which is held as part of our Scholarship Silent Auction. We will also have a signup sheet closer to the event in the classroom.  Please have your items displayed on a disposable holiday plate and remember the entire item will be auctioned, not individual treats.  i.e. whole cake, batch of cookies, whole pie, etc.
  • We need signatures at Mucklow’s Jewelry between October 1-30!  This is super easy!  If we can get 91 signatures they will donate $2500 in gift certificates!!! (They do this to get known in the neighborhood.  They do not try to sell you anything when you go in nor do they contact you in any way after you sign the form.)
  • If you own a local business or know of someone that does, please consider contributing in some way to our Scholarship Silent Auction.
  • In addition to the basket contribution, An Octave Above and Men of the Mill are being asked to donate restaurant gift cards for our “Dine and Dash” table. These are gift cards that will be sold at face value to raise funds for the scholarship program as well. 
  • If you have season tickets to anything or have a vacation home you’d be willing to donate time at, these would make great auction items!

Please contact Janine Cleary if you would like a letter with our 501C3 and Tax ID # for tax purposes.

Thank you for your time and support!   We hope to make this auction a huge success for the kids!
