What is the auction?
The auction is Hazel Wolf K-8’s biggest fundraiser of the year and biggest party of the year. Everyone in our community is welcome to attend!
Friday, March 23, 2018 from 5 to 11 p.m.
Shoreline Community College
Pagoda Student Union Building (PUB)
16101 Greenwood Avenue North, Shoreline
There will be a light dinner, multiple tables of silent auction items, a dessert dash, games, and a live auction with a professional auctioneer! Tickets are required and are available at a special early-bird price online only through February 5 for $40. Otherwise, tickets are $50 ahead of time or $75 at the door. Get your tickets early because we may sell out!
How does the auction work?
Physical items of every type—such as jewelry, tools, and art—as well as services (spa packages, hotel gift certificates, gym memberships) and experiences (weekend getaways, boat rides, family-hosted events) are donated to the school by local businesses and individuals. These items are then sold on auction night and the proceeds support our programs at Hazel Wolf. We have multiple silent auctions, a live auction and a number of games that match the theme of the auction. There’s something for everyone!
Are auctions only for those with lots of money to spend?
Absolutely not! There will be a wide variety of items available for all levels of spending. While fundraising is an important part of the event (our goal is to raise $95,000 this year!), it’s also a parent social. Please join us for a fun night with other parents (without the kids!) and show support for our school.
Who obtains the donations?
“Procurement” is a term you’ll be hearing a lot in the next few months. In order to have a successful auction, we need lots of items to sell! Procuring is the process of obtaining and collecting donations. We hope that every Hazel Wolf family will procure at least one donation with a minimum $30 value for the auction. However, we encourage families to procure as many items as they want. The more items we have, the more money we raise for Hazel Wolf!
How do I procure donations?
The auction packet contains an idea letter for families as well as a procurement letter to give to potential donors, and everything else you’ll need to secure donations. Packets were sent home via Kidmail. Additional packets and forms are available in the office and on our auction website at www.hazelwolfk8.org/procurement/.
