A Note of Thanks:
Oh, What a Night!
The song might not be from the '80s, but the title pretty much sums it up. We came, we saw, we rocked it like a hurricane. I had a blast, and I hope you did, too! You can see highlights of the evening here
THANK YOU. On behalf of the most amazing team of volunteers ever assembled, thank you for your generosity. Your bids, purchases, and paddle raises resulted in $530,000 last Saturday. With this money, we can continue to support AASK, provide our teachers with professional development opportunities, and tackle many needed projects that would not happen otherwise. The phrase "we couldn't have done it without you" is used so frequently as to become trite, but please know it took every single person at the Auction Saturday night and many others who weren't in attendance to pull this all together.
In fact, the 377 attendees enjoyed a fabulous event that happened because of the work of 105 volunteers, both on Saturday night and throughout the year. Volunteers who logged data entry hours, created class projects, solicited businesses for donations and advertising, planned parties, loaded trucks full of items to bring to the event, cleaned it all up once it was over, and much, much more. These volunteers gave countless hours of their time to make this Auction the best it could possibly be, and it was!
Well done, OES! You are like, totally awesome!
With heartfelt gratitude,
2017 Auction Chair
