What an Incredible Auction Night!

Mille merci to Holly Mar-Conte, for stepping up as Chair and to the wonderful members of the committee for orchestrating a super fun and very successful event: Mawr Bass, Rachel Buciarski, Amy Clifton, Lauren Jackson, Elle McLean, and Marie Wallmark. Bravo! to Joe Niesley for doing a fantastic job as MC and auctioneer with gusto. Huge round of applause for Aaron Little & Alive! for the awesome tunes that took us back in time. A special thank you to Rachel Henderson for creating a heartwarming video that highlighted the tremendous benefits of our Intern Program (one of the PTO’s prime fundraising objectives).

We are so grateful to the Sponsors of the event whose support laid the foundation for us to have an unforgettable night while serving our prime purpose:

Platinum: Slocum Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine
Gold: Candela Corporation, Eugene Dental Group, OnPoint Community Credit Union, Summit Bank
Silver: Cascade Kids’ Dental, Bailey & Heisey Real Estate – Elle McLean, Hershner Hunter Attorneys, Windermere Real Estate – Rachel Buciarski
Bronze: Serenity Suites 

Our gratitude goes out to Chef Tamisha and the team at Mishjacks Catering for providing an incredible taco bar that covered all the bases as it knocked it out of the flavor ballpark! Thank you to Claim 52 Kitchen and Abbelone Vineyards for the generous donations of beer & wine respectively – as well as to all the parents who contributed bottles to our impressive array of wines that were enjoyed throughout the night! The beautiful living centerpieces generously donated by Down to Earth brought a commemorative (Earth Day) touch to this special night, and the gorgeous Jamie Joseph ring donated by NEWTW!ST was such an elegant feature of our auction offerings.

We were on our feet handling the moving pieces all night, but we we’re thrilled to get to let loose and capture a few special scenes. Here’s to making this the standard for FUNdraising Charlemagne PTO style!!

On a business note: Thank you for your patience in navigating the Auctria system – it was a steep learning curve from the back end, so your understanding is truly appreciated. If you can take a moment to ensure that your purchases tallied and were charged correctly (and please reach out to us frenchiepto@gmail.com with any queries) we would like to be sure that all your generosity flows into our account! 

We will soon have an official update about the amount raised, but early assessment has us thinking that we did hit our target of $40,000 – congratulations to us all for pulling out a win for our school!

On a personal note (from Marta) I loved how lit up the dance floor was! Y’all turned it all the way up and it was magical!! Thanks to DJ Marie (Hallmark, maman of Remy in 4ème) for bringing the fire playlist!!!
