Dear Sturgis East and West Parents,
We hope you will join us at the Ridge Club Pavilion in Sandwich on Saturday, April 8th for an “Around the World in One Night” at the 2017 Annual Sturgis Auction. TICKETS CAN BE BOUGHT BY CLICKING THIS LINK. The international themed festivities kick off at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails, Silent and Premium Bid Board Auctions, raffles, food stations showcasing US & International cuisines, followed by the Live Auction!
As always, one of the keys to a successful Auction is the donation of many great items. We ask that you consider making a donation. Examples of desirable donations can be viewed on our “Auction Wish List.” Please watch for our weekly “Wish List Wednesday” emails beginning in February to view an updated list of our auction needs. In addition, we are offering new and exciting advertising opportunities including TV screen advertising at the Ridge Club during our event. Families and businesses can also advertise in our Auction Catalogue. Both are perfect ways to send special messages from your business, pay tribute to a Sturgis faculty member, or send well wishes to your student, their sports team or class. If you wish to make a donation, but are unsure what to send, a monetary contribution can also be made to the Auction.
Last year, we sold out 300 seats at our venue, so please be sure to purchase your tickets early. Invitations to purchase tickets will be extended further to Sturgis alumni and incoming freshmen parents at the end of February. Tickets are not available for sale at the door.
Let’s make this a night to remember, all for the benefit of Sturgis and our children. Proceeds from the Auction are used to support Faculty and departmental requests, academic programming, scholarships, technology, performing arts, athletics, and more. Join hundreds of fellow parents as we come together as a community to celebrate Sturgis Charter Public School. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, April 8th. We thank you in advance for your participation.
