The Mack Event is more than just a fundraiser; it is an important time for us to come together, strengthen our sense of community and celebrate the mission of Mackintosh Academy.
The Mack Event will be a virtual live-streamed event from 6 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on May 9. The evening will be fun for all ages and includes a program, breakout rooms for social time and trivia games, and a few surprises. Our online auction will extend before and after the live event on May 9 and will begin on Thursday, May 7 and continue through Monday, May 11 at noon MST. Items that have been in the live portion in the past like the popular Head of School for the Day, PE Teacher for the Day, and the highly coveted Personal Parking Space will all be a part of the silent online auction. In addition, we have a bunch of special Mackintosh Academy experiences, parties, gift certificates, and vacation homes, to name a few.
Can’t attend virtually, but still want to support Mack? Register and participate in the online auction! There will also be online donation opportunities for those who can be generous during this time! All donations are federally deductible under the specifications outlined in the CARES Act, which allows individual taxpayers who do not itemize to claim up to $300 in charitable contributions as a deduction on their 2020 taxes. Gifts of $1,000 or more may qualify for the Colorado Childcare Contribution Credit. You can click here to make a gift now.
Since our families have become familiar with Zoom this past month, we will be utilizing the Zoom Webinar platform. We will send a Zoom link out the day before the event and a reminder on the 9th.
We're making the final touches to the program but here's a sneak peek:
6:00 p.m.: Welcome messages
6:15 p.m. - 6:35 p.m.: Zoom breakout rooms for social time and trivia games
6:35 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.: Gather all together again for the program and celebration
I hope you'll join us for this fun evening in support of our school as we build community and have our first ever Virtual Mack Event!
Looking forward to "seeing" you on Zoom!
