Totally 80's!! Auction...
Yes, it's back on ladies and gentlemen! Totally 80's Virtual Dance Party & "Live" Auction!
Silent Auction from May 4th - May 18th
Virtual "LIVE" Dance Party/Auction on May 16th
We hope you and yours are all staying safe and healthy. It's hard to believe that just about a month ago we were in school preparing to host The Totally 80's Auction and having the party of the year! But let's not allow this pandemic to get in the way of still coming together as a community and celebrating and supporting each other while also supporting our school...virtually!
The Auction Committee has worked closely with our administration and we have decided to move forward by holding a Totally 80's Virtual Dance Party and "Live" Auction!
Odyssey relies on funds from the annual auction to support our robust school culture and academic program which includes responsive student to teacher ratios, adventure programming and quality professional development for staff. These things make our school a precious gem of teaching and learning for children. We were planning on raising $35,000 for our school and hope that we can still raise some funds while having fun!
A few details:
--Bidding will open on Monday May 4th for silent items and will close Monday, May 18th at noon.
--Special “Quarantine Relief” items will be on offer. These include Kid's Fun baskets, "Quarantine Essentials" basket, "Billy's Crew Beer/Brewery" baskets, and a few other items that might help keep your kids busy during this unprecedented time!
--You can bid online or on the Handbid mobile app, which you can download from the App Store or Play Store.
--We will offer porch pickup in the Park Hill neighborhood for any large items. All flat items (certificates, gift cards) can be picked up or mailed at your expense. We can not offer shipping, but are happy to hold your items until you feel comfortable picking them up.
--All sales are final. Please note that some items have event dates that are uncertain at this time - we ask that you work with the provider to determine rescheduled event details. We have decided to cancel Buy-a-Share parties at this time, but will look forward to next year when we can offer this at a future auction. We also will follow up with teachers for their Teacher Donation and try to reschedule as best we can, but cannot follow up on other items.
--Bid on all you can. Remember, it’s a win-win--you get a cool product, event, or experience, and Odyssey gets needed fundraising dollars!
We greatly appreciate your support of this event. If you have already bought a ticket, please consider it a donation to the school. However, we do realize this is a difficult time for our families and if it is a hardship to donate your ticket, please email Elki.
Invite your friends, neighbors, grandparents and other relatives and colleagues. This is a unique time where people are coming together globally and helping local communities in beautiful ways. The more people who attend, the more fun we will have and the more money we will raise for our school community!
If you're unable to attend the auction, but still want to support our school, consider donating directly.
Please email the Auction Committee with any questions – firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll see you on Saturday, May 16th for the dance party...just don't forget your hairspray and spandex...there will still be a costume contest!
