2016-17 ALVARADO PTA
THE 24TH ANNUAL AUCTION
HOW DO I DONATE?
here are many ways! You can donate items online or fill out a donation form and attach it to your item. If you donate online, you do not have to turn in a paper form, and it saves the volunteers (who work hard to put on the Auction) a lot of time and effort. Thank you!

We ask that every family donate at 1-2 items to support the auction’s fundraising efforts–whether you can attend the event, or not.
- Best-selling parent-donated items at the auction include: vacation home rentals, fine wine, champagne or other spirits, delicious chocolate, sports tickets and other event tickets.
- Creative activities for a group of children also sell well, such as: science experiments, craft projects, movie nights with a special theme, and outings to interesting places. See the “Count-Me-In” flyer for a detailed list of ideas for parent-made items and activities.
- Host a themed dinner party or other social gathering, such as a wine tasting party, beer & cheese pairing, or a dinner party with a guest chef.
- Donate your time and creativity by offering hand-made products such as: a monthly pie delivery, frozen home-made cookie dough, hand-knit products, homemade traditional food entrees, decorated birthday cakes, a parking spot in your driveway near Alvarado, or similar items.
If you are a parent and have your donation items ready to drop-off, please leave them in the Alvarado School office after you have made your pledge online, or attach a completed donor form to your item. Items can also be mailed to Alvarado at:
