It is DCP’s largest fundraiser of the year. This year’s theme is PEACE, LOVE & DCP! So start thinking about your best 70′s attire and gear up for the big event on Saturday, February 23, 2013. It will be held at the Artwork Network at 878 Santa Fe Drive. There will be a live auction, a paddle raiser, door prizes and other contests to help us raise money for our school!
A large percentage of your ticket will go directly towards our overall goal of $25,000. Without this money, we wouldn’t be able to pay our teacher’s salaries, keep our lights on, have specials in the classrooms like music and art, and much more. With the purchase of a ticket, you can expect dinner, drinks, dessert, music, dancing and an overall good time!
In past years, families contributed a bottle of wine and a few donations for the auction (or a total value of at least $150). This year we need the following:
- First and foremost, to support our school! Throughout the next few months, the Auction Committee may call upon our community for help with specific donations. If you can help or contribute in any way, it would be greatly appreciated.
- Each DCP family will be responsible for contributing ONE bottle of wine for our wine cellar and various other packages. This year, in lieu of a bottle, you can also donate money to the wine cellar and the Auction Committee will purchase something for you. Joy Wine & Spirits has once again graciously offered to store the wine if purchased at their store and to guide you in the selection process. They will also donate 15% back to DCP on all wine purchases made at their store (at the corner of 6th and Marion).
- Each DCP family will also be required to procure ONE or MORE restaurant gift certificates. Any restaurant, any denomination will do.
- WE ARE ASKING FOR YOU TO PLEASE GET THESE DONATIONS IN BEFORE THE HOLIDAY BREAK!!!!!!!
Absolutely not! You would be amazed at how willing businesses are to donate these certificates, especially to a non-profit such as DCP. It is also great advertising for the business and it helps a lot if it’s an establishment you frequent yourself. A sample procurement letter is available online and will also be included in your parent pocket.
Look to buy your tickets beginning of January 2013 or you can purchase them now on the DCP website!!!!.
Absolutely! On average, DCP has had about 175 people attend our “Auction.” There have always been grandparents, friends and DCP Alumni at our largest fundraiser of the year.
Yes you can! When ticket orders are processed, there will be a section in which you can anonymously purchase an extra ticket(s).
That is a great idea!!! We are all part of the DCP community and encouraged to help out in any way that we can! There will be a spot on the $$ donation page of the DCP website where individuals can donate any amount of money towards the school.
