SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT MEMO
Everything You Wanted To Know
Week of April 1, 2019
A Note from the Principal:
The big night has finally arrived! On Saturday night, our community will kick off our boots for a night you won’t want to miss. Our auction team, led by Lisa Markusen, has been working for months to put together what I know will be the party of the year! Our school will be transformed into our very own rodeo where you will find friends and family mingling over beautiful packages during our silent and oral auction, enjoying delicious drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a BBQ dinner.
The auction is our largest fundraiser of the year. Did you know that the funds raised at this event, along with the Jogathon and Cinco de Mayo dinner, help provide each family $1,050 off tuition annually?! Thanks to generous donations and friends and families participating in our fundraising events, we are able to provide this benefit for all families at SJF. Thanks for your support and participation!
The silent auction begins at 5:30pm and is free for all–bring your friends and family. The BBQ dinner will be served at 7:00pm with the oral auction beginning shortly after dinner is served. Additionally this year, we welcome the Robert Henry Band for a post-auction concert that is sure to bring the gym down! For complete auction news, check out http://sjfauction.org/ .
See you Saturday night!
