HHS Auction is Coming!
THE HOMESTEAD AUCTION WILL BE HELD ON Jan. 23rd, 6pm to Midnight at Mariani's Restaurant in Santa Clara! Need to unwind after a hectic holiday season? Ready to have some fun and enjoy great food with great people while supporting the Music Department? Come to the HHS Auction! The auction is a SCHOOL WIDE event (organized by the Athletic Boosters). Tickets to the event are $75 each - $25 going to the organization (HHSMB) of your choice. Bid on a basket during the Silent Auction, or on an item during the Live Auction. If you get the item, 45% of the winning bid goes to the Music Department. If the item was donated by the Music Department, then HHSMB gets 90% of the sale price! Some of the items up for auction include vacation home getaways, progressive dinners, tickets to sporting/theatre events, etc. For more information: contact Mary Mansir at email@example.com. Thank you!
The Music Department Needs Your Help!
DONATE ITEMS to the HHS Auction. Do you have season tickets to the Symphony? Opera? A Theatre group? Sports Team? Is there some performance or game that you're not that excited about attending? Those tickets would be the perfect donation item to the Auction!! How about provide a service – teeth whitening, legal service, tutoring? Or are you creative and can provide a monthly floral arrangement, meal, or cookies? Email a description of your items to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Items/certificates/baskets can be dropped off at school during scrip sale hours, my house, or I will arrange for pick up. All donations must be in by January 16th. Any questions, please call or email Mary Mansir (408) 245-2218. Thank you in advance for your support!
