Wed, Oct 23 10:27am
We are so grateful for having strong communities at College Park and Bayside. In preparation for our 8th annual gala on March 7, 2020, we’re leaning on you to help us build our auction offerings.
Popular auction items include: 
  • restaurant gift cards
  • camps for kids during the fall, winter and summer breaks
  • gym class memberships
  • admission tickets

Here’s how you can help 

  1. Make a list of your favorite restaurants, kid camps, fitness classes and other entertainment offerings and email us at with this list so we can see if we’ve already contacted these businesses.
  2. Do you have a lot of frequent flier, hotel or other travel rewards you’d be willing to donate?
  3. Does your company offer a discount? Would you be willing to buy an item using your discount and donate it?
  4. Are you a realtor, optometrist, pediatrician, dentist or small business owner? Consider donating an item to our auction or become a sponsor by January 10, 2020
  5. Lastly, if you have a business contact that you think may be interested in becoming a sponsor, kindly forward their contact info to
