Otters!!!! The numbers are in! Our grand total is $100,400! This is beyond incredible! I am blown away and feeling so deeply grateful for all your generosity and support. What an amazing community we are a part of! We will be sharing the detailed report and breakdown at our next PTSA meeting when we do the auction debrief report. If you like to nerd-out on that kind of information like I do, please come to the PTA meeting on 4/18.

Y’all ... we have just raised over $100 grand for our students and community. I just needed to say that again. Wow!!

None of this could have happened without a phenomenal team working tirelessly for the past few months. I wanted to first thank Angela and Shelby - our auction-software dynamic duo. Our amazing decorations team who brought life and fun to the Elks Lodge - thank you Spring, Tevi, Lisa, and Debi. Huge thank you to those working on all the preliminary auction stuff: Sponsorships - Deborah; Hosted Parties - Suzanne & Megan; Class Baskets - Courtney; Gifts from the Heart - Natasha & Jen; Communications - Katie; Graphic Design (for our beautiful logo, posters, flyers, signs and programs) - Seth, Valerie & Julie; Website - Tessa & Robb; Auction Accounting - Maria; Art Docents - Jennifer, Rachel, Shalynn, Kimberly; Amy C. for helping Sarah and I with donations; Nancy & Holly for checking-in help; Christina for check-out help; Alain and Maurice for photography; J.J., Jason & Mark for heavy-lifting storage unit help; Eric for coming to our rescue last-minute; Shaun, Brian, Seth and Mark for being our welcome/champagne crew; Gretchen and our PTA Executive Board; all the hands who helped us clean up - all the above and Maria, Peter, Michelle, Matthew, Kate, Michelle, Chris D.; and a big thank you to all of these people’s families for letting me have their time. Also a big thank you to our teachers for their support. A massive thank you to Gordon for being our outstanding Pardi Gras King Auctioneer. And last, but most certainly not least ... to my amazing co-chair Sarah. You are a gem. You truly are. I couldn’t have done any of this without you. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. πŸ™πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’š
