Auction Night 22-23: Saved By The 90's: The One That Got Delayed By THREE Years

 I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour (we need rain!))
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before... by rescheduling our 2nd annual auction night out)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too... by joining the auction team!)


We're going back, back to the 90's, 90's! Fan Favorites, like Friends, came out 25 years ago (eek!)... but if scroll the catalogs this season, you'll see that's just long enough for everything to come full circle, and those styles are baaacckkkkkkkk! 


This event is fully planned and mostly ready to go, as it was only two weeks from happening in 202 when the pandemic hit. However, some committee volunteers have now graduated or moved on, and the donations expired, so we will need a new round of donation collections and to re-affirm team members for roles behind the scenes and day of. If you weren't on the team last year, please join us for this fun event. 


So, whether you are excited about buying something new (what's old is new again!), keep your eye out for nostalgic gems and you might just win the costume contest this year! Feel like a girl's night out? The Spice Girls are calling your name! Couples costume? Kelly Kapowski and Zac Morris might be right up your ally. A solo night out with your pals- TGIF characters abound ("Did I do that?!?!") The auction chairs have even found a perfectly 90s venue off-site willing to give our school a discount in order to keep ticket prices nearly the same! 


Does all of this sound like "all that and a bag of chips"?! Are you scrolling down to see if you can buy a ticket already?! "Aiight"...


BUT FIRST... it takes a TEAM to put on something so big! This online, silent, and live auction includes a night of adult beverages, heavy apps, DJ, and a VERY "fly" surprise that we think will spark a lot of joy(stick). So please sign up to join the crew, it will be a lot of fun, with more than a few trips down memory lane, and some jobs that can be done almost exclusively from home. We need you, like Titanic needed Leo, to make this a success! 


Goal #1 is to HAVE FUN as a parent community! However, as an auction, we also want to raise money for HIPS through the live and silent auction, which all go towards making our school the awesome magnet we know and love. To get such items donated takes works, and a team, to solicit local businesses (a template letter will be provided to you and postage will be reimbursed). Without a team committed to reaching out for donations... there is nothing to auction off... and thus, no auction. Please consider being a part of this most important role/team. It can be done largely from the comfort of your own home or office, possibly with your favorite 90s programming on in the background.
