Final Thank You + Pictures from the Auction Committee
Wed, May 25 9:36am

Hello Thunderbirds,

Hard to believe it but the school year is over! The last couple months have been a fundraising success because of all of you! The auction and hosted parties were so much fun and it was great getting to finally meet so many of you.

This auction went above and beyond what I expected in terms of funds raised and for that I want to say THANK YOU. In total, the auction raised over $65,000 for the PFC. Really, we all should be proud of how our community comes together for our students, teachers, and staff.

In addition to raising money for Thornhill, we raised $16,700 for the Equity Fund for OUSD Schools, which will be distributed through Equity Allies for OUSD, a group of parents and community members who want equity in opportunities, access and outcomes for all children in Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) schools.

It was an honor to be part of such an awesome devoted team this year. Putting on an auction is a big undertaking, but teamwork makes the dream work, so to everyone who helped make the auction a success, no matter how big or small your task was, THANK YOU. We couldn’t have done it without everyone who volunteered during the event, hosted parties, and helped behind the scenes.

To relive all the magic, here is the link to the photo booth photos. We are a fun group of people!

It was an honor to be entrusted with heading the auction, so thank you again. And because I know you all will step up and make next year’s auction a success (and because I may be a little crazy), I have committed to being next year’s auction chair again. So I am really hoping you will join me next year as we have fun putting on another fun and successful event.

Have a wonderful summer. See you next year!

Lauren Lockwood
Auction Chair
