GIFT AUCTION

Dear Families,

We have had a great turnout of volunteers to solicit for the Gift Auction, but we still need just a few more.  We need someone to handle Holmdel and Hazlet and to assist with contacting MAST families who have donated in the past.  If anyone could take these on, it would be greatly appreciated.   Please contact Samantha Verwilt at samanthaverwilt@aol.com or 732-425-8507 to volunteer.

As we approach Black Friday and Cyber Monday, remember us in your shopping!  All donations will be accepted. (and if you are on Amazon remember to use smile.amazon.com and choose MAST as your charity - MAST PTSA gets a % of the sales)

We are in need of baskets!  Anything you have or receive for the holidays and don't need will be gratefully accepted to hold our auction items.

Do you own a business and would you like to contribute a gift card to your favorite restaurant in lieu of a service?  Many restaurants have deals near the holidays that if you buy a certain amount in cards, you get additional card for you to use.  We will gladly accept donated cards!  Your business will be listed in our program for the evening as a donor.

Are you a Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Thirty-One, Mary Kay or other home business representative?  Are you willing to donate some product or vouchers for products?  Do you know anyone who is a representative and might be willing to donate? 

The solicitation letter and the MAST PTSA mission statement are attached to this email just in case you find yourself in a situation where you could solicit donations.  We have had two donations as a result of someone selling popcorn with their son and talking to neighbors and one because of a trip to the vet.  Think about carrying a few with you.  Just because you aren't on the list of volunteers doesn't mean you can't solicit.  It takes a village!  If you get a donation, please contact Samantha Verwilt at 732-425-8507 to arrange for delivery and to provide the donor's contact information to her for thank you notes.

Please make sure that if the donation is a card or certificate that will expire, the expiration date should  be March 29, 2020, one year after the auction date of March 29, 2019.

Remember that this is our biggest fund raiser of the year; the PTSA uses this money to assist with different activities for our children and for scholarships for college.  The more we get donated for the auction, the less we have to purchase to supplement, the more funds will be available for our students in the end.  

Thank you,

The Gift Auction Committee

 

Thank you to all who have already reached out to help, but we need more parents to jump in and assist!  Please contact me directly at sgavlick@markelcorp.com or 917-838-3767 or Samantha Verwilt, our leader for the Donations Committee, at samantaverwilt@aol.com or 732-425-8507.
