HOW YOU CAN HELP WITH THIS YEAR’S DRAGON SALE
THE LIVE AUCTION NEEDS YOU!
For those of you new to the school, the Live Auction brings the sale to a close on the day with the help of a professional Auctioneer.
We have new and exciting prizes in the Live Auction this year and we’d love to attract 2 or 3 more prizes. Ideally, these would be unusual or unique money-can’t-buy prizes or experiences that will whet the appetites of bidders on the day! Do you have a contact in the worlds of sport, music, theatre, film? Can you offer a memorable experience? We would love to hear from you with any ideas.
Please remember every penny raised goes to charity - supporting children locally, nationally & internationally.
HOLIDAY PROPERTIES IN THE SILENT AUCTION
This year we’re hoping to have a section in the Silent Auction for holiday properties. It’s a great space to set out the details and terms and conditions for these prizes. If you have a second home perhaps you’d be happy to offer a weekend or week in the Silent Auction?
We are still actively seeking other Silent Auction prizes too - do get in touch with your ideas. For all Auction enquiries or donations please contact Catherine Allen on firstname.lastname@example.org
