PTL'S 4th Annual Dinner & Auction


 

Hooray for St. John's!  You are cordially invited to our 4th Annual Dinner & Auction benefiting the children of St. John's Lutheran School.

On Saturday, April 1, 2017, the Parent Teacher League (PTL) of St. John’s Lutheran School will be hosting its annual Dinner & Silent Auction fundraiser to benefit the school.  All proceeds from this event will be used to support and enhance the education of our children by enabling us to update our technology resources.

We are in the process of collecting goods and services for our silent auction.  I am writing to request your support in making our event a grand success.  Past fundraisers have enabled us to purchase classroom Smart Boards, new laptops for teachers, and install a school-wide wireless network.  This year, we are looking to raise funds to continue technology enhancements. Our goal is to purchase enough Chromebooks for all of our students in the upper grades in order to better prepare them for high school, add Chromebooks into the middle grade classrooms, and purchase new computers for each lower grade classroom in addition to our continued support of general capital improvements to our school. 

 

Check out our Classroom Basket List  by clicking the link or clicking Silent-Live Auction on the right hand side of your screen and see if you can donate or connect us with a vendor who will donate something totally awesome. Your connections and contributions will directly benefit the children of St. John's Lutheran School. And if you’re at your favorite restaurant, hotel or with a favorite vendor, please ask them for a donation for our auction (click here for our solicitation letter)!

 

We are asking that each student contribute an item or items to their themed basket. Room parents will help coordinate the collection of items and teachers will be asked to send out reminders about the baskets. Please have fun with the themes and make your basket special! If you prefer to donate money to the basket projects, please give this to your teacher in an envelope marked “PTL AUCTION BASKET” and we will purchase items. 

All basket item donations are due March 17th! If you have questions, please email ptl@stjohnschicago.org.
