This is our largest fundraiser of the year. This year alone we've committed funds to teacher requests and field trips that are over $14,000 and still going, this auction makes that possible.
So what is the auction? It's an online portal that offers 100's of items solicited through the hard work of many PTO volunteers. Items come from local, regional and national businesses generous enough to provide us either a gift card, service or actual item. The auction itself is marketed to anyone registered on Biddingforgood.com (meaning people in CA can bid on items), so our reach is far and wide! The portal goes live tomorrow and you then have the ability to bid on the items.
How do I bid? Our auction website will be posted.
If you registered already, just sign in and view the auction, if you've never signed in before you will have to create a log in, after that you are able to view and bid.
How do I pay? Upon registration you will be asked to enter your credit card number, this year we will be only accepting paying this way. There will be a day/time to pick up items or we will mail them out. There are some larger items that will have to be picked up in person and those are listed as such on the auction website/listing.
Can I share this others? Absolutely, and please do. This is open to anyone, items will be shipped out (unless noted on the item listing) and credit card payment is the form of payment.
What items do you have? We have so many items you'll have to visit the auction to look through them all, but the categories are:
Summer Camps/Vacation Camps
Lowell School Specific (teacher lunches, prinicpal for the day, graduation seating)
Museum and entertainment admissions
Family activities and experiences
Health & Fitness
