Dear SCC School Community,

The Bids for Boosters Holiday Auction, scheduled for November 16, 2019 at 6:00 PM, is the largest and most important annual fundraiser for Saints athletics. We have a target to raise $47,000 at this year’s auction which goes directly into funding our athletic teams. Please consider volunteering, serving as an auction sponsor, donating a silent or live auction item, and/or placing an ad in our program to help out with this wonderful event. Every contribution makes a meaningful and positive impact on our student athletes. If you need information on how to donate an item, become a sponsor, or place an ad please email me or Laura Levis   

The first 2019 Bids for Boosters Auction meeting is scheduled for September 19, 2019 at 7:00 PM at SCC. The following is a list of volunteer opportunities for the auction. For those of you who are veteran volunteers, thank you!! If you haven’t yet done so, please let me know if you would like to continue in the same role or if you’d like to try something new. For those of you who haven’t volunteered for the auction before, please consider joining one of the committees listed below. The auction is hard work but it’s also a very rewarding event that gives us a chance to celebrate our Saints community. I’ve included the committee name and a brief description:

Please forward this email to anyone else that you think would be interested in being a booster volunteer. Any level of commitment is appreciated with many hands making light work.
