Welcome Dear Evergreen Families and Friends: Welcome to the Evergreen Auction! Thank you for showing your support of our school by attending this spectacular event. At Evergreen, we strive to create an ideal environment for children to grow together into thoughtful, joyful, able, and virtuous citizens of the world. So it is fitting that our auction is a celebration of our children, our community, and our school. Our theme this year, “Sunglasses at Night,” highlights the spirit of fun and fellowship in the air. Planning this event took countless hours of work by a large group of dedicated volunteers. From decorations to catalogs, ticket sales, Love Notes, ads, food, beverages, and logistics, I deeply appreciate everyone’s tireless effort. In particular our Auction Co-chairs Cori Lathan and Prasant Sar and Donation Coordinator Anke Mann deserve special recognition for making this wonderful event possible. I am deeply grateful for their leadership, vision, and teamwork. We have many wonderful items to offer tonight. Please bid generously, as Auction proceeds directly support classroom programs and special projects—and ultimately our children. Enjoy the evening! Sincerely, John DeMarchi Head of School
