SUMMIT AUCTION UPDATE BY ELLEN BASSETT, AUCTION COMMUNICATIONS TEAM

See you Saturday night! The decorations are done, the tablecloths are pressed and there are three auction chairs who are looking forward to a mint julep! Putting together an auction of this size takes an incredible amount of hard work from the entire school and the community. Chair Dianne Neal-Blixt says, “Our auction is the result of the overwhelming commitment of so many volunteers and supporters.” • Parents have worked on every aspect of the auction and volunteered countless hours. • Students have worked to create incredible class projects • Corporations have given generously

Night at the Kentucky Derby

Online bidding ends Friday at 8:00 pm Our first year with an online auction has gone very smoothly according to Auction head Robi Brath. “We really appreciate everyone who has registered to bid and placed bids. We love seeing the Summit community bidding along with bidders from who knows where! We already have bids totaling $4,200.” There are several items that have been highly sought after (see bottom of page 2 of this newsletter) and several others that are still waiting for their first bid.

IF YOU HAVEN’T HAD A CHANCE TO CHECK OUT THE ONLINE AUCTION AND BID ON A GREAT ITEM ... Time is nearly up! Just go to www.biddingforgood.com/ summitauction and page through the auction items. Register to bid with a credit card and then you’re off. It’s very simple to figure out how to place a bid or place a cap on a bid and have the computer electronically place bids for you up to a certain level and then stop. Thanks again and good luck bidders!
