Auction Buzz

WHITTIER, Calif. (October 31, 2017) — That familiar buzz is in the air for the Broadoaks Holiday Auction Fundraiser to be held from 7:00 until about 11:00 PM on Saturday, November 18 at the Friendly Hills Country Club.

All families have already purchased two reservations and raffle tickets. And, you’ve lined up those baby sitters, right? It would be more than fantastic if, for the first time ever, every family had at least one representative at the Auction. We’ve come close in the past, but maybe this is the year we’ll actually accomplish this long-time goal. YOU can make that possible.

And we hope you will also encourage your friends (all of them!) and family members to purchase admissions at

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who have fulfilled their family obligation to contribute items for the silent auction. If you’re one of the few families that has not done so yet, we know you want to contribute to our 100% parent participation drive. Please bring those items in by Friday, November 3. Remember this is our school’s only fundraiser each year and all proceeds go directly to support our classrooms and outdoor spaces.

The children are especially excited about the Auction this year. In each classroom, students developed lists of Auction donation items they would like to receive for holiday gifts – or just because they are so adorable! That grade-by-grade list of Auction donation and gift suggestions is attached to this email blast.

The children are always super excited about their classroom item for sale at the Auction and about the teacher experiences their parents can bid on for them. A list of classroom items and teacher experiences is attached to this email blast. We encourage you to make plans ahead of time if you want to “go in” with other families to purchase a teacher experience or other items at the Auction. A list of featured items and Voice Auction items will be sent via email next week.

Special kudos to Brandice Wight, who has served as the Broadoaks Auction chair for the last three years, and to her team of trusty volunteers who make it all happen. Thanks, too, to Mari Ruacho, who coordinates the event.
