In the spring, we hold a silent and oral auction, which includes a raffle. Each family must procure an auction donation of goods or services valued minimally at $125, or make a $125 cash donation. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. Donations solicited from individuals or businesses can be used in lieu of a personal donation; be sure to indicate the solicitor’s name on the procurement form (used items must be approved in advance by the Auction Liaison). Raffle ticket sales–while part of the auction–are not part of a family’s donation obligation.
