Auction DONATIONS wanted for the upcoming Mayer Magnet Benefit!

FOM Auction Items

Benefit Details – The Benefit is on Friday, March 31st from 7pm – 11pm at Salvatore’s Ristorante and will include a dinner buffet, two premium open bars, dancing and a live/silent auction!

Online Auction – Starting on Wednesday, March 22nd all families, whether attending the Benefit or not, will have a chance to bid on (and win!) exciting items. Our online auction will showcase fantastic packages, including vacations, staycations, restaurant gift certificates, tickets to sporting events and concerts, and much more!

Donations Needed! – In order to make our auction a success, we need YOUR HELP! We are currently collecting items for the Live and Silent Auctions. We’ll take any and all items, including:

– Gift certificates for spas, restaurants, shopping or kid’s classes of any kind

– Travel-related items, like Airline Miles, Hotel Stays and Vacation Homes.  We are looking for  Southwest Airlines miles to make a pair of fabulous vacation tickets. We already have one Southwest Airlines ticket generously donated from a Mayer parent, so please help us turn this ticket into a pair!

– Amazing experiences for kids or adults (not limited to Chicago area), such as being on field at Wrigley, TV show tapings, tennis matches or anything fun you can come up with!

– Tickets to sporting events, theater or concerts

– Or…looking for something more personal? Want to interact with Mayer families off of the blacktop? Host a party – it’s a great way to connect with other Mayer parents and generate funds for the school! Theme parties (Dad’s Poker Night, Mom’s & Margaritas, in-home chef dinner parties) all work well!  If you are interested in hosting a party or have a fun idea, please contact Mandy Shaw at mandygibbsshaw@gmail.com.

To help make the process of getting donations easier, you can CLICK HERE to find the Mayer Donation Form. Then simply make copies and bring this form to your favorite local spots. Please contact Stacey Kaplan at donations@friendsofmayer.org with any questions or ideas.

It takes ALL of us coming together to make the Benefit successful. We truly appreciate and thank our wonderful parent community in advance for your help in getting great auction items donated to help raise money for Mayer!
