Mark your calendars, get your tickets and make your donations of good-quality items now for the Griffin Foundation Auction!
The biennial Griffin School Foundation fund raising auction will be held on the evening of Saturday, September 13th, 5:30 to 10 PM, at the usual location in a circus tent in between the Grange Hall and golf driving range. This is a great event that should not be missed.
A number of Griffin Neighborhood Association members are attending the auction and have generously contributed items to be auctioned at this year’s event.
Tickets for auction and dinner, including two drinks (wine, beer, pop, or bottled water), are $45 per person. Tickets are available at Island Market and Sunrise Hair.
The Foundation is looking for good quality auction items. If you want to contribute an auction item contact Teri Weaver at firstname.lastname@example.org
The main item that the auction will focus on funding this year is an electric reader board for the school that will be located on a triangular piece of property the school owns, in front of the old mink farm where Old Steamboat Island Road meets Steamboat Island Road. This will allow easy communication of school events, etc., by the school to the general public. Other featured targets to finance will be a trophy case, as a “bid-an-item” where bidders just indicate the money they wish to donate without purchasing an item. The Foundation has a generous matching gift challenge to provide more money for scholarships.
The Griffin School Foundation is a Washington nonprofit corporation operating under the umbrella 501(c)(3) status of The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound. The Griffin School Foundation supports and contributes to the improvement of public education, and related needs, in the greater Griffin Community that are not, or can not be, support by traditional funding sources. These purposes are fulfilled by funding scholarships for Griffin School students or former students, funding educational and training opportunities for Griffin School employees and Griffin School Board members, funding capital improvements and equipment for the Griffin School District and Griffin-area youth, providing historical and other displays at Griffin School, addressing the special needs of Griffin students, and hosting events honoring our Griffin community senior citizens.
