2019 Horace Mann School PTA Silent & Live Auction: One Small Night for Mann, One Giant Leap for Mann Kids

The 2019 Horace Mann PTA Silent & Live Auction: One Small Night for Mann, One Giant Leap for Mann Kids This year’s Silent Auction will be here before you know it.  Remember to save Friday, March 8th to attend this fun, adults-only event at Harriet Island Pavilion. We need YOU to make the event a success and support PTA funded programs at Horace Mann!

  1. We need GREAT GATHERING hosts! These gatherings are important for our fundraising. More importantly, they provide a significant way to promote community building for students, families, and adults. Great Gatherings are…events, parties, or unique experiences generously donated and hosted by members of the Horace Mann community. They are attended by Horace Mann parents, students, teachers and staff or, in some cases, all. Past events included a Ladies night out, a Can Can Wonderland golf event, a Wine and Cheese night, a Tapas cooking party, and a Kindergarten Movie night. You can do any novelty-themed party.  What might you do? The ideas are endless and creativity is encouraged.
  2. Donating your TALENT OR SERVICE is a great way to contribute to the event.  A few great ideas from past events: donate lawn mowing or yard cleanup…donate a family car wash…offer your expertise as a graphic designer, plumber or electrician…offer to babysit…provide a dessert of the month…No donation is too small.
  3. We are collecting donations of adult beverages to be raffled for our WALL OF ADULT BEVERAGES.  Donations can be dropped in the school office.
  4. Do you have a small business or a service that could use an ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITY?  The Auction Catalog is the perfect way to market to the Horace Mann community! $25 buys a business card size ad, $50 for a half page, and $100 for a full page!  A great way to promote!
