Horace Mann School Silent & Live Auction - Roaring into the 2020s!

Horace Mann School Silent & Live Auction - Roaring into the 2020s!

Watch your email on Friday this week for your special invitation to this year's Silent & Live Auction, coming up on March 20, 2020. The Auction will be held on March 20, 2020 at the University of Saint Thomas.  RSVP cards and more information on this fun, adults-only night out will be going home with students next week. 

Through the generosity of parents like you, the auction has been an enormously successful fundraiser for Horace Mann School. Here are four ways you can support this fun event: 

  1. Attend the event!  Tickets are $25 each. RSVP forms will be going home with students next week. Register early, mark your calendar and get your sitter on the phone!
  2. Buy raffle tickets! Winners will be announced at the event, but you do not need to be present to win.  Tickets cost $10 each and are a great way for grandparents and friends to support this fundraiser.  A flyer with this year's prizes will be included with your RSVP info packet (sneak preview: there's jewelry, fine dining and the ever popular Wall of Wine and Beer!).
  3. Host a Great Gathering!  Great Gatherings are organized group activities for Horace Mann students hosted by Horace Mann families.  Parents have the opportunity to sign their students up to attend these event at the Auction, with all proceeds donated to our school.  Need ideas or want to learn more?  Please visit the Great Gatherings website.
  4. Donate an item to the auction!  Are you crafty and have beautiful handmade items to contribute?  Have tickets to a game or show?  Do you or a family member own a business that could donate gift cards or products?  All of these would be terrific additions to our growing slate of items for bid this year.  And don't forget about the gift of your time.  Service donations like leaf raking, snow shoveling, home repairs and homemade treat delivery are terrific contributions. 

Have questions or want to discuss a donation?  Contact Auction Committee Co-Chairs Allison Broughton (651) 328-9062 or Amy Hannigan (651) 206-1402.
