2011 Steck PTA Auction a Success!
Dear Parents and Other Steck Supporters,
Thank you all for an amazingly successful auction. Our community truly Stepped-up-for-Steck! The preliminary numbers indicate that we raised over $93,000.00 in gross revenue for the school. This is a record! The event was well attended and everyone reported having a wonderful time.
The money you helped raise will pay a portion of the salaries for our paraprofessionals, class size reduction teachers, technology teacher and reading intervention teacher. Within these positions every child at Steck benefits from your generosity.
Christy and I, again, want to thank our auction chairs; Kim Durand, Danielle Martines, Beth Mechling and Ashley Elder. Their hard work and dedication made the evening possible – and exceeded everyone’s expectations.
Special thanks also go to Victor Arango and Jeannine Dillion who used their professional expertise and spent myriad hours collecting video footage for the Steck Heartstrings video. Stay tuned for more information on how to get access to the video.
There were many who helped behind the scenes as well. A huge thank you to Kevin Mercado for Computer Operations, Lyssa Krumholz for Volunteer Coordination, Beth Parker for Design, Michele Brown for Sponsorships, Denise Briere, Julie Rosen and Mary Stromberg for Inventory Management, Amy Smeester for Catalog Layout, and Dale Pope-Elkington for the gorgeous flower arrangements. We also could not have held the event without the help of the many volunteers who helped with set-up, check-in/out and clean-up; too many to list individually, but their efforts were greatly appreciated.
We also want to thank Matt Cahir for serving as our auctioneer for the evening. His enthusiasm and energy was inspiring and encouraged the highest bids! The silent and live auction items were high quality and went for record setting amounts, making Matt’s job much easier. Finally, thank you to every parent, teacher and community supporter who donated the fabulous goods, services and their time for the auction, including all of the class art project coordinators!
Thank you all for ‘Stepping Up for Steck’!
