1/6/23 Special News+Center

Dear Center School Families,

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and break. 

Believe it or not, the Center School Auction/Potluck Dinner (our biggest fundraiser of the entire year) is only two months away. We are very excited to be all together in person on Thursday, March 9th for the first time in three years.  

All families will be invited to Center School for Curriculum Night (3:30-6pm) to be followed by the Auction/Potluck Dinner held in the cafeteria (beginning at 6pm). It’s a very special day, and a highlight of the school year at Center, for those who have yet to experience it. All are welcome – students, parents, siblings….

In order to make this fundraiser a success, we ask for TWO donations per family. While we’ve received many terrific donations, we have not heard from most of you.  The deadline for donations is February 20th.

You can fill out our ONLINE DONATION FORM here.

Remember, no donation is too big or too small – but here are some donation suggestions that we could use more of:

  • Restaurant gift cards
  • Beauty-related items: mani/pedis, hair cuts and products
  • Sporting or event tickets 
  • Fashion accessories

Additionally, our auction will feature the return of the very popular WINE PULL:

What does that mean? We need WINE DONATIONS.  All wines should retail for at least $20 per bottle.  You can bring the bottle to auction on March 9th or drop it off at the school office before then.  If you would rather make a cash donation and have suitable wines purchased on your behalf, that is fine too!  Contact Mark Margolis, who is heading up the Wine Pull at mlm2@cornell.edu.  

Also, if you haven’t yet, follow us on Instagram and check out items you might want to bid on!

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you!

The Auction Committee
