Dear Center School families,
Announcing the start of our Center School Silent Auction TODAY….which will run through Friday, April 23rd!
To participate in the auction, go here and click on “get started” to set up your account.
Please see attached flier for more details… but there are loads of exciting items in our SILENT AUCTION (from a luxurious stay in Miami, VIP show tickets, Giants tickets, a virtual comedy show, a sailing expedition down the Hudson River to gift cards for neighborhood favorites like Levain & Shake Shack). And, don’t forget – you can also bid on a chance for your child to go on unforgettable day trips to the Rockaways and Coney Island with Center School teachers.
***Please note: there are three VIP ticket packages at the Shed (that are impossible to buy!) and are coming up soon so please pay attention to the dates.
Also, Center’s School ever-popular TEACHER RAFFLES are for sale here too. $2 per raffle for a chance for your child to win a unique experience with a Center School Teacher. For 5th grade parents, ask your children which teacher raffles they would like you to buy… and please buy LOTS of these raffles. Every $2 is another chance to win!
Last but not least, in this unusual and challenging year for fundraising, please consider making a PADDLE RAISE DONATION in our silent auction. Center School needs these funds now more than ever to support our computer teacher, teaching fellows, enrichment programs like theater arts, technology and much more!
And, you can still DONATE AUCTION ITEMS as the auction is ongoing… so send any items our way.
Please, please bid away…. and reach out with any questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support!

Dear Center School Families and Community,
We’re reaching out to ask for your help as we continue fundraising for our amazing Center School during this challenging year. While we sadly won’t be holding our traditional auction and potluck dinner, we are working on a couple of other community events and fundraising ideas.
Which is where you all come in….
While we won’t have a full-scale auction, we are planning on a silent auction online that will include the famous and favorite TEACHER RAFFLES along with a few other special items. If anyone has connections and can donate the following (just some ideas to get you thinking), it would be much appreciated:
- sporting tickets (for when sports games re-open!)
- show tickets
- a vacation/weekend house that you can donate a weekend/week stay
- any kind of virtual experience with a celebrity (zoom class with a famous chef, workout with a celeb trainer, chat with a TikTok star for our kids, etc)
THANK YOU in advance for anything you can contribute and stand by for more details on our silent auction and teacher raffle. The deadline to donate items is March 26, 2021.
Please let us know if you have any questions. You can email us at: email@example.com
