If you’re still pondering the question, What on earth do I donate to the auction this year?!” you can easily select an item from our online registries at Macy’s and Crate & Barrel. We just checked both registries this morning, and many great items are now ON SALE at Macy’s so it’s even less expensive to buy and donate a cool item that we can auction off!  Here’s how to view what our wish list:


At the prompt type in “Sequoia Elementary” for first name, and “School” for last name. Anyone can donate from our registries: extended family, grandparents, out-of-town supporters … let everyone know!


Raffle Packets Going Home this Week

Filed under: 1 — KB @ 3:24 pm

Check your oldest child’s backpack this week for the February auction newsletter and info on our all-new RAFFLES!  We have three great raffles this year, and all parents are encouraged to buy and sell raffle tickets before the auction. Your packet includes raffle tickets to sell. Here are our raffle prizes:

One week in Mazatlan, Mexico! Sand, beautiful sunsets and the historic town of Mazatlan await you at the Oceanfront Inn. ($10 per ticket)

Instant wine cellar! More than 50 bottles of wine will go home with the lucky winner on auction night. Wine has been donated by area businesses and by many generous Sequoia families. ($20 per ticket)

Wii gaming system! Take home a brand-new Wii, for fun and fitness with the whole family. ($5 per ticket)

The great thing about our raffles is that anyone can buy tickets and enter the drawings — neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc. — and you need not be present at the auction to win. Need more tickets? Call 609-9205.

So go forth this weekend … sell lots of raffle tickets and help support the school!
