The Snoqualmie Elementary School (SES) PTSA is pleased to announce the Raise a Glass to SES & Timber Ridge event to be held on Saturday, March 5, 2016, at 6:30pm at Sigillo Cellars in Historic Snoqualmie. Hosted by the Snoqualmie Elementary PTSA, the event will raise funds for the SES PTSA, as well as the new PTSA for Timber Ridge Elementary, SVSD’s newest elementary school slated to open in September 2016 at the corner of Swenson Drive and Snoqualmie Parkway
A silent auction and small live auction are part of the evening’s festivities. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of auction items with a total value of over $7,500. Auction items include priceless one-of-a-kind experiences, such as a family pizza party with the new principal from Timber Ridge or posting a birthday message on the reader board at SES, as well as amazing local artworks, pampering packages and wine-tasting events.
Paging Seahawks fans…. plans for the live auction include a surprise from Marshawn Lynch, too. SES PTSA President Diana Reul-Shapiro said, “The PTSA has been asked to do an auction-type event for years now, and we think it’s the perfect time. With about 30% of SES families planning to attend the new elementary school, we can fundraise for both schools now and ensure that Timber Ridge’s PTSA starts off successfully. SES is like a big family, and it only makes sense to give to our friends who will be moving schools.”
“Our auction has something for everyone.” Reul-Shapiro continued. “We wanted to make sure that the auction items were geared toward moms, dads, and kids – basically everyone who would want to fundraise for our two schools.”
Along with the silent and live auctions, attendees will enjoy a complimentary photo booth (sponsored by Staci Scott at Village Pediatrics), an amazing array of appetizers (sponsored by Smart with Art), and a commemorative wine glass (sponsored by Thomas L Macy Real Estate) to take home to remember the fun. Sigillo Cellars will also donate a portion of bottle sales from the evening to the fundraising efforts.
With very few tickets left, organizers say the event is sure to sell out. The cost of admission includes two glasses of wine, as well as appetizers. More info and/or online ticket purchases can be found HERE.
In addition, Mt. Si Gymnastics Academy is offering babysitting during the event for a minimal cost to families ($20 per child). Visit: BabysittingForRaiseAGlass to register. Pre-registration is required and must be completed by March 1.
