Dear Oakwood Community and Friends,
SAVE THE DATE! Clear your calendar and reserve a babysitter for Friday, April 12th, 2013 at the Hilton Greenville. The Annual Oakwood Auction Dinner & Fundraiser is a CAN'T miss event, and this year we'll be 'Rocking to the 1950's' style! It is sure to be a spectacular night of dinner and fun-filled events including a silent and live auction, chance baskets, raffle, dancing, and a special performance by "The Oakwoodettes." This year, mingle and enjoy the night without having to hover over your favorite auction item, thanks to new hand-held BidPal technology. You can bid for a must have item from the comfort of your seat! Want a sneak preview? Click HERE to see our very own headmaster and his wife rocking to the 50's!
Two years ago, The Oakwood School's Auction raised over $57,000 in vital funds. Your donations helped supplement The Oakwood School's operating budget. Our goal this year is to exceed $60,000 and for the first time this year to "make a difference in the world" by supporting local community organizations, GO-Science and the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce Teen Leadership Institute (TLI) as part of this auction fundraiser.
Your generous tax-deductible donations make our auction fundraising event possible. Every contribution impacts both the students at The Oakwood School and the Greater Greenville community. We are currently seeking support through donations of auction items, business sponsorships and family hosts of our event, and advertising in the auction book.
Thank you for your past support, and we hope you can be a part of this year’s 2013 Oakwood Auction & Fundraiser.
Very truly yours,
Angel MacKenzie, Auction Co-Chair
Sally Averette, Auction Co-Chair
