Opportunities for BCS Families to Help
Classroom Baskets Each year for our annual Winter Wonderland Auction, every homeroom is assigned a themed “basket” that will be auctioned off in the Silent Auction portion of the evening. The themes for each homeroom are listed below. Click on the Basket Theme to access the homeroom letter giving suggestions for each theme. We ask that each student bring in an item or two for their assigned basket.
These baskets generate a lot of interest at the event, and can be great for the buyer to use as a Christmas gift for family and friends. You can find great items anywhere, so please be creative! If a larger item is desired for the class, a few students could combine funds to purchase the item.
You can bring in your items at any time–the sooner the better! The baskets will be assembled by the Winter Wonderland Committee so all items to be included are due to your homeroom by October 30th. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Allison Dalcamo at: Allison_dalcamo@slipperyrock.k12.pa.us

Sponsorship Opportunities This year we have established sponsorships at different monetary levels in our quest to partnerships between Butler Catholic School and local businesses. As part of our greater school/community partner initiative, sponsors of the 2017 Winter Wonderland Auction receive acknowledgement before, during and after the auction, as well as complimentary tickets to the event and other benefits. We value the time and effort that our Butler Catholic School families give all year. If your family business or someone you know would be interested in supporting this year’s auction with a sponsorship or donation, it would be appreciated! For more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donate a Basket for the Raffle or an item for the Silent Auction Do you sell Thirty-One, Pampered Chef, Origami Owl, Tupperware, or another product? A gift basket featuring some of those items (and your business cards!) is a great way to build your business. If you or your business doesn’t lend itself to contribution of an item, consider donating some of your own time or talents. A one-of-a-kind auction item could be an offer of babysitting (a great way to give a parent’s night out), shoveling snow, baking Christmas cookies, or helping with a birthday party! Program Advertisement Programs will be distributed to attendees and will contain information regarding the evening’s schedule, featured items for auction of raffle, and more important information. You can purchase a quarter, half, or full-page advertisement and showcase your business to all our guests.
