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.
Donate a basket or item for the auction (in addition to the items you are donating for your class baskets). Each year, we have between 250 and 300 baskets, silent auction and live auction items up for bidding and winning. Families will receive 2 service hours for every basket or item they donate that is at least $50 in value. Families will receive 2 service hours for every $50 increment of donation value. If you donate a $200 value item, you will receive 8 service hours! All types of items are welcomed, from food and candle baskets to trips and hotel stays, tickets to events, even creative items like free babysitting, snow removal, and more!

$2500 Cash Raffle
This year, our “big raffle” drawing will be for $2500 CASH, with a second prize of $250 cash. That money could go a long way toward Christmas gifts, school tuition, and more! Neighbors, co-workers, family and friends are all potential buyers of these raffle tickets, which will be sold for just $5 each. We will be sending home a book of 10 tickets to each BCS family, and can gladly send home more by request. We are also asking that families sign up to sell these after mass at the beginning of November. Please mark your calendars to sell raffle tickets at your parish after mass, as we can sell A LOT during that time.
Sponsorship Opportunities We have established sponsorships at different monetary levels in our quest to partner between Butler Catholic School and local businesses. As part of our greater school/community partner initiative, sponsors of the 2018 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!
