Your STM Fabulous Virtual Vegas auction invitation was sent home with your oldest child last week. Registration is now open and raffle tickets and donations can be made via the site. Remember that the first 50 registrants to make a $100 donation will receive a swag bag filled with items that will get your at-home Virtual Vegas auction party started. Speaking of getting the party started, silent auction items will be available for review TONIGHT. This will give you an opportunity to scour the site for all the things you just have to have and get ready to start bidding at noon on Monday, March 8th.
As like most things this year, the Fabulous Virtual Vegas auction is going to look a little different than past auctions. First of all, this is an entirely free event and open to anyone - so if you want to share the link to the event with friends or family, please do so. Second, as the name implies, bidding for items is totally virtual but there will be a live stream event starting at 7pm on Saturday, March 13th during which time we will conduct a virtual "raise the paddle" and "live" auction along with appearances from special guests. Third, several local restaurants have partnered with us to provide meal packages for you to enjoy from home as you watch the virtual auction - they will be giving a portion of their proceeds back to STM. Please support these local businesses who have generously supported us over the years.
Don’t forget that the Stock the Cellar raffle is still accepting premium beers and wine to add to the cellar - your contribution will count towards your volunteer hours requirement. Mary McGreevy will be on site at pick up on Friday afternoon to receive your donation OR you can drop your donation off at the front office anytime.
