                                                I would like to welcome you to Valhalla Elementary’s 9th Annual School Auction
                                                and Dinner Fundraiser, “The Valhalla Derby!”
Opening Letter                             6    This committee has been planning this event since last August. It has always been
                                                the goal of the Auction Committee to try and provide Valhalla with financial
                                                support. It is our biggest fundraiser of the year. The hope is to help ease the
Auction Committee                          7    effects of the many budget cuts our school has faced, in order to preserve all the
                                                wonderful programs and resources our children have here at Valhalla. With the
Class Project Coordinators                 9    dedication of many individuals, countless volunteer hours and the generous
                                                donations from not only businesses but also the families and friends of Valhalla,
                                                the committee has been able to set in motion all the pieces in order to meet their

                                                entire Auction Committee. All of their names are listed on the next page. Please
Games                                      16   take time to tell them thank you for all their hard work. Without their dedication
                                                and endless effort this event would not be possible. I am very grateful for the
General Information and Disclosures        18   hard work they have put into making this evening a success, and I cannot thank
                                                them enough. I appreciate all of their seemingly endless time, energy and
Auction Rules                              20   dedication to this fundraiser! I also want to thank the Contra Costa Country
                                                Club and their banquet manager, Chris Balough and his staff, for making this
My Wish List                               22   event possible. I also want to thank Jeff Kasper for providing us his expertise as
                                                our Auctioneer and last but certainly not least, a big thank you to our very own

                                                community around us. Without the generosity of all the donations this auction
400 — Lucky Lady                           34   would not be possible, I cannot thank you all enough. As you browse through
                                                this program take note of the businesses who took the time to support Valhalla. I
                                                ask that, in gratitude, you patronize these businesses and let them know you
