                 Welcome to John Gill
                 Elementary School’s
             3 rd Annual Dinner Auction
On behalf of the John Gill Elementary School PTA, we welcome you to
our third annual dinner auction, “Let ‘em dance and sing!” The money
raised tonight will be used to fund the many academic and enrichment
programs that benefit the students of John Gill. Many of these programs
would simply not exist without the support and fundraising efforts of
the PTA.

The dinner auction has become our largest and most successful
fundraiser, and we hope to reach our $50,000 goal for this evening, all of
which will be used to support our programs. This fantastic event would
not have been possible without the enthusiastic support and generosity
of each of you and the entire community, and so we extend a heartfelt
“thank you!” to the teachers, families, businesses, and individuals who
have been so generous with their time and resources. We would like to
note that many of the teachers and staff of John Gill Elementary are
 contributing their personal time with donations of the extra-
curricular activities that are always so popular with parents and
students alike.

Thank you for being a part of this wonderful event. We hope your
evening is a memorable one, filled with camaraderie, excitement, and of
course, many high bids!

Sincerely,
Craig and Marlene Guinasso, AUCTION CHAIRS
ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE    PTA AUCTION    COMMITTEE
