GET JAZZED FOR THE GREAT WESTERLY CREEK AUCTION
Dear Westerly Creek Families,
The Annual Auction is our biggest FUNdraiser of the year and the money raised from the auction continues to support our much needed specials programs. Without the generous giving from our families, these important and enriching programs would not exist. That's why your participation in the auction is so vital!
Family donations are the bread and butter of the auction. In other words, the wonderful items, services, and experiences that YOU donate are those very things that other families bid on at auction. We need EVERY FAMILY to make a donation and those items will either go into the silent or live auction on March 22nd. Items don't have to be pricey but they should be something you think another family would enjoy. These items can include gift certificates to restaurants, bottles of wine (with a minimum price point of $20), or tickets to entertainment venues/experiences (like the Zoo, Children's Museum, Museum of Nature and Science, etc.). Do you have access to a condo in the mountains? Maybe you can donate a weekend for another family to use it. So, use your imagination and bring your donation to the WCE front office on or before Friday, February 14th!
Just remember that along with each item you donate to submit a donation form. This year's auction promises to be an exciting event and I look forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE YOUR CREDIT CARDS
This month my bank sent me a new debit card. There was concern my information was stolen in the recent Target credit card data breach. Sooo ... we just wanted to remind ALL our families to check your WCE recurring donation credit card on record. Hey, and if you're not a recurring donor, you can still get in on the fun too. Sign up now to become a recurring donor!
