Have something you’d like to donate to Gala 2018?
Please consider supporting North Cross by making or asking someone you know to donate an item to the school — something we might be able to add to our auction or even a donation to the school. When you decide to donate to our event, your gift supports our annual operating budget. Each year, the tuition and fees paid do not cover the full cost of a student’s education and our operating budget relies on the consistent support and generosity of our North Cross family, friends, foundations, and business community. This support keeps a North Cross education as affordable as possible for all capable students who wish to attend.
Help the Gala committee by looking for items that will fit in the live (generally $1,000 and up) and silent ($100 to $1,000) auctions. The auctions produce a significant portion of the evening’s revenues. Our target date to have items secured is January 15th.
Live auction ($1,000 and up) items – The excitement is always high for North Cross home offerings – at the beach, on an island, in the mountains, a ski home, a romantic spot, and both family and couples experiences are attractive to gala attendees. Men’s experiences like hunting and fishing trips are also popular. If you or someone you know has a home to make available, let one of the committee members know.
Download an item donation form. For property and homes donated, please use this form to collect additional information including dates available (and blackout dates), the details of the home, and any restrictions there might be regarding its use (e.g. pets, smoking, etc.).
Silent/Online auction ($100 to $1,000) items – We’re already soliciting teacher experiences, and items from local businesses, and need to add to our silent auction offerings which allow everyone to have a chance to make a purchase and support the school. We’ve already secured autographed items, Disney World passes, jewelry, and gift certificates—help our list grow!
