Mark your calendar! The 30th Annual From the Heart Auction Dinner is set for February 6, 2016!

From the Heart is the only major fundraiser we have at St. Francis Xavier School. The evening promises to be filled with fun, laughter and excitement. The Auction committee and several parent volunteers magically transform the gymnasium into an elegant dining area with an amazing Live Auction! The main hallway is lined with an array of silent auction baskets where you will be able to find several “must have” items. This is definitely a night you won’t want to miss! Whether you attend as a patron or volunteer, make sure you don’t miss out on this spectacular evening. From the Heart consists of a silent auction, four course meal and a live auction. On this one evening WE come together as family, friends and a school community to show our support for St. Francis Xavier School and its students. The money raised from this event is used to offset what tuition alone cannot cover. Without the support of our school families, local business donations, parishioners, friends and benefactors we could not have such an extraordinary event.

We ask that each family do their part in supporting From the Heart. There are several areas to assist; donating to the silent auction, supporting the raffle program, supporting “Class Baskets,” joining our solicitation team, attending or volunteering the night of. Please share your time, talent and treasures with us.

What is a Class Basket?

A “class basket” is a themed live auction package donated by parents and students of individual classes. Each class is responsible for assembling a themed Class Basket. Many of our classes have already been working hard on their package. Letters/Emails have been coming home listing what items are needed or the monetary donation amount needed to purchase items for the basket. Please help by contributing to the class baskets. With Black Friday shopping coming up it would be better to turn in your monetary donations ASAP. All donations count toward PIP hours. The majority of the money raised at the auction comes from the Live Auction.

The Live Auction?

The Live Auction follows dinner and consists of approximately 30 Live Items for guests to bid on. Ten of the Live Auction items are “class baskets” the remaining are donated or purchased by the Auction committee. We are looking for Timeshares, Jazz tickets, Concert tickets, any “WOW” factor item you or your business will be willing to donate. Please contact Lisa Rose, 801-966-1571 ext. 118 if you can help.

How can I help with the Silent Auction?

The silent auction is compiled of a minimum of 175 silent auction baskets. All items contributing to each basket are donated by businesses, friends and parents of St. Francis Xavier School. Donating a complete themed basket or items needed for the silent auction is a great way to earn your PIP hours when receipt is turned in with items. Please contact Halie Quintana, Silent Auction Chair, at 801-419-3156 with any questions. All donations count toward PIP hours with a receipt.

Can anyone help with the Raffle Program?

The answer is YES!!! We ask that each family sell a minimum of 20 books of raffle tickets. Our school goal is set at $20,000.00. Cash prizes are given to the Top 3 Raffle Ticket holders. We also have prizes for the Top Selling Student and Top Selling Class for the 6 Weeks the Raffle runs and we have prizes for the Top 3 Selling Families at the end of the program. Another way to help with the Raffle Program is to help find sponsor- either a family member or a business to sponsor raffle tickets or help with purchase of prizes. All donations are tax deductible and PIP hours will be given for donations. Contact Lisa if you are interested or know someone we can contact as a sponsor or donor.

Can I attend From the Heart or can I help that night?

We encourage all parents to come or volunteer that evening. All invitations will be sent out in late December. Simply fill out your reply card and return with payment no later than January 26. You may also choose to volunteer that evening as a server or runner. This is a great way to be a part of From the Heart and help with your PIP hours. There will be many opportunities over the next few months to volunteer with auction needs. Watch the Rainbow Reminder, eblasts and future Auction newsletters. We realize it seems like we are “asking” a lot of our school families to help in so many areas of the From the Heart Auction Dinner, but realistically without this event we would have to hold several smaller fundraisers and increase the fees per year to offset what From the Heart generates in funds. The Auction Committee has been hard at work already and we invite you to join us at the From the Heart Auction for a night you will never forget. Once again, we thank you in advance for your support of the St. Francis Xavier From the Heart Auction

We are looking for a volunteer to head up Solicitations, if interested please contact Lisa Rose at 801.966.1571 ext. 118.
