The BSCO Board is excited to propose a new format for its Spring fundraiser, the Auction. We are hoping to hold the Auction at Top Golf in Hillsboro for a more casual, fun, and active fundraising event. The Auction will still involve your favorites, including raffles, adult/kid parties, student art, and the silent auction, but attendees will also get a chance to eat some tasty food, have a drink, and hit a few golf balls! We're excited to try a new twist on one of the community's favorite traditions and an important annual fundraiser.
Many of the logistics and details are already underway thanks to BSCO's VP of Fundraising Ellen Rothery. But we won't be able to get this event off the ground until we identify 1 or 2 volunteers to lead the Auction Committee.
The Auction Lead(s) will work closely with the helpful event staff at Top Golf. Fundraising targets for 2018-19 were cut in half to allow for a more casual event without a live auction. Sponsors and donations shouldn't be hard to secure given a strong history of donations and very organized procurement records about who to contact. And the past leads and committee chairs will continue their support and help the new leads transition into the role. We just need a leader to say yes!!
If this new format sounds interesting to you, please contact Ellen Rothery. The sooner we secure a lead volunteer(s), the sooner we can reserve the space and dates and get this fun project underway.
