In 2011, the auction theme was based on the year’s art curriculum, Art is ILLUMINATION. We enjoyed a wonderful evening with over 1,000 great items for sale, stunning kids’ art, delicious food and great camaraderie. As we reflect and evaluate and are thankful for the $150,000 we earned for our school programs, the Auction Committee will be back in action after the summer to prepare for another wonderful event in 2012!
The auction is one of our two big fundraisers to support something we all agree upon: making sure our children receive the richest education possible. At Rooftop, we’re lucky to belong to one of the most diverse public schools in San Francisco, and one of the best. Thanks to the efforts of the entire Rooftop community, our children enjoy art classes, library time, a beautiful garden, performing arts, sensory motor, computer instruction, book clubs and so much more.
How does a poorly funded public school manage to do that? By pouring our hearts into Rooftop’s biggest fundraiser of the year, the Annual Auction and Children’s Art Show. We know – it’s a lot of work! There are probably easier ways to raise money. But the Auction and Children’s Art Show is about more than fundraising: it’s also a way we can strengthen our community by working side by side towards this important goal.
Our goal is 100% participation in every class – whether it’s baking a cake, securing a donation or accepting an auction job. It’s a really fun event, and we look forward to seeing you there!
With best regards,
Rooftop Auction Team Leaders
