PTA Announcements

Auction: Tickets are available for purchase on Eventbrite for our April 8th event.  All tickets must be purchased through Eventbrite in advance, there will be NO tickets sold at the door. Do you want to show some love for the awesome Lilja teachers and staff? You can purchase a staff ticket for them to attend the auction.  If you are unable to attend you can still make a donation to the auction.   You can purchase tickets and make donations here.  The deadline for ticket purchase is Thursday, April 7th. Purchase your tickets by Sunday, March 27th and you will receive one free raffle ticket for the 50/50 raffle.

Student Art Contest: The deadline for submissions has been extended to Thursday, March 24th. We are looking for student art submissions to be placed in our auction program. Drawings will be selected for the front and back covers and some will be placed throughout the program. The theme of this year’s auction is playgrounds.  We are looking for drawings of students dream playgrounds at Lilja.  All submissions must be received in the art contest folder in the main office by Thursday, March 24th.

Auction Volunteers: We are still in need of volunteers to help out on the evening of the auction. We could use another 4-5 people to help out for a short time during the event. If you are able to help out please sign up here.

Donations: Not sure what you could donate to the Lilja Auction? How about a bottle of wine or two for our wine wall? Maybe you drink red and have a bottle of white that you won't drink? Donate it! To learn how check out this flyer. Willing to buy some scratch tickets to add to our lottery basket? Those can be dropped off at our wine donation locations or sent in to school in an envelope marked: Auction Donation.

Our Lilja community members have a variety of talents and many have offered up services for auction (e.g. photography, lessons, etc.) or have supplied items for auction through personal connections. Do you have a special talent like baking, sewing or painting that you would be willing to donate; complete the form here.

If you are able to solicit donations, visit the donor list to see the various vendors. If you’re willing to contact a particular vendor, just add your name to the box next to the vendor and update the sheet as you hear.
