AUCTION SAVE THE DATE
Every other year, the Lilja PTO hosts the Lilja Auction. This parent-only night out helps to raise money to support the two-year operational budget for the PTO. Through the generosity of our parents and auction attendees, the PTO has been able to raise over $40,000 at each of the last two auctions. We are pleased to announce that this year's auction will be held on Friday, April 6, 2018 at the Verve Crowne Plaza in Natick. This year's auction will take us back to the decade of our youth for an 80's themed night!
