 Fun Fair Silent Auction – Donation Information

The Avoca School District Parent Teacher Council (PTC) will be holding their Silent Auction Fundraiser on February 24, 2019, at Avoca’s annual Fun Fair. Funds raised by the PTC are used to purchase educational supplies, school equipment, and support school events in our District.

This charitable event is truly a community effort and is only possible because of the support from local businesses and families. Each year we reach out to the community for donations of merchandise, services or gift certificates. This year, we would personally like to ask that you consider donating to the Silent Auction. Previous donations include family fitness center memberships, pool and amusement park passes, local restaurant and retail gift certificates, and sporting event tickets. Whether you decide to donate a $25 Costco gift card or Cubs game tickets, each and every donation is highly appreciated. 

For your convenience, we have enclosed a donation form that you can send back with your child to school. Please contact Silent Auction Chair, Susan Lovell at, or Mary Prahl at if you require additional information or to arrange a donation pick-up or drop-off. We kindly request all donations be completed no later than January 31, 2019.

Thank you in advance for your consideration. Your generous support will enable the district to achieve its fundraising goals.
