Three years ago Barron Park Elementary school held their first Fundraising Auction in the Multi-purpose Room at the school. Fast forward to this Saturday and the 3rd Annual Dinner and Auction event is bigger than ever!
The Barron Park Elementary School community will come together this weekend at Michaels at Shoreline to celebrate Mardi Gras and raise much needed funds for the wonderful Barron Park students.
The extravaganza kicked off last Tuesday when Barron Park’s Online Auction commenced. Almost 200 items went up for sale with something for everyone from Summer Camps, to original Artwork to amazing San Francisco Bay Area entertainment and sporting experiences.
The wider Barron Park community have offered undying support to the cause with sponsorship and donations coming thick and fast.
This larger than life event is being organized by Barron Park Elementary’s energetic and committed Parent Teacher Association.
“We are so grateful for the support we have received from the Barron Park community," said PTA President Greta Olbrich. "Local businesses have been so generous and the Barron Park parents are in the spirit of both giving and having fun."
"Even our teachers are involved with many of them offering their time to run parties and special events for the students and over 30 of them attending the auction dinner," she continued. "We are excited about this fantastic event and are looking forward to having PTA funds to distribute throughout the next school year.”
The people who benefit most from this endeavor of course are the 350 Barron Park students. They are overjoyed by the prospect of the incoming funds. The money will be used to fund things such as various noon activities, student assemblies, classroom resources and school equipment just to name a few.
