Annual Benefit Auction
On March 11, 2023, we will hold our 37th Annual Benefit Dinner and Auction at Bloc15 in Jack London Square in Oakland. This event features silent and live auctions and generates over half of our Parent-Faculty Club’s annual operating budget. Our non profit 501(c)(3) Parent-Faculty Club raises money to maintain or supplement essential programs like music, library, and teacher’s aides: essential support especially poignant during the pandemic.
Have something to donate to the auction?
The auction is a great way for the Thornhill community of families and local businesses to support our school. If you have something to give, please complete the online donation form or email us at email@example.com. We kindly ask that your donation promise be received by February 24, 2023 in order to promote it extensively in advance of our event. You can also send our donation request letter to a friend, colleague, or business!
All donations are tax deductible. Businesses who donate will be promoted on our social media pages on Instagram and Facebook.
Want to host a party to raise money for the school?
Hosted Parties are a critical part of the annual Thornhill Auction and raise lots of money for the school. The parties are not limited to March - they happen all year long, offer a world of creative opportunities for fun, and can be as elaborate or simple as you’d like. You do not have to be an experienced host or an extrovert to hold a successful Hosted Party!
These events are organized by a Thornhill parent, group of parents, or our teachers. Hosts share the cost of putting together their event, while guests pay to attend and all proceeds go to the Thornhill Parent Faculty Club (PFC). Let these past and new party ideas inspire you:
Want to host? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the party details. And if you don’t have all the specifics but just a willingness to host something, email anyway! We are happy to help you get started, connect you with other families to co-host an event, or answer any questions regarding this fundraiser.
