Lima Christian School Benefit Auction

Lima Christian School is supported by the generosity and commitment of our current families and alumni.

In the 2022-23 Academic Year, we welcome many new faculty and staff, as well as students and their families. In fact, we have already seen strong turnout for our First Friday and Homecoming events. Now, we are looking forward to a huge outpouring at Lima Christian School’s Annual Benefit Auction.

Accordingly, you are invited to join us for our live and silent benefit auction at LCS on Saturday, November 5, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Childcare for children under 12 will be offered when the silent auction closes at 6:45 p.m. so everyone can attend the live auction at 7:15 p.m. 

For those who may be new to our school, the auction is our school’s largest fundraising event of the year. It’s also a wonderful time of community as we come together to meet the school’s financial needs.

Support the Event

 

The participation of our school families is key to this event. There are four key ways you can help assure a successful event.

1. Donate An Item

First, the Board is requesting that each of our families donate one new item for the silent or live auction. Alternatively, families could make a monetary donation that will be used to purchase auction items. In either case, please return this acquisition form with your item to the school office by Friday, October 28.

Examples of popular items needed for the auctions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Current tech items (Bluetooth or smart speakers, video games, earbuds, etc.)
  • Small kitchen appliances (espresso machine, panini maker, air fryer, etc.)
  • Time at personal vacation homes
  • Handmade items
  • Legos
  • Gift cards or certificates (local attractions, dining, and entertainment, etc.)
  • Baked goods

An Amazon list of suggested donation items has been posted at https://tinyurl.com/LCSAuction2022.

2. Spread The Word

Second, we encourage you to invite friends and family to the auction—and spread the word on social media and in your other circles of influence. A Facebook event has been created for the auction on the school’s Facebook page.

3. Serve As A Volunteer

Third, we are looking for volunteers. If you are interested in helping collect items, set up, tear down, or in some other auction-related capacity, please email the school at info@LimaChristian.org indicating your interest. A volunteer coordinator will follow up and get you plugged in.

4. Become A Sponsor

Finally, you can be an auction sponsor or distribute the sponsorship letter to someone who might be interested in helping sponsor the event. Supporting the auction provides a powerful way for you to express your support for the students and faculty of Lima Christian School and the importance of Christian education.

Thank you for your consideration. Please feel free to mail or drop off donations directly to the school, or we can also arrange for a donated item to be picked up at your convenience. If you have any questions about the annual benefit auction, please do not hesitate to contact the school at info@LimaChristian.org or at (585) 624-3841.

Thank you for praying and working toward a prosperous event! I look forward to seeing you there.
