Dear Queen Anne Elementary Families,
As promised, as the information evolved we would continue to review our decisions on whether we could continue with the QAE Auction as it was planned. In the few short days since our Wednesday communication, the PTSA Board, Auction Team and Janine had to make the difficult decision to cancel our Annual Auction event that was scheduled for Friday, March 13th. Based on feedback from our QAE Community, Seattle Public Schools, Public Health – Seattle & King County and additional sources we had to prioritize the health of the overall community during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The school still needs the funds we raise through the auction—our goal was to raise $120,000, which is more than half of the entire PTSA budget. The auction team will continue to run the online auction and ask that you take this opportunity to bid often and bid high for many of the wonderful things currently available online. Over the weekend, the team will be working on a new plan for many of the amazing offerings we were planning to showcase on March 13th. Please look for an email early next week with detailed information on what is to come. Know that everyone involved is working extremely hard to honor the work that has already been done by our auction chair - Mary Rea, procurement lead - Jenn Lovin and the entire parent community in the contributions and donations they have made. The support you give to the school means so much to everyone at Queen Anne Elementary.
Online Auction Extended
As the team is working on additional details we will be extending the current online auction until Thursday, March 12th at noon. We will be adding and highlighting additional items throughout the next couple of days. All bids will remain open till then. So please check out all the items and bid now...
Thank you for your ongoing support and for your understanding in this unprecedented set of events. We're standing by if you have any questions.
