Get ready to join an incredible community of people who are ready to do whatever it takes to help QAE kids succeed. Did you know the annual auction supports 65% of the PTSA budget? Social Emotional Learning. A school counselor. Reading Specialist. These are just a few of the vital services that funds raised from our upcoming auction pay for. Without your help, these important school service could go away!
What you can do to help…
Start collecting auction items! We ask all QAE families to donate at least one thing. But please don’t stop there! The more donated items and services you contribute, the more funds we can raise for our school.
Potential Donation Ideas (Live or Online)
Gift certificates to restaurants, spas, retail stores in our neighborhood and beyond are all sought after items! So when you go out to a favorite spot, just ask - businesses are happy to donate. It's a win-win for them and us! Are you a season ticket holder? Work in the theatre or music industry? Sports, theater and concert tickets are great items to donate. Own a vacation home you'd be willing to rent to a QAE family? Going on a vacation? Ask the hotel/ski resort/b&b/cruise for a donation to the school -- so many places love the idea of being introduced to a whole new community!Camps, experiences, children's classes -- wherever your child attends is a great option! Access to a priceless experience? (movie premieres, private parties featuring a famous chef or sommelier, tours around an interesting workplace)
Additional ways you can contribute:
- Donate an item to your classroom basket
- Sign up to bring a baked good for the Dessert Dash
