We are so grateful for this Queen Anne Elementary community. What a challenging, unexpected couple of weeks it's been! Thank you for supporting our school throughout this journey. And an extra big thanks to our amazing auction leaders—Mary Rea & Jenn Lovin for continuing to reimagine and regroup after each turn of events!
Thank you for participating in both our main Online Auction and our first Virtual LIVE Auction this past Friday night. Over the course of two weeks, more than 1,000 bids were placed on 200 amazing items that were donated by you, our local business community, or crafted by our children.
Your donations raised a phenomenal $84,000 to support QAE, Teachers and our KIDS!!
During our auction event, we would ordinarily have made a RAISE YOUR PADDLE ask at the end of the evening to help reach our funding goal of $120,000. As we ask this of you today, we would like to stress that any amount you can give will benefit our school. Please consider the money you may have spent last Friday evening on cocktails, a babysitter, an Uber ride or a new outfit for the event and instead put those dollars towards supporting QAE. With your help today we can reach our goal and continue to say YES to:
Prior to the Raise Your Paddle at the auction event, we were planning to show this wonderful video put together by parent volunteer Chi-Ju Chen. He did a phenomenal job capturing the spirit and energy of our kids! We hope you find it as inspiring as we do, particularly in this time when our community and our kids aren't at the school. We hope this glimpse inspires you to support QAE by making a donation to Raise Your Paddle.
Please share this with your kids and your family. Hope it brings a smile! And if you are able, please Raise Your Paddle to support each one of those kids.
Thank you for your continued support of our school. Our students, staff, and family community are relying on our help as we navigate through these uncertain times together.
