There is still a way to support the 2016 Meredith Auction!

Dear Meredith Families,

         Perhaps you were unable to attend the auction…

         Perhaps you were outbid on an item you wanted…

         Perhaps you still want to make a contribution…

         Well, there is still a way to support the 2016 Meredith Auction!

         At the end of the Live Auction, we held a Fund-A-Need where guests made monetary donations to a specific cause.  The funds raised with the FUND-A-NEED will go DIRECTLY towards SCHOOLYARD IMPROVEMENTS!!! You may ask, “What do ‘Schoolyard Improvements’ mean?”

         Schoolyard Improvements mean everything from trees to benches to our ultimate goal of a soft surface playground.  The money raised from the FUND-A-NEED will go directly towards this NEED for Meredith School.

So follow the link, share with your families and friends through email, Facebook, etc.  No amount is too small. This Fund-A-Need will last until Friday, April 15.  At that point, we will reveal the total amount raised from the Meredith Auction.  I know everyone can’t wait!!!

Let’s build a better schoolyard for our children! We can do it!

Thank you so much for your continued support!
