St. John's Lutheran School Annual Online Auction
St. John's School Auction starts this Friday - November 12th!
While a major portion of expenses for our school is received from tuition paid by parents and from congregational support, the school must raise a portion each year through special projects, such as our annual auction. In the past we have been able to hold our auction as a live event in the spring, however, due to Covid and in-person restrictions we have moved the auction to an online platform both last year and this year.
Our theme for this year is "Happy Days." We have over 100 awesome items to bid on – many contributed from St. John’s families, local Elgin businesses and more! The online auction will run from November 12th at 6pm through November 19th at 6pm. All sales are final, and you must be able to pick up your item at St. John’s on Saturday, November 20th, (we do not have the ability to ship any items).
Here is the website for bidding: https://stjelgin2021happy.ggo.bid This website will not go "live" until Friday at 6pm, please do not try to go onto the site until this time (that's right, no peeking!).
We are looking forward to a fun week and hope you will join us. Please take your time and look at all the items up for bidding, we have baskets, gift cards, items for kids, your home, a smart TV and more! New this year - we have a trip to Disney World, and a Golf and Spa package in Arizona. This could be the perfect place to find that gift you’ve been looking for!
If you are not interested in bidding, we hope you would consider “Raising the Paddle” or making a donation to support St. John’s. Our goal this year is to raise over $20,000 in donations - can you help us meet our goal? This auction is open to the public, so please feel free to share the bidding website with your friends and family members.
We will be updating the school and church Facebook page regularly, so make sure to check out all our information.
Thank you for supporting St. John's!
