Auction & Donations

The Success of the Gala is dependent on hundreds of generous auction donors from the surrounding business community and the SMA Community alike. We are so grateful to be in the company of businesses and families that supports local education and demonstrate their belief in our students with continued generosity, in good times and in bad. If you are in a position to support our efforts of helping families in need of financial aid with a donation to our silent auction, we would greatly appreciate it.

Auction donations are due to the advancement office by April 6, 2022.

Every item must be accompanied by an Auction Item Donation Form.

$2,500 Tuition Voucher for $25 Gift Cards

Although we have a very generous business community, donations from the SMA community play a large role in the success of the silent auction. In 2021, over 50 families donated over $5,000 worth of gift cards and bottles of wine which propelled our silent auction to raise a record-breaking $122,515! We can't wait to see what our amazing community does this year!  Starting on March 1 - March 4, parents will be able to conveniently drop off gift cards and bottles of wine, in $25 increments, at morning carline. For each donation valued at $25, the donor will be entered into a drawing to win a $2,500 tuition voucher for the 2022 - 2023 school year (ex: $100 worth of gift cards = four entries). Restaurant gift cards always have the best return on value but gift cards in hospitality, entertainment, boutiques, and sports also do very well. 

 

Wine Pull

We're taking a break from the Instant Wine Cellar this year and are excited to be hosting a Wine Pull at the 2022 Gala.

What is a wine pull? The night of the Gala you will have an opportunity to purchase a numbered cork for $25 via the mobile bidding app. These corks will correspond to concealed bottles of wine on display at the Gala. All bottles of wine are valued at least $20, but there will also be a good selection of wine valued much higher. Your goal is to choose a cork corresponding to a high value bottle of wine but regardless of your luck that night, you'll go home with a delicious bottle of wine.

SMA is thrilled to, once again, partner with Bouzy Wine and Spirits (at Orchard and University) who is generously offering a 15% discount on bottles of wine purchased for the Wine Pull and the best part is you don't even have to go in! Just call Bouzy at (303) 798-4357 and they will take your order, fill out the donation form and hold each bottle for SMA until just before the Gala.

Can't make it to Bouzy?
Donations from other stores or your personal collection will be accepted. Drop off your favorite bottles of wine during the gift card/wine bottle drive March 1-4, 2022, or to your child's school division with a completed donation form.

Hosted/Sign-up Parties

What are Hosted Parties? They are “sign-up” events that parents, or a group of parents, agree to host for as many people as they find appropriate for the specific activity/party. Attendees can be adults, kids or a combination of the two. You choose the place and all the details; the maximum number of people, who can attend, and the price per attendee. Costs incurred for parties are covered by the host(s). 100% of the money raised benefits tuition assistant and program resources. Hosted parties are not only fun, but also a great opportunity for community building and to meet other SMA parents.
