Wanted: Silent Auction Donations
The PTA is planning our annual Silent Auction to be held at the Spring Carnival on April 1st. We need your help gathering donations. Here is how you can help:

  • Do you own your own small business? Do your neighbors have their own business? Donating to the auction is a great way to get your name/service/business out to the Baranoff community. Ideas include personal trainers, photographers, hairdressers, artists, tutors. 
  • Do you have season tickets to a sports event and you don't plan to use them all? Why let your seats go empty for a game? Donating your tickets is a great way to help Baranoff...and get fans to cheer on your team!
  • Know a parent with their own direct selling business? Donating some products is a great way to advertise.
  • Ask your place of business if they would like to donate a larger item, such as a weekend getaway, or airline tickets.

Baranoff Spring Carnival will be held on Saturday, April 1st. Please email silentauction@baranoffpta.org.
