The Oak Mountain High School PTO is, once again, sponsoring the ”Eagle Vision Dinner and Silent Auction”, which is a major fundraiser for our school. Proceeds in the past have paid for improvements to the school, such as the PAC, printers, supplies, teacher needs and student incentives. The Auction and Dinner will be held on March 4, 2017. Tickets include dinner, entertainment by our students and the much-anticipated Silent Auction. And let’s not forget – door prizes!
If you have any items to donate for the auction, please contact Linda Ambrose or Julie Holstad. We need items for our “grab bags” (mystery goodies sold for $20 each (which have always been popular) as well as new or “gently used items”, beach or vacation condos, golf games, etc.
This year, we also have a need for new volunteers to assist with contacting donors for the auction, selling tickets, setting up and cleaning up, arranging the food and entertainment and making the baskets for the auction. We had many of our volunteers from last year “retire” this year after their last child graduated from OMHS so the need is great! We split up the work and you volunteer as your time allows. It is a good opportunity to get involved in your school and meet other parents! We especially encourage parents of Freshmen and Sophomores to GET INVOLVED! This is a fun fundraiser and very important for our school – We cannot do it without our parents.
Please contact Julie Holstad or Linda Ambrose and get involved today!!
