Dear MNS Families and Friends,
Welcome to the “MNS – 25 YEARS AROUND THE WORLD” auction, hosted at the Ballroom at Temple Israel, where once again we join together for an evening of FUNdraising. What a wonderful community endeavor to help ensure a rich and balanced educational experience for our children.
As you can imagine, the success of the auction depends on careful planning and coordination. Over the course of the school year, so many people have come together to ensure its fruition. My heartfelt thanks go to Adrianne Samuel and Alison Poster-Katz for co-chairing this event. Together they have made this yearlong process appear effortless, but of course we all know otherwise. Kristy Johnson and Priya Nagrani, thanks for your support as our PTA co-presidents, and to all who worked behind the scenes to ensure the success of this event, your efforts are greatly appreciated. Thanks to the parents, teachers and students who worked on the priceless class projects, now ready for your bidding. To my wonderful staff, thank you for planning play dates that the lucky winners will never forget. To all of you who personally contributed donations or canvassed for donations, thank you. We extend our most sincere gratitude to our auctioneer, Lucas Hunt, for agreeing to take on this very important role in the evening.
The catalog is full of a wonderful assortment of items and packages I hope you will find irresistibly enticing, especially when you keep the cause in mind. Of course, don’t overlook the wonderful class projects the children have put their heartfelt efforts into creating just for you. Above all, enjoy the evening chatting, munching, sipping, browsing and, of course, bidding and outbidding. Know that your support in this effort makes all the difference in ensuring that MNS continues to offer a uniquely wonderful educational experience to all of our students.
Have a lovely evening!
With grateful appreciation,
