I need your help.

It’s school auction time.

I have a goal of how much I want to raise for my children’s school this year. I’m falling a bit short. So how about you all give me some clever ideas of who, what or how I can do something for the school. You know I do everything you tell me.

The auction is in November. So far, I’ve donated some pork, commandeered a baker for six loaves of yummy bread to accompany some of my preserves, asked a local winery to host two wine tasting events that I will make food for and the winery is also hosting a group of people for a morning of harvesting grapes which includes breakfast and lunch and I’ve asked a friend if she’ll bake her awesome cinnamon rolls.

What else? Would you pay to have a kids party in the country with hot dogs roasted on an open fire? Maybe throw in some country fun like hiding little toys in a big tub of grain, gunny sack races…….um, um, um, that’s all I’ve got. Why can’t I think of something else to do with a group of little kids? Oh, right because I usually just say, “GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY!” I don’t think anyone would pay money to hear me say that to their kid.

Tell me what you would want to see at an auction. Tell me the best fundraiser you’ve ever seen. I don’t have much time and I should have asked you all months ago, but this is how I roll, I’m good under pressure. Let’s hear it, whatcha got for me?
