Lincoln's Trip Around the World

8th Annual Live Auction & Basket Raffle

You're Invited!

Dear Lincoln Families,

Please join us, Friday, March 18th at Villa Cesare for Lincoln's 8th Annual Live Auction and Basket Raffle. Last week your child came home with an invitation to order tickets for this year's auction. Below are details outlining this exciting and fun event!

New this year, is our dinner tasting and pairings. This event will allow you to move freely throughout the ball room to mingle and enter our raffles.

Take your chance on winning one of our fantastic raffle baskets, participate in our live auction, win one of our pull tab prizes: three autographed Chicago Blackhawks jerseys, designer handbags, an Organic Bloom picture frame or take your chance on 50/50. Back by popular demand is our wine pull - where everyone is a winner!

Most importantly, please come and mingle with our Lincoln families and staff to support our children. The Lincoln PTO and auction committee have an exciting evening planned and look forward to seeing you there!
