Traders Point PTF Auction
Apprentice Adventures Opportunity
Give a Student Real World Experience and Support Traders Point, Too!
We are contacting you as a selected Traders Point parent to invite you to serve our students and school in a unique way through your career or business.
Our school’s annual fundraising auction is just around the corner and we have been busy securing donations, planning and preparing for the event, Friday November 13. If you aren’t familiar with the auction, there are 8-12 items up for live bidding and hundreds of items in our silent bidding portion. The silent auction is made up of different areas of interest such as: women’s items, men’s items, for the home, events/destinations, food/dining, for the kids, sports/recreation, for the family, services, classroom projects and apprentice adventures.
How does this involve you?
This Is Where YOU Can Help!
The apprentice adventure is designed for a student to learn more about something they’re interested in-maybe a hobby or a future job. The adventure involves a student shadowing someone for a day or morning/afternoon. I believe you would be a good candidate for this. Each adventure is different and completely defined by the mentor (you). Some adventures will have restrictions (age/grade level, parent has to come as with, winning bidder and a friend, etc) but some may not. While our goal for the evening of the auction is to raise funds, we also want to inspire our kids through this real world chance to plug into life and the local community. Some examples of prior adventures include: fireman for a day; veterinarian for a day; apprentices with a teacher, businessman/woman, pro athlete, lawyer, medical field, musician/recording studio, artist.
What's the benefit to you? In addition to promoting your business to the hundreds of event attendees PLUS having your adventure item listed on our website, you are helping fulfill our mission to prepare and equip students to impact the world for Christ. You'll be blessed along the way, too!
Thank you for taking time to read this and prayerfully consider helping the auction and ultimately, our school! We would be honored if you would take on this adventure with the winning bidder. Remember - the auction is November 13th so act soon. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch!
