The 2015 Silent Auction is just around the corner! We are so excited to raise funds to support our classrooms, teachers and students! Come to the Carnival on Oct 24th from 10:00-3:00 and stop by the auction tent to find some really great items you won’t want to miss!

We’ll feature a 3 day/ 2 night stay at any of the 13 Silverleaf Resort vacations nationwide, local hotel stays, NASCAR tickets, helicopters rides, Ranger tickets, local summer camps, NRH20, Nytex Center, Six Flags, Golf Baskets, AT&T Stadium tours, Dave & Buster’s, Lone Star Park, Kendra Scott, Yeti and Big Green Egg items, spas, fun day out with your favorite Porter Principal and teachers and so much more!! You can also stake a claim on your own personal parking space at Porter Elementary, secure the privilege to fly your college flag all year long in the cafeteria, and shop a huge variety of restaurant gift cards at the “Buy It Now” board!

This is going to be Porter’s biggest auction to date, but we still need your help! We are looking for additional hotel/ vacation stays, tickets/merchandise to any major sporting event (Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks, Stars, etc.) and other “big ticket” items that could raise money for our school! Donations will be accepted until October 15th! Contact Mikel Siegmund at 817-680-8971 for info.
