Ask for Donations!

Trial-memberships or competitive discounts for after-school classes or summer camps are great too. Event tickets and wine always do very well at the Tomodachi Auction.

Create a "Clarendon's Own" Donation

flower redPeople love Clarendon’s Own auction items! They are always highly sought after, and there are loads of options: offer to host a dinner or cocktail party at your house, throw a kids' sleepover bash, organize a pool party, offer a week in your vacation home, etc. Maybe you can share a talent, such as rolling sushi, making kimchee, or even hosting a crafting afternoon. You can donate a professional skill or service. You are clever and creative, and we can't wait to see what you come up with.

JBBP families should have received a hard copy of this year’s Donor Form and Donor Letter. You can also contact Lina Garcia with ideas or questions about donations, too.
