FASHION SHOW 2018: HOLLYWOOD’S GOLDEN ERA – A Tribute to its Leading Ladies

Memorial Day Weekend – the unofficial start to summer!  Before you trade in the backpacks for the beach bag please take a moment to consider the great things our Gift and Silent Auction leading ladies are planning for the 2018 Fashion Show. Donations are being accepted for the amazing gifts and experiences that will adorn the gift auction and silent auction tables.  We need you to make our prizes fabulous and help our committees get a head start on what is always a busy fall. Check it out as we begin to slip into summer – it will only take a few minutes.

PreK3 – 6th grade: Grade level donation drive

It is not too late and is a perfect time to be part of what we hope is a new tradition. We are on our way with almost 45% participation but we can do better.  Make a donation to the planned grade level gift for your grade to our Fashion Show Gift Auction and Silent Auction today. This small donation ($10 – $20) is meant to capture a donation from each student to create a fun package listed from the kids in the grade. Send your cash or check donation (payable to Assumption HSA) in the envelope attached to the letter sent through backpack or any envelope with your child’s name and current grade.  Multiple grades can be sent in one envelope.  Thank you for your participation.

Fashion Show Silent Auction Spotlight:

Time on the Rhode Island Coast is a “Whale of a Prize”

Our smallest state boasts a treasure of sandy beaches that have given generations of visitors simultaneously relaxing and exhilarating vacations. The winners will enjoy a fabulous getaway put together by the Silent Auction committee including a stay in a newly renovated waterfront B&B, iconic restaurants and charming shops. Can you help us make this dream escape a reality with a donation? We are looking to include a $100 gift certificate to The Ocean House and a $40 gift certificate to The Cooked Goose.

Contact a member of the Silent Auction Committee for additional details or questions.  You can send your monetary donation (checks payable to Assumption HSA) with a completed Donation Form to school to the attention of “FS Silent Auction Committee” via your child’s backpack. Thank you for helping make this year’s Fashion Show Silent Auction the most exciting yet!
