Shrine Schools Auction News

Dear Shrine Parent,
We are excited to continue “moving forward” with planning the 17th Annual Shrine Auction taking place on Saturday, March 7th, 2015.  The event is poised to be a “Knight to Remember” with a strolling dinner, hundreds of silent and live auction items, and an extremely talented band to end the evening’s festivities.

 This year, we are creating a full-color program that will list the items up for bid, but also serve as a valuable business resource with company ads and contact information.  This year, we will also include “family ads” and encourage you to consider being included as an easy and fun way to support the auction.  All we need from you is a picture and a brief message (if you so choose) to start the process.   (You can use a family picture, one of just your Shrine kids, or send a message to your graduate – totally up to you!)

We can format the message once we receive the photo, ad size and verbiage.  Please email your picture and message to:marybmurray1004@gmail.com and send payment to:

National Shrine of the Little Flower, Advancement Office
2100 W. 12 Mile Road,, Royal Oak, MI 48073

We’ve heard from some of you looking for or wanting to sell textbooks. A Google document has been created that allows you to sell or browse for books.  The school will have no part in collecting or distributing money or books, but wanted to provide a space for people to find additional resources for books.  The link is also posted on the website on the FOR THE PARENTS and FOR THE STUDENTS LINKS.
