Thank you so much for joining us for a wonderful night at our annual auction. Nearly 250 parents, teachers and neighbors joined us to support Stoddert and celebrate at our campsite. Glamorous tents with chandeliers, fire pits and camp food delights set the mood for the night.
At the bar we had special VIP bartenders from Town Hall, Paul Holder and Hernando Cano, Mad Fox, and Stoddert dad, Orest Mryszuk, for craft beers. Stoddert’s own DJ, Coach Ricky, kept us dancing. If you weren’t on the dance floor, the outdoor fire pits were the place to be to enjoy the perfect spring evening. Whether you wore sequins with flannel or diamonds with denim we got our “glamp” on at Camp Stoddert.
The auction was more than just an incredible party, it was the biggest and most important fundraiser for the Stoddert PTO. This year, and thanks to the incredible support from our parents, teachers and the community, we raised $40,600!
The funds raised go directly to support important needs at Stoddert including: teacher stipends for classroom supplies, weekly transportation to the Filmore Arts Center, educational subscriptions, such as RazKids and iReady, maintenance and care of the school grounds, field trips, and so much more!
We are grateful for the support of our community and our major sponsors, Town Hall, Mad Fox, Relish, Twigz, Table Manners and Rocklands Winery. This year, we also were lucky enough to have Christian Hunt, a Glover Park neighbor and Stoddert grad, to serve as our auctioneer and MC to keep things moving smoothly.
The party would not have gone so well if we had not had the BEST volunteers ever! The class baskets and art projects this year were marvelous and not only gave the students a way to participate and get creative, but truly were unique.
