One of the biggest money makers at the Hillcrest benefit and auction are the parties! This is also one of the reasons Hillcrest is the tight knit community it is. Hosting a party is a fun and great way to get to know fellow Hillcrest parents and raise money for our school.
There are many fun themed ideas for parties, whether you chose to have a “kid themed” party, or “adults only,” the possibilities are endless. Need ideas? Click HERE
Hosting a party can feel like uncharted waters; here are a few common concerns:
Nobody will come to my party… Throwing an auction party is the best way to get to know other Hillcrest parents. If you’re not convinced, consider hosting with another Hillcrest parent. Co-hosting with folks from other grades and/or a friend is a great way to make the planning process fun, split the costs, and ensure a great mix of attendees!
I don’t have some huge fancy house… Don’t let that deter you! Host a small group of kids for a sushi making party, movie night, glow party, or host at a bowling alley, or a public park. No idea is too big or too small. Anything goes.
I have an idea, now what do I do?… Fill out the party donation form found HERE. Choose a date, theme, and number of attendees. If you’re hosting a kid party, please specify age/grade range (ex: K - 3). We will be in touch to confirm the date on the party calendar, then your party will be part of the auction for all to bid on. Have a blast, and repeat next year!
