Should I attend?
Absolutely! It's a fun evening, a great way to meet other parents, and more importantly, directly benefits our "little gnomes." Purchase tickets here.
Can I sit with my "Squad"?
Sure! Tables for 12 can be reserved so you are guaranteed to sit with your friends. Reserve your table here.
How can I be a Top broadcaster?
You can help us put together amazing getaways by donating vacation homes, travel awards, or even "magic rabbit ears" (ahem, cash) to help crowd fund an escape. You can host a party for parents or a party for kids. You can donate a special bottle of wine or a certificate to a favorite restaurant or salon. You can contribute tickets to a sports game or anything else that strikes your fancy. For more ideas, see last year's online catalog. To make a donation, visit the Host a Party or Donate Auction Items or Contribute Financially webpage. And THANK YOU!
How can I learn more about hosting a party?
One of the biggest money makers at the Hillcrest benefit and auction is 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. Learn more HERE.
Can I help with the event?
We'd love it! Contact Meghan Langston or Laura Todd (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What's up with the costumes?
Most parents wear costumes to the Benefit, some exceptionally imaginative. Guessing who will win "best dressed" is always a fun part of the evening.
What are the rates if I want to stay overnight at the Claremont?
Your best bet is to call the Claremont Hotel directly (510-843-3000), and let them know you're with Hillcrest.
What if I have more questions?
Contact your televised hosts, Meghan Langston or Laura Todd at email@example.com for more information.
