Visions & Vines | Annual Auction Benefit 2016

Tickets are SOLD OUT! We look forward to seeing you at Visions & Vines, our annual auction benefit and biggest fundraiser of the year!

Saturday, April 16th 5:30pm – 10:00pm

Run by parent volunteers, WISE is committed to raising the funds for programs that are at risk due to ongoing budget cuts and supporting the teachers’ salaries needed to provide these programs. WISE funds are needed to bridge the gap between the limited funding the District receives from Federal, State, and Local sources and what it actually costs for each child in the District to experience a quality education.

Our schools are community funded and depend on parents, family members, business partners, and other community members to support the education your children receive at Corona Creek Elementary and Meadow Elementary schools.

Visions & Vines is our biggest fundraiser of the year. You can help us reach our goal to raise $100,000 and not only sustain but increase program funding that enrich the education of our students. We need your support! This is an exciting and fun way to help WISE, and at the same time have a chance to win cool items!

There are two ways you can participate.

Bid on items in the Online Auction
Starting on April 1, 2016, The WISE Foundation will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise money for our organization. The auction opens for bidding on April 1, 2016 at 8:00 AM PDT Time. We are still accepting donations to help build our auction catalog. You can donate online by filling out a simple form and we will review your item and be in contact with you, or you can turn in the Item Donation Form that came home in your Wednesday folders. You can also pick one up in the school office. In the meantime, visit our online auction site to view our catalog of items up for bid. There is something for everyone here. A couple of our traditional and most popular items include the student artful collaborations and unique teacher outings. Feel free to place a “watch” on your favorites, so that you can track their progress. This online auction is a fun way for parents, friends and family members to participate.
