“Hi there I’m Matt Lorch. I’m a news anchor at Q13 News in Seattle. You probably know that every year Cherry Crest comes together to host a fundraising auction to support our PTSA and this year we were going to throw you a HUGE party at the Hilton in downtown Bellevue because this is a really big year – this is the 50th Anniversary of this remarkable school. I know how amazing it is because I attended Cherry Crest from Kindergarten through Sixth Grade, and I was going to serve as your auctioneer. Unfortunately because of coronavirus we can’t gather right now and we actually considered cancelling the auction, and then we realized, “you know what?”, now more than ever it is so important we come together and support this community. And we decided to move the Cherry Crest magic online. So the auction is still on! Now, we can’t offer you the same, fun, live party, but we can still come together to show our support for this school and this community that we love. Things officially kick off next Tuesday April 21st, but don’t wait. Go to the auction site right now, sign up, check out some of the fabulous items and remarkable experiences. I’m going to be joining you next week with updates every day about things as they open up on the auction. This is going to be really exciting as we move it online. So don’t wait, go sign up now, and we will see you next week at the online auction.”
