Auction Day 3: Very Important Person (V.I.P.) Day!

Welcome to Day 3 of the online auction! 

We had a strong first day out of the gate Tuesday, but as of today only about 20% of parents have registered at the auction site. Make sure to tell your friends and families that there is no cost to register, and when they do, they will have the opportunity to win a $50 gift card at local favorite Mercury’s Coffee!

Today’s theme is all about making you and your child feel like a V.I.P. (Very Important Person)! From special recognition at school (such as a personalized street sign, bike spot, school brick, or scrolling reader board message), to rare access to “behind the scenes” jobs, these items are without a doubt the most hotly-contested offerings each year! Our favorite host Matt Lorch will tell you more about these unique experiences, and then be sure click on the buttons below to jump directly to those items in the catalog. See you there!

“Hi I’m Matt Lorch with Q13 news and your auctioneer for the Cherry Crest online auction. We keep meeting like this because I love Cherry Crest Elementary and I know you do too. So, today’s update is all about some remarkable once-in-a-lifetime experiences available on the online auction and it’s really all about making your child feel like a V.I.P. (very important person). Maybe they “rule the school” as “Principal for the Day” with Mr. Steere, or take on the role as “Assistant Principal for the Day” with Ms. Steadman. Or they choose the book to read and so much more as “Librarian for the Day”. If your child is an animal lover, they can spend the day with the K9 trainers and police dogs at the Seattle (ahem, Bellevue) Police Department. WOW! Or maybe your child deserves a red-hot ride to school in a fire engine with the Bellevue Fire Department. They even get to bring along a sibling or a friend and they are going to talk about that experience for the rest of their lives! Batter up! You can get seats with a view like this at a Mariner’s game. You can bid on two Diamond Club tickets – the best seats at T-Mobile Park with high end food, beverages and parking included. Full disclosure, I’ve gotta say, I’m a bit jealous – I attended this school many decades ago – it wasn’t nearly this nice and my parents never had the opportunity to bid on such unforgettable items while supporting my education. Man, your kids are so lucky to have a school like this and generous parents like you. So thank you for clicking on the online Cherry Crest auction.”
