IT IS ALL ABOUT THE STUDENTS

As I write this newsletter on the 25th of


March, there is much activity on the


Auction web site with some items already


sold out! There is an amazing group of


volunteers working hard to make this a fun,


worthwhile event. If you have not


purchased your ticket yet, please join us


now.


 



Our Students will take you to the main


page. Click on the REGISTER tab to first


buy a ticket and receive a bid number. To


bid, you need to continue on to Register –


enter your credit card information again


and set up a password.


 


Included with your ticket is a delicious


appetizer box catered by Tuxedos &


Tennis Shoes and your choice of a


bottle of sparkling water, red or white


wine; wine supplied by BLEND, of


course. We need to have a number to


the caterer by April 3, so buy your ticket


by April 2 to guarantee receiving a food


box.


 


After you buy your ticket, complete the


registration process: Bid on a delicious


array of desserts; Go to the AUCTION tab


 

and click Desserts under Category. Bidding


on desserts ends April 8.


 


View Auction items and bid by going

On Saturday April 10, plan on picking up


your Party Box at the LIC between 1pm

in the main hall. You can bid on items


using your cell phone.


 


Saturday evening, tune in at 5:45 pm and


do some last-minute bidding or click on the

Gina Cabiddu is our MC and Jeffrey Tritt is


our Auctioneer and Trivia at Home host, a


talented team for sure.

system, go to the “How to Guide” found in


the upper left hand corner (click on three


dark lines) on the Home Page.


STUDENT PROGRAMS

One of the goals of this Auction is to provide more experiences for Evergreen Elementary students. (When I was going to school, we called these “class or field trips”). Another goal is to put in place a plan to follow these students through Middle School. To accomplish this goal, we need to be successful with this Auction, as well as recruit some interested volunteers to plan and then execute. Please read Jan Prichard’s, our Student Programs Chair, message in this newsletter and consider joining her committee.

 

HIGHER EDUCATION

Based on your continued support we have been able to put in place a sustainable plan to award Higher Education Scholarships. This year we have set aside money to fund seven scholarships. Marcia Harris and her committee are reviewing applications March 22-26 and the Hawks virtual award ceremony is planned for May 19th. This has been a trying year, and student applications are down. We are hoping to find some qualified students for both academic and trade school scholarships.

 

TLF BOARD OPENING

We recently increased the number of Board members to manage TLF and there are several open positions. The mission of The Longbranch Foundation: To Inspire Collaboration and Generosity in Order to Promote Educational Opportunities, to Maintain the Area’s History and to Improve the Natural Environment. As you may know, we are a non-profit charitable organization with six charitable purposes affiliated with the LIC, a non-profit social welfare organization. If you want to know more, please visit our web site: mytlf.org

 

If you have any interest in joining us, please send a resume and brief explanation of why you are interested to thelongbranchfoundation@gmail.com or contact a Board member directly.
