I like large parties.

Dear Pilgrim families,

Auction night is now just more than a week away, and you might be wondering what to wear. Get ready to embrace your inner Gatsby. If it’s not your thing, come as you are, but for those who want to get your ’20s on, here goes:


Ideas for the gentlemen: Bowties, tweed, caps, fedoras, vests, spats, pinstripes, suspenders.


For the ladies: Fringe, sequins, beaded fabric, feathers, hats, strands of beads, headbands, skirts, dresses.

Try your luck on auction night with several raffles. Here’s what you could win:


JamboxJambox by Jawbone - Take your jams wherever you go! Win a Big Jambox - amazing hi-fi wireless sound in a cool compact speaker you can carry from room to room or toss in your bag! Listen to music from any wireless device or enjoy streaming podcasts and sporting events. Big Jambox even has a built in microphone so you can have handsfree phone calls or video chats with pristine sound. No more cords, docks or hassles! Donated by

Instant Wine CellarInstant Wine Cellar Raffle - Don’t miss this chance to bid on some of Pilgrim families’ favorite wines. At just $5 per chance, you can win four cases of wine and stock up for the year.

Teacher's Day OffTeacher Day Off - Think about your favorite Pilgrim teacher. Then think about how much he or she puts up with in teaching just your child. Then multiply that times, oh, about 24. Get the picture? Doesn't each one of them deserve at the very least a day off? Now you can help give them one. Tickets are $5 (or five for $20).

Split the Pot$20 Split-The-Pot - Take a chance and win big! Write your name on a $20 bill and drop it in the pot. If your $20 bill is drawn, you "Split the Pot". 1/2 of the money goes to you and the other half to Pilgrim!


Tickets are available for purchase online for the Big Jambox and the wine cellar and all raffles except Split the Pot are available for purchase in the school office. Tickets can also be purchased at the event. All raffles will be drawn and winners announced before live auction starts. Winners do not have to be present to win.
