The second annual Santa Monica-Malibu Wine Auction, benefiting the Ed Foundation, will take place on April 30, and we would also love to have a Franklin Elementary School Wine Basket as part of the event’s silent auction! Please consider donating a bottle that has special meaning to you – your wedding wine, a winery you’ve visited, your favorite special occasion bottle, etc. The wine should be valued at $20 or more. Please attach a note with your “story of the wine” and sign the label, and then separately provide a brief description and the dollar value of the wine (this can be printed from the internet). We cannot collect wine on campus but Jeanna Beck or Samira Poulos would be happy to arrange for private pick-up/drop-off. We need to collect all wine by March 31. (Click on Jeanna’s or Samira’s name to schedule a wine pick-up/delivery.)
Additionally, if you have wine that you would like to donate separately to the Wine Auction, please contact Ann Conkle (firstname.lastname@example.org). This could be from your personal wine collection or from other contacts who may want to donate. Last year, there were some spectacular wines and hopefully, this year will be just as successful! The deadline to donate directly is April 14.
