¡Hola Parents!  It’s time to gear up for Fiesta!

We are looking for donations for our 10th Annual Fiesta de la Primavera auction, scheduled for Saturday, April 1, at Plymouth Creek Center in Plymouth.

The Fiesta de la Primavera is a fun gathering for ISLA parents and staff to enjoy an evening filled with food, drink, music and fun.  Part of the evening includes a Live & Silent Auction.  We also host an Online Auction prior to the event, from March 20th-28th.

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year—last year we raised over $50,000 to help fund the cost of seven Language Ambassadors and other PTO-sponsored programs/events.  For this Fiesta, we are looking to do the same for the 2017-18 school year. 

We are open to all types of donations, so be creative!  Donate items on your own or offer an item with other ISLA parents. Here are some ideas…

  • Tickets to a sporting event, concert or theater     performance
  • A week or weekend at a vacation home or     time-share
  • Gift certificates
  • Big ticket items (Wii, flat screen TV, camera,     bicycle, iPod)
  • Host an adult dinner party (always a big hit!)
  • Sponsor a group fun event (men’s golf outing, pool     party, backyard BBQ, mother/daughter tea, father/son camp-out, ladies     night out, men’s night out, card night, pontoon party)
  • Donate a valuable service (handyman, yard work,     painting, massage, tax prep)
  • Share a talent (knitting, art, cooking or piano     lessons)
  • Donate something from your business or employer     or that of a friend or family

Check out some other ideas at these links:

It is recommended that donated items be $30 or greater in value.
