Auction Donation Deadline Extended to Tuesday February 16

The auction committee is still seeking auction donations. The deadline has been extended to Tuesday, February 16!

Interested, but stumped for ideas? The Graff/Helft family recently submitted four donations – one from each member of the family: Miguel donated a new iPod shuffle, Sam donated two Oakland’ A’s tickets, Avi (11 year-old Chabot alum) is offering 2 hours of tech support, and Rafael (Chabot 3rd grader) is offering to spend two hours entertaining your child (age 3-6) while you get work done around the house. Inspired? We’d appreciate your support!

Feel free to drop off any physical items in the Auction Box located in the School Office, or fill out this online form. We are also happy to arrange pickups – just email us here.
