Mark your calendars! Our first ever fully online auction!
If you’d told us last year the entire Glenridge auction would be online in 2020, we wouldn’t have believed you, but Glenridge has had to be flexible and pivot just like the rest of the world. Therefore, we’d like to invite you to join us from the comfort of your own home to help us raise funds for our beloved, one and only Glenridge. Please save the following dates: we will be holding an Online Silent Auction from November 4th until November 11th, which will be followed by a Virtual Live Auction on November 14th.
Online Silent Auction (Nov. 4 -Nov. 11)
This year all gift certificates and tangibles will be online and available for bidding from Wednesday, November 4th until Wednesday, November 11th. We’ve already got so many exciting items for you to bid on! Check out our catalog, which is updated daily, and make your wish list now.
Virtual Live Auction (Nov. 14 at 7:30pm)
The good news is that it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you can take part in this year’s auction. There’s no need for babysitters or Ubers and it’s up to you whether you get dressed up in sequins or you wear your sweatpants - or both! Log on to celebrate Glenridge on November 14th, and help us raise some much needed funds. Pour yourself a drink and join us at 7:30pm for music from our very own Kerry Yates and his band ‘Porch’, as well as Gayle and the Hired Hands who are going to get us in the mood for an evening of bidding! Bidding will start promptly at 8pm so make sure you have your fingers at the ready! Alumni parent Adam Zimman will be on hand once again to tell you all about the live auction prizes on offer and tempt you into raising your virtual paddle.
Virtual Fund A Need
Mame will be leading our Fund A Need appeal again this year and we need your help more than ever. Glenridge is operating at a loss this year in order to continue offering affordable programs to our families, and we are appealing to all members of our extended community to give what you can to support our preschool. If you cannot attend the Live Auction and would like to offer your support now, please consider donating here. We understand that many people have been negatively impacted by these challenging times, but if you are able to support Glenridge this year, we’d be most grateful. Donations are vital this year, and go straight to meet our classroom needs during this unique and challenging time.
Sister Mame Beer Available for Preorder Now
The Glenridge community is getting the exclusive opportunity to preorder Sister Mame IPA before the general public. All proceeds from Sister Mame will go to support Glenridge. Laughing Monk Brewery's IPAs sell out quickly, so order yours today to pick it up or have it delivered at the end of October when it's ready. Please note that if you order anything else with your Sister Mame it will be held until Sister Mame is released at the end of October. So if you want other beer right now, order it separately.
Use the password: sistermame
Plus, add the coupon code sistermame to get 15% off your order and Laughing Monk Brewery will donate 10% of your order to Glenridge.
