Last Friday, Zoey’s school had a fundraiser – Oak Creek Olympic Games. It was mostly games (of course) and a silent auction of class baskets and other packages donated from companies and parents. For the baskets, each class had a theme and parents would donate items related to it. Zoey’s class theme was a Baker’s Basket. (We bid on it but lost)
We had our eye on a firepit basket filled with s’more stuff, a game night basket (Zach wanted a Star Wars Lego thing in it) and Zoey wrote her bid down for a chocolate basket, which we ended up winning. So now we have a basket full of chocolate worth $130 that we paid $75 bucks for.
Lessons learned – don’t bid unless you actually want it, and don’t let your kids write their names on the list! Luckily Zach didn’t write a phone number down on the game night basket that was going for $200!
