Wow, what a fun havin’, boot kickin’, paddle raisin’ night! We want to thank y’all for attending the Country Nights: Blaze a Trail Auction on Friday, April 21 – it was a smashing success and we were able to round up funds for the best little school house in Seattle. We’re still tallying results but estimates so far indicate we saw a 14% growth in money raised over last year, yeehaw! As numbers are finalized, we’ll provide updates.
Congrats to all the winning bidders who showed their school spirit! Remember to login to your account to complete any online or live auction check outs and if you haven’t picked up your items yet, please contact Auction Co-Chairs Ann Sattler & Becky Aronchick to arrange for pick up.

- Don’t forget to check with your company to see if they participate in corporate matching and note forms should reference View Ridge PTA – please contact PTA Treasurer Gail Ticeson with any questions.
