Masterman’s exciting 9th annual Auction event has a new name: Spring Into Auction! Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Saturday, March 22, 2014, from 6-10 PM, at Girard College. This year, our goal is to raise as much money as possible to supplement some of the huge gaps in our school’s budget created by the devastating cuts to public school funding by the district, city, and state.


We invite your donations to the themed gift baskets listed below. Feel free to re-gift any unwanted, unopened holiday presents!  You can also send in a cash donation to help us purchase supplemental items for the baskets; checks should be made out to the Masterman Home and School Association (with 2014 Auction Basket Raffle on the memo line). Please label all gift item donations with your child’s name and section number and drop them off in Ms. McGeary’s classroom (202) by Tuesday, March 11. All checks/cash donations should be labeled with your child’s name and section number and handed in to their advisors.
