The community is invited to a day of fun and magic at Precious Lambs Preschool 10th Annual Family Fun Day Celebration!
Don’t let the school’s small size fool you, this is not a boring handmade carnival. This little school puts on one of the best silent auctions I have seen, and I ran silent auction for large non-profits! Each year they have close to 200 items donated my local business as well as family and friends of the school. Prizes range from small gift baskets of food or gifts, to sports tickets, birthday parties, and vacations.
This event is more than just a fundraiser for the preschool, it’s a community event for the whole family. Family Fun Day features games for kids, lunch and a FREE magic show by Magic Dave in addition to the raffle and silent auction.
Pass it On Games will run from 12:00 – 12:45 pm. All children under the age of 10 are invited to come play games and earn prizes. At each of the four game stations, the children will collect stickers, they will take those full sticker sheets to the lollipop tree to collect prizes, and everyone is a winner! Magic Dave will perform his exciting show at 1:00.
There is a pizza lunch served for $2 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. There is no admission fee for the event so you can come and check out the auction and watch the magic show without spending any money if you wanted. However, I would recommend bringing your wallet, especially if you have kids because you will be impressed by the auction and raffle items, you may just find yourself in a bidding war!
This year’s silent auction items ranging from gift baskets that the kids will love with American Girl Dolls, Star Wars and more to vacations including 4 days/3 nights in Florida. Others include tickets to sporting events for Blackhawks, Cubs/Brewers, Northwestern and Michigan Football, golfing at Bittersweet, Heather Ridge and Renwood, and overnight stays at Blue Harbor and Kalahari resorts and more! In addition to the silent auction there is also a 50/50 raffle, $1/$2 raffle tickets for adult and kid prizes and the popular Spin the Bottle Game! Not like what you played in Jr. High, in this version $30 gets you a bottle of wine or craft beer of your choice and a mystery gift card ranging in value from $10-$30 from local restaurants.
There is no admission fee so families are encouraged to drop-in and see what the school has to offer. This one of kind community event will be the highlight of your weekend.
