Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Please donate to the Festive Marketplace silent auction

festivemarketplaceFestive Marketplace is a huge part of the Parents’ Organization and Prep Parents’ Organization fundraising projects, and it’s going to be even bigger this year with the “Festive After Dark Cocktail Party.”

The silent auction is one of the greatest money generators, with all of the funds going directly back to benefit the boys. Recent projects funded by these initiatives include new furniture in the Upper School courtyard and the Prep’s Bitove Lounge as well as live streaming capabilities for the whole school.

We need your help with donations for the silent auction this year. Some donation ideas include: sports or concert tickets; gift cards; fine art; household items; airline tickets and vacations (even a weekend rental at your chalet); unique experiences; spa packages; celebrity-signed paraphernalia; services; and other items that would make great gifts. Smaller items are also welcomed. We have a creative team of volunteers that can bundle items into unique themed baskets.

Items can be dropped off at the Upper School reception desk. Please address them “Festive Silent Auction.” Please click here for the form and secure it to the item. This helps us ensure that you get proper acknowledgment for your generosity. Please contact uccfestiveauction@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

We have more than 30 great vendors lined up for Festive Marketplace, but we’re looking for more. If you’re interested in becoming a vendor, know a great mompreneur or retail business, or have a suggestion for a must-have vendor, please contact Yvonne Crawford at UCCfestive@gmail.com.
