M3 Online Auction Results
mmmaude_online-square2014_2.jpg

The M3 Online Auction ran from Tuesday, March 4th through Monday, March 10th at 3pm.  When the gavel came down at the close, the auction raised $8700 for Armatage.

Ninety-two Armatage families actively participated in the auction, either by contributing to class reward incentives, or by placing the winning bid on competitive items. These families have been contacted via email with instructions for payment. If you hoped to win an item by bid, but did not succeed, and you still want to contribute to the cause,donations to Armatage through March 17th can still be credited to the Maude effort. DONATE ONLINE and indicate "Armatage - Maude" in the designation field.

Donations for class rewards were initiated and organized by the teaching teams. A few teachers and staff members also donated items for high bid. Over $4500 was raised strictly from bids and donations toward teacher-donations - a remarkable feat. Thank you, once again, to our fantastic teachers and staff for giving of your time and yourselves to support this effort. 

Many Armatage parents - as individuals or business owners - and grandparents also generously donated items for auction, as did other local businesses and friends of Armatage. We encourage you to let these people and businesses know that we appreciate their support.
