The annual Madeleine Auction & Crab Feed is coming – pandemic edition! We’re doing things a bit differently this year, but no shortage of fun and enjoyment of these Madeleine traditions.

SAVE THE DATE:

  • Online Auction: Monday, March 15 thru Saturday, March 20
  • Crab Feed: Saturday, March 20 … Pick up a delicious food kit and hope onto a fun Zoom gathering that evening!

The Auction & Crab Feed will help us replenish our funds for CYO, band, speaker series, Christmas tree lighting, Grandparents’ Tea, and many more activities that we all can’t wait to get back to when it is safe.

Would you like to donate a service or item, or be a sponsor?

We encourage you to be creative and share your talents! Your time is a great gift. The donation deadline is March 8. Please visit the DONATION/SPONSOR FORM.

Here are some donation ideas that can raise funds and be done safely…

  • LOCAL VACATION HOMES : Cabin, beach house, condo – these raise lots of $$$ for the school
  • UNIQUE TOUR : Do you have access to an interesting location to provide a tour for a family or small group (with masks of course). Tour of Pixar, Cal Stadium, a newsroom, city hall, fire station, a courtroom
  • OUTDOOR ACTIVITY (socially distanced) : Bike tour, scavenger hunt, yoga in the park, photography class for kids, outdoor board games, dance class, fishing lesson, boat ride
  • SERVICE : Time with a handyman, electrician, personal training, tax/financial planning advice, life coach, dog walking/boarding
  • WINE/SPIRITS : Create a curated assortment of wines, eclectic beer basket
  • HOME COOKED FOOD : Home cooked meals or baked goods
  • HANDMADE : Art, crafts, jewelry, pottery
  • OTHER: Class art project, gift basket, cool merch or products from your business, sporting goods, etc.

And in these Covid times, we can be creative with Zoom …

  • Cooking class for adults or kids
  • Beer tasting
  • Kid’s bingo
  • Happy hour/trivia night
  • Virtual dance class
  • Art class
  • Webinar: e.g. Class on photo-editing, tech class for senior family members
