We will be holding our annual online silent auction beginning on March 7, 2016. The auction will last for approximately one week. It will be held on our auction site at Bidding for Good. The online auction attracts bids from all over the country, so people both within and outside of our school community can bid on items to support Friends of Braddock!
Last year, our auction raised over $6000 for Friends of Braddock. We need your support to make it even more successful this year! We hope each family can contribute at least two items for the auction.
Please help make the auction a success by requesting donations from businesses you frequent such as your favorite restaurants, hotels, gyms, camps, children’s activities, etc. It’s easy — just ask if they will support Friends of Braddock by donating a gift card or gift certificate that will be auctioned via our site at Bidding for Good. Their donation is tax deductible and they will receive exposure on the site, potentially attracting new customers. Their support will ensure that Friends of Braddock is able to continue funding support and enrichment that LAUSD does not provide.
If you own a business, please donate a gift certificate! If you have a skill you can offer (i.e. tax prep, dance lesson, gardening tips, etc.), please consider donating your time. If you work in entertainment or sports, and have access to event tickets, autographed items, or “priceless experiences” such as a role as an extra in a TV show, we would greatly appreciate your contribution.
Click here to download and print our donation form which has our Tax ID number and mailing address. We also accept e-certificates, so the donation form does not necessarily need to be completed if you or a company you reach out to can e-mail their contribution.

If you have any questions about this event, please e-mail Olivia Shores (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Shelley Luce (email@example.com).
Thank you for your support!
