GALA: Request of the Week!

Our auction item coordinator, Heather Gahan (Puddleduck mom), is working with a group of people soliciting from local businesses. In addition to these items, we are continuing the tradition of auctioning off family hosted parties! These parties are a great way to meet and hang out with other families, all while supporting your school! Past parties include:

  • Game Night! 10-15 people, Enjoy and good fun and "Apples to Apples" with other parents...drinks and appetizers included.
  • Mom's Dark and Stormies 10-15 moms invited to drink cocktails under the stars with heat lamps with delicious appetizers!
  • Kids Cookie Baking Party - 6 kids invited to bake cookies with their friends. Ingredients and decorations provided.
  • Hair Braiding Party - Up to 6 kid/parent duos. Learn how to braid your child's hair, including how to do an Elsa french braid!
  • Homemade Beer Party - 6-8 adults. Learn about the beer-making process.

Events organized by the DNPA are structured to pay for themselves or to create a positive financial contribution back to the Duck’s Nest community and school.
