Chesnut Charter Elementary is looking for donations and sponsorhips for Annual Silent Auction.

Patch Article

On March 16th, more than 300 Dunwoody families will gather to bid on prizes – such as Walt Disney Park Hopper passes, a free year of Yogli Mogli, Tom Bass Summer Baseball Camp, and the very coveted "Dunwoody City Councilman for a Day" package  – at Chesnut Elementary's Spring Fling Family Fundraiser and Silent Auction. The Chesnut PTA and Charter Council are grateful to presenting sponsor The Mad Italian, as well as Yogli Mogli, Seiden Chiropractic Center, Life Fit StudioHuntington Learning Center, Kaplan Orthodontics and I9 Sports who have signed on to sponsor the school's main annual fundraiser.

Local businesses have until the end of January to take advantage of this opportunity to market themselves within the community, either by donating to or sponsoring the event.

Proceeds will fund enrichment programs, staff continuing education and facility improvements. Donors and sponsors gain visibility through the Chesnut Spring Fling webpage, listing in printed auction catalogs, marketing materials displayed at auction table, and logo printed on school spirit-wear T-shirts.

Of course business logos will cover the T-shirt's backside, as the front will leave room to display the students' wishlist:  "If I Had $1,000 to Spend for Chesnut...."

Businesses interested in helping out a local school and gaining exposure in the Dunwoody community can sponsor or donate to the event by downloading a form, or emailing
