Crestwood Caper and Silent Auction


**VOLUNTEERS NEEDED**

The Caper is THE major annual fundraiser for Crestwood Elementary school. Sadly, this will be the second year affected by the pandemic, so we won't be celebrating in our traditional manner. We would like to go ahead with the Silent Auction portion but need volunteers to help make this happen. (We currently do not have ANY volunteers.) We have a handful of donations that have come in, but need 1-2 people to help solicit local community businesses and organize the online portion. If you can spare the time and would like to help, please let us know.


We have also partnered with the Asbury United Methodist Church to use their parking lot to host a Drive-thru-Diner. We need 1-2 volunteers (or more!) to help coordinate and run this.


We DESPERATELY need your help to make these special events happen for Crestwood. If we don't get any volunteers we will have to cancel these events. Contact vicepresident@crestwoodCAPT.us if you would like to volunteer.


We are also still asking for donations for the Silent Auction. If you'd like to donate but need ideas, please reach out, any donations would be greatly appreciated! Contact vicepresident@crestwoodCAPT.us if you would like to contribute.

Thank you!
