Marshall Road PTA Launches Online Auction

The Marshall Road Elementary School (MRES) PTA is conducting its annual auction online this year. The auction period runs from March 10 through March 22.

"The auction is one of our biggest fundraisers each year," said Beth Eachus, PTA president. "With so many people doing business online, we want to take advantage of the benefits of online fundraising and appeal to the broader community outside of Marshall Road."

The MRES PTA auction catalog is available at MRES principal for a day, trip and restaurant gift certificates, dental services, and hot-air balloon rides are examples of some of the items up for bid.

MRES PTA raised about $10,000 with its 2011 auction. They used the money to fund a mobile computer lab for the students. The PTA plans to use the money from the 2012 auction to fund

field trips and provide student scholarships to help pay for extracurricular school activities.
