Framed Expressions – Auction Photos!

If you attended the auction, you saw the gorgeous photos that John Hay parent, Theresa Marzio took of your children.  These beautiful framed photos were a lovely backdrop on the tables.  Each photo was $25.  If you accidentally took your child’s photo and did not write down your bid number, please send a check to the Volunteer Office for $25.

If you were unable to attend the auction, but would still like to purchase your child’s photo, please email the Volunteer Office at by Friday, May 20th.  Photos will be printed and then available late the following week.

Wine, Wine, We STILL need Wine and Dessert Dessert, there’s STILL time to make a dessert!


Wine Grab — Last year’s wine grab featured 200 bottles of wine…and they sold out.  As of today, we only have 30 bottles of wine for the wine grab!  WE NEED MORE WINE!  Even if you are not attending the auction, you can still help support John Hay.  Bring in a $20-$25 bottle of wine to the Volunteer Office and help support your kids!

Dessert Dash – Another great way to support John Hay, even if you are not attending the auction.  If you can make a fabulous tart, cake or torte, we need you!  Desserts can even be dropped off at Michelle McFarland’s house Friday or Saturday…what could be easier?  We have 25 desserts and are looking at about 10-15 more.  Please let the Volunteer Office know if you can help!  Remember all proceeds support our kids!  Thanks!
