Silent Auction Gift Baskets

Hickory Grove Christian School will be having their annual Silent Auction and Dinner on Saturday, November 5th, 2016.  We are asking our HGCS families to join us in helping to support HGCS Academics, Athletics, and Fine Arts by creating baskets from each grade as an auction item.  Last year we had abundant contributions to the baskets and they were a great success!  Please consider sending in an item(s) for your child's grade basket.  Each grade has been assigned a specific theme and a sign up list has been provided for specific needs (in a separate email).  All contributions can be given to the Elementary, Middle and High School Administrative Assistants by Thursday, October 13th.  Thank you!
