Civil Rights Activist and Trailblazer César Chávez said it best, “You are never strong enough that you don’t need help.” And we need your help! César Chávez is hosting our 2nd annual auction, Together We Are Stronger, on April 27, 2019 and we are asking for your help in raising funds for our school. Please consider donating a product, service, or gift certificate for our auction.
César Chávez is a K-8 school located on N. Willis in north Portland. Our community is thriving and diverse. Students of color make up over 80% of the student body and 50% are considered economically disadvantaged. Your donation will go a long way to support an equitable and diverse Portland. We are hoping to build relationships with local businesses to support and strengthen our community even further.
The families at César Chávez go out of their way to support local and small businesses. In return, César Chávez will post your business information at our auction. It is an excellent opportunity for you to support our school while building a strong, successful, and supportive community in the process. We are raising funds raised to cover the cost of a covered play area for our kids. Presently, kids are stuck inside when the weather is rainy. For Portlanders, this means our kids are unable to go out and play for most of the school year. Play is fundamental to students’ learning and growth.
In addition to a donated item, you may also consider becoming a César Chávez Sponsor. For a donation of $1000 or more, you and 7 of your guests will have a VIP table at our auction. We will include your business logo on all our auction marketing materials, which not only goes out to all of César Chávez ’s current families, but also neighbors and César Chávez alumni.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Marlon Broussard, Chair of the César Chávez Auction Committee. Thank you for your time and on behalf of all the families at César Chávez , we look forward to partnering with you!
