To support the costs of our ECS School, we are moving forward with a silent auction just in time for the holiday gift buying season!  We are seeking donated items which can be sourced from your favorite neighborhood shops or music teacher, or gift cards for that favorite take out restaurant. Every family that provides a donation will receive 1 service for every $15 in donated value in addition to the ability to claim a tax deduction for anything purchased directly. Please contact Anthony Chang @ Fundraising@nvaecs.org to coordinate your donations. Thank you to all the fun ideas coming in already like a special gift set from the National Palace Museum Shop! Go out and support your local businesses by asking them to participate and perhaps make the donation directly to ECS. 


Donations will be accepted until November 29th and then we will provide instructions on the online silent auction which will run for two weeks to provide a contactless delivery just in time for Christmas!
