What is the Spaghetti Dinner and Auction?

The Rockwood Nursery School Spaghetti Dinner and Auction is a fun event to attend for the whole family.  The evening consists of fun and games for the children, a live performance by the nursery school children, a silent auction and live auction of some amazing products and services that will appeal to both children and adults, and of course, a spaghetti dinner to top off the night.  Proceeds support the Rockwood Nursery School.

How can you help?

This event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the nursery school.  All proceeds go to the Rockwood Nursery School, and it helps us tremendously with our day to day operations.

We are looking for large and small donations of new, unused products, services and gift certificates that we are able to auction off at our event.  If you own a business, it’s a great opportunity to promote yourself in the community, as many local residents attend this event each year and will see your product or service – you are welcome to leave some business cards too!  Or, perhaps you have some new products at home that you know you won’t use, Christmas gifts that you didn’t want but never returned – we would love to incorporate them into our auction.  Maybe you know someone else who would be able to donate a product or service?  Please ask on our behalf!  We would also be interested in hearing from you if you are able to make a donation to help us run the event such as spaghetti, pasta sauce, ground beef, snacks, treats or drinks.  Every donation helps!

Here are some examples of donation items we’ve had in the past:

  • Toys

In addition to our auction items, we will also have some themed baskets being auctioned off.  Some of the themes include:

  • Family Entertainment Night

If you think you may have something to contribute to one of these themes, we’d love to incorporate your donation!

Large or small, every donation makes a significant contribution to our school.

Donations can be dropped off to the nursery school during school hours, by emailing us here, or by calling the school at 519-856-4486.

Don’t have anything to donate?

We are also looking for student volunteers to help with set up, clean up, cooking, serving food and bussing tables, and to help with games for the kids.  If you’re a student looking for volunteer hours, there are lots available.  We are taking a limited number of volunteers so we need a definite commitment that you will be there and what times you’re interested in.

Please email us here or call the nursery school at 519-856-4486 to sign up as a volunteer.

We thank you, our community, for your support and donations for this event.

Sincerely,

The Rockwood Nursery School
