2019 Auction Gift Gathering Parties

Please consider attending one of our Auction gift gathering parties!

Want a chance to meet new friends, have a fun evening and help support the Mercy Auction all at the same time? Generous and gracious hosts are opening their homes to provide a warm and welcoming opportunity for you to become acquainted with other Marlin parents while collecting donated items for the Auction. This is a chance for people to get together, have fun, and bring a tax-deductible gift in support of the auction. Gift gathering parties have proven to be an integral part of the past success of our auction and play an important role in the acquisition of donations for the event. Auction gifts will also be accepted any school day from 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM in the reception office at the Visitors Entrance.

For more information contact the Special Events Office at 248.893.3535 or ggray@mhsmi.org.
