10th Street Preschool Silent Auction

A couple of months ago I received an email from my good friend Smrithi asking if I would be interested in donating a photo-shoot package to families with kids.   Her daughter Riya (here) just started attending preschool last November and of course Smrithi is already sitting on the school's fundraising committee.  Smrithi gets more done in a day than I can only dream about...

Every year, the school has a big party for the parents of the students - where they raise money for the school's scholarship drive (which allows kids whose parents cannot afford preschool to attend 10th Street) - how wonderful is that!

I'd never been asked to do something like this before and I was more than honored to donate my services to the silent auction!

My brand packaging finally arrived (see below), so I wrapped up one of my gift certificates in the chocolate box, tied a ribbon around it and attempted to make a flower out of the bow (re: bow - it's the thought that counts - right?)

Smrithi - I hope the auction is a huge success...   Thanks for thinking of me!
