On Saturday, March 21 the Auction committee invites you to celebrate Color. This year’s auction theme will transport you to India where we will become enchanted with the sights and sounds of Bollywood! Join us as we will transform the Greenwood Gym into a kaleidoscope of mesmerizing hues of blues, yellows, magentas, greens and violets.
Our dinner this year will be catered by Lotus Cuisine of India located in downtown San Rafael. At Lotus they specialize in Vegan and Gluten free delicacies. They only use homemade organic ghee (clarified butter) and the finest organic and local ingredients in all of their cooking.
We encourage all to wear traditional Saree, kurta, sherwani, ghagra choli, salwar kameez or churidaar kurta. Here are a few links for you to purchase or rent festival attire.
All of the rich colors and delicious food will be highlighted by our favorite DJ; Taylor Fogelquist. So, please mark your calendars and let’s come together in celebrating the colors of our community and the fundraising goals we need to achieve.
Our goal is to raise $125,000. Proceeds from the auction suport our valued programs, including Teacher Enrichment, NEST, Handcrafts, World Languages, Arts & Special Subjects up to the standard of excellence we expect at Greenwood.
