FIREBALL – Call for Auction Items!
Our raffles and silent and live auctions are the keys to our FIREBALL fundraising efforts. We need your help! Over the years, generous donations from Hillside and Nishuane families have included monetary gifts as well as a myriad of other items!

Monetary Donations
A financial gift is the most direct way to support FIREBALL. Family donations of $100 or more include listing in our event program. If you give $500 or more, your family will receive free event tickets and also be recognized on signage and in our social media marketing. And, if your company matches charitable donations, your financial gift to FIREBALL could double!

Auction & Raffle Items
We are looking for unique and fun auction & raffle items. So, put on your thinking cap…
• I know a celebrity and I can ask him/her for…..
