GEM Objective
To provide a Christian
environment in which
each child is stimulated
to grow physically,
socially, academically,
and spiritually
Train up a child in the
way he should go, even
when he is old he will not
depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6
The faculty and staff of GEM Express Preschool &
Kindergarten will be hosting our annual fundraiser. “Lights!
Camera! AUCTION!” on Friday, November 13, 2015. We will
be celebrating our 15th year of ministry to the families of our
community with a dinner and silent auction.
We would like to ask for your assistance with our event
by requesting a donation of a product or service from your
business. All donations are greatly appreciated and you will
receive a tax deductible receipt. The best part of the auction is
the variety of items offered. Items you can donate to support
our kids include but are not limited to a gift card / certificate to
your business, an item or items that represent your business, or
anything else that would showcase your business and attract
potential new customers for you such as services, tickets, or
By participating in our auction, your business will be
included in our program and be seen by hundreds of
community members. GEM Express has an enrollment of 150
students and is located inside Grace Church which has an
average Sunday attendance of 500. Proceeds from this
exciting event will help us upgrade classroom technology and
offset educational operating expenses as we continue to
provide quality Christian education.
We know you receive numerous requests each year so
we thank you for considering our request. If you are able to
contribute to this year’s auction, you may use the included
donation form, you may fill out the form electronically on our
website at, or you may contact us by
phone or email. In order to be included in the program, all
donations must be received by Friday, November 6, 2015.
Your support is greatly appreciated! If you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
