Gleason Lake All American Carnival 2002

Silent Auction Theme Baskets

One exciting part of the carnival is the Silent Auction. In addition to wonderful items donated from area businesses and families, each classroom creates a themed basket filled with goodies to be auctioned off during the carnival. Your child's classroom will also have a parent coordinator for you to contact if you should have any questions regarding the class basket or the carnival itself.

A list of themes and suggested donations is listed below. You can also click here for a printable version of the theme basket list.
