It’s Time for Xanadu!
Look for your Xanadu Catalog to come home with your son next week!
Adult & Student Volunteers Still Needed
Volunteers Needed Xanadu Night – Saturday, February 4, 2017
We still need adult and student volunteers to work the evening of Xanadu. If you are not buying a ticket for Xanadu, please consider being a volunteer that evening. We need volunteers to help with check in, work in the various sections and help with item distribution at the end of the evening. Box dinners are available to volunteers who request a meal and bid numbers are also available. We need more high school students as well.
If you would like to volunteer, please email Mary Rhodes, email@example.com
Group Bidding Strategy for Xanadu
You can be the sole bidder or you can get a group together and bid on an item. Here’s how to bid on an item as a group:
- Before Xanadu, organize the group interested in bidding on an item.
- Determine how much the group is willing to pay for this item.
- Select a bidder from among your group who will use his/her paddle for bidding.
- If your group wins the item, signatures and bid numbers of all group members must be obtained for the Bank to split the cost among your group.
If members of your group are unable to attend the auction, but still want to go in on the purchase of the package, please have them call Ann Bender in the Priory Development Office (314-434-3690, ext 326) and provide their billing information over the phone in advance.
Xanadu Preview Party, Friday, February 3, 4:30 – 8:00 PM
Come preview the amazing items the Xanadu Committee has collected for our Red Carpet, and get your mobile phone registered so you can start bidding on the silent auctions.
Enjoy complimentary appetizers and cocktails, including a beer created exclusively for Xanadu 2017 called “Rebel Batch 2014,” a light English ale brewed by Priory dad, Peter Kraemer and Alum/Alumni dad, Charlie Garvin ’76 and Anheuser-Busch Brewmasters. It was mashed to be lighter in body and hopped for lighter bitterness to deliver a pleasant taste and drinkability that can be enjoyed for the whole evening. We will also feature tantalizing signature cocktails concocted by a fabulous Preview Party entourage and live music by “Findawg,” the Priory Dad Band. So don’t miss the fun.
No Dress Code! Come as your schedule permits. There is no charge for this event and reservations are not required.
