The JAMM Dinner & Auction is our school's largest fundraiser of the year. This annual, fun-filled evening is spent mingling with parents and JAMM supporters while bidding on wonderful silent and live auction items. All items have been either donated from local area stores and businesses or our very own JAMM families. The night also hosts a very popular Heads or Tails game, a Jewel Box Raffle, DJ and dancing.
The Dinner & Auction has set a goal to raise over $30,000. These monies will go directly to benefit JAMM and its students by helping to fund items such as laptops, playground equipment, arts, sports program, and to continue to grow and enhance our math & music program. To make this fundraiser happen we need the help of our entire community. There are many ways to contribute. Below is a description of all the events that occur during the evening and some suggestions on ways you can help make the event successful.

What are the Silent and Live Auctions?
During our silent auction, guests bid on items such as a night at local boutique hotels, themed gift baskets, golf packages, dinners at local restaurants, and artwork while enjoying local wine and appetizers. The live auction often includes such items as sports memorabilia, Family vacation packages to Disneyland, high-end jewelry and private dining experiences. Donated items will be offered through Live Auction with a professional auctioneer, through a Silent Auction via mobile bidding, and through a Raffle.
How can you help?
The Dinner Auction would not have any items for the silent and live auctions without the generosity of the community and our families. We ask our families to help by asking for donations from local businesses that they patronize, no item or donation is too small. We also have a committee that will make those calls and pick up items if needed. Contact Ngoc Mains via e-mail: email@example.com if you would like to help or have questions.
What are Sponsorships and Advertising?
Sponsorships and Advertising help us to underwrite the event. Sponsorship of the Dinner & Auction is a great opportunity for local businesses to get recognition and exposure with a targeted group of people. We have various levels of sponsorships to meet the needs of any business. Sponsorship packages include tickets to the event, premier advertising placement in our program and much more. We can use help soliciting these sponsors. If interested, please contact Emily Wilcox via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
