It is going to be a great party and we hope to raise $50,000 to support our kids!

MOST IMPORTANTLY…. SPREAD THE WORD!   This is an amazing opportunity to meet other families, have fun with families you know, support the kiddos but we need your help making sure every family (especially those younger families and those new to McKinley) know!!!

We need your help! 

We have many needs as we plan this event. These are some of the areas where we need volunteers leading up to and the day of the event.     

Do you have experience with on-site event planning?  Logistics?  Want to chair a committee?  Chairs of committees will be given entry tickets and committee members will get drink tickets!  But remember, it is all for the kids!!!!

Please email Nina Jarnum () or Renee Mcardle () with your preferred area of support and we will reach out.

Host A Buy-In Party or Donate Items!

A Buy-In Party is a fun event one or multiple families host at a future date to help us raise funds. Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis to McKinley families. The host families cover all expenses. Here are some ideas for kinds of parties a family could host to get you thinking:

  • Tasting party (Wine, bourbon, cheese, coffee, etc.)
  • Game board night
  • Karaoke night
  • Cooking class (prepare your favorite recipes!)
  • Guided hike and picnic
  • Farm-to-table meal
  • Dodgeball/soccer/basketball game

Our Spring Fundraiser is made possible through generous donations from businesses and individuals in the McKinley and the greater Sonoma County community. We are collecting the following items to make our event a huge success and help support our students:

  • Restaurant Gift Cards
  • Services (spa, hairdresser, home organizing, tutoring, lawn services, etc.)
  • Summer camps
  • Wine and wine tastings
  • Event tickets (concerts, professional sports, fairs, festivals, etc.)
  • Retail items
  • Vacation homes

Contact Renee McArdle with your donations! We appreciate your generosity.
