2017 Spring Fling FAQs

What You Need to Know About
Spring Fling 2017

What is Spring Fling?
Spring Fling is Friends of Coonley’s largest fundraiser, and will be held this year on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at the DANK Haus, 4740 N. Western Ave.  This 12th annual event includes live and silent auctions, raffles, wine & dine gift cards for local restaurants, a mystery wine game, and more! Your ticket includes food, beer, wine, soft drinks and dancing the remainder of the night away.

Why attend?
All proceeds from Spring Fling directly benefit our Coonley students.  Last year, thanks to the generosity of parents and community members, we raised $265,000 which helped provide teaching assistants, technology, arts programs and so much more at Coonley.  It’s fabulous to see the community come together to support our school – plus it’s a fun event to mix and mingle with other Coonley parents and enthusiasts!

What should you wear?

There is no formal dress code for the event.  Some guests like to wear festive or cocktail attire, others go more casual – in other words, wear whatever you would wear for a fun night out.

Do I need to be there on time?
Yes! Please plan to arrive at the DANK Haus at 6:00 p.m. sharp. The action starts early, so don’t miss a thing!  All of our amazing parties go quick and this year we have special events that kick off right at 6:00 p.m.  Don’t miss out by arriving fashionably late.  You’ll be happy you were there!

What happens the night of the event?
When you arrive at the DANK Haus, head up to the 6th floor to check in, check your coat and receive your bidder number.  The event itself is on the 5th floor where you will enjoy delicious food and tasty beverages while browsing and bidding on silent auction items,  teacher outings, and parties.  The live and silent auctions are the main part of the evening, so set your bids to win!  And, our special “Fund-A-Need” element of the auction allows everyone in the crowd to give to the kids – no matter what your price point.  Finally, stay after the auctions are done and enjoy dancing and dessert.
