Benefit Auction

Dear Voyager family,

As you may know, one of our 6th grade students recently lost his mother to cancer. To help the family, we are holding a raffle  and online auction for Disney Park Hopper Passes. We were given 10 passes for the Voyager Auction, however they arrived too late to be auctioned the night of the event.

We are hosting a raffle for $25 per ticket towards 5 One Day Park Hopper Passes and another online auction giving the highest bidder 5 OTHER One Day Park Passes.

In order to participate in either benefit or to simply donate to the family you must create an account on our VA Benefit site found HERE.

If you have questions, please contact Marina McKenna at mmckenna@voyageracademy.net.

Thanks,

Gwen Johnson
