Adam Graves (re: Regan targets foes on way out): I loath responding to this apparent sour-grape attack but, I should enlighten the public on this drivel before someone actually buys into it. I am not speaking for the School or the Magnet Committee here but personally…The auction this year brought in a total of $95,455.97. The total spent for marketing the event was $5,666.95 not the lessor amount Brent said. So, roughly around 6% of the gross sales of the event went to market the event. This is well under the typical % of gross sales allocated for marketing a niche-target event. Every marketing item has an estimate submitted and purchased order created after it is decided on and approved by the auction/magnet funds committee. My time as Chair and the hours and hours of time spent strategizing, planning, meeting, organizing, procuring, etc. is all donated as a volunteer. More here.
