Welcome to Sip Slide & Click 2020!
Our annual fundraiser for the teachers and staff at Bergman Academy.
Wow. What a challenging time for our nation and the world. It's times like these in history where it's most important to be a part of a community. There is such comfort in being around people that you share life experiences with. This is so true right here at Bergman Academy. Our community has stayed strong and continues to stay strong throughout this challenge.
The glue that holds this community together are our teachers and staff. They were asked to do a lot this past school year and they responded. With force. Thank you to all of our teachers and staff for your amazing work.
With the challenges that we hold this coming school year the decision has been made to not hold an in-person Sip & Slide event in August. However, the online auction will go on as planned!!
For those who may not be aware, Sip & Slide started in 2013 as a back to school social gathering. Two separate Bergman families would host the event on the same evening. The party would start at one house and SLIDE to the next. Hence the name Sip & Slide. The idea to add an auction took shape as the event grew. The combination of connecting socially with our Bergman community while also raising funds for our teachers and staff became the foundation of Sip & Slide.
That foundation continues today! Sip & Slide has become the cornerstone of the social event offerings at Bergman. The event is an amazing way to visit with returning families, meet new ones, enjoy some adult time, while also providing a fun and interactive way to contribute to our teachers and staff.
We look forward to continuing this Sip & Slide tradition in its classic form next year. BUT this year we'll have to settle for shouting hellos from our cars, friendly honks, and spirited waves. Although we won't be able to socially gather this year, we can gather online and participate in this great event. Grab a glass of your favorite beverage and join us for a live Zoom on Friday, Aug 28th from 7-8pm. Let's connect again as we start on this new school year.
Our hope is that everyone really shows our teachers and staff how appreciative we are of each and every one of them. They went above and beyond by quickly transitioning our learning environment and providing the quality education that Bergman is known for. We can show them our appreciation in a lot of ways, but one big way is to participate in the Sip & Slide online auction.
Remember, proceeds from Sip Slide & Click go directly to our teachers and staff!
There are lots of great auction items this year. And don't worry, if you are outbid, or perhaps don't find anything that suits your fancy, you can always make a cash donation. It's all for a great cause!
