**  There will also be many positions that will need to be filled for the night of by non-attending volunteers - either Cougar Ridge parents who do not plan on going to the Auction or outside volunteers (alumni or parents from other schools). 
 
The goal is to have all parents attending the Auction able to enjoy the Auction. Most of the work in the above positions should happen prior to the Auction and non-attending volunteers will carry out the tasks the night of the Auction. We ask for volunteers from other elementary schools in the area, school alumni and non-attending parents to help ensure that everyone who is attending the Auction is able to participate in the festivities.
