Light the Way for South – Online Auction Starts Today!

Dear Newton Parents/Guardians,

In light of the recent NPS guidance regarding large public gatherings, we have had to cancel the March 28th Night Under the Stars Gala & Auction that was intended to raise funds for our Help Light the Way campaign to purchase and install permanent lights on our sports complex.

The Light the Way Auction will now be online starting today Friday, March 13, at 12:00pm till Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 11:59pm.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 by April 1 for our Light the Way Fundraiser   toward our goal of $400,000.  Merchant and community donations have provided us to offer over 60 items for our auction. Please click below to register online and start bidding today: 

We are also planning a large community celebration that will take place once the lights have been installed on the sports complex. More information will be sent out once a date has been finalized.

Many thanks for your continued support of the Help Light The Way fundraising campaign!  People who have already purchased Gala tickets to the event may either receive a full refund for the ticket price or convert ticket purchases into a donation towards the Help Light The Way fundraising campaign. Please contact Bella or Penelope.

Please reach out directly to Bella Gelman ( and Penelope Nam-Stephen ( if you have specific questions.

Stay safe and healthy….and Bid for the Lights! GO SOUTH, GO LIONS!
