Stockbridge Area Educational Foundation FOT brings table decorating back in 2022

by Jennifer Hammerberg and Jill Ogden

The Stockbridge Area Educational Foundation is excited about this year’s Festival of Tables. With circumstances continuing to make it difficult to hold a traditional Festival of Tables, the foundation is bringing back the online auction and adding a table decorating contest to add some traditional flavor!

Borrowing a great idea from the PTO’s successful light pole decorating contest, participation in this contest will raise money for SAEF and other local charities at the same time. Individuals, families or organizations can register for a space at the Student Activity Center where they can create a table display and compete for first, second or third place.

Here’s how it works: You pick a local charity or scholarship fund to represent, pay $20 to participate, create a beautifully decorated table display and encourage all your friends to support your cause! The top three displays will receive a donation awarded using the money collected from all votes. Tables will be featured online and the public will have access to view the tables, as well as auction items, in person on the final day of the auction March 19, 2022. Votes can be made by anyone who wishes to vote (auction participation is NOT required) with as little as $1 that then becomes prize money! One dollar equals one vote. Votes can be cast in person at all school offices or can be cast electronically via PayPal (to

The auction and decorating contest will begin on March 12 and run for one week, ending on Saturday, March 19. If you would like to donate an item for the auction or need more information, please contact or SAEF President Jennifer Hammerberg at 517-206-4166.
