2022 Auction Letter from the Imlers


From the desks of Earl & Jeanie Imler


Dear Friends and Family at Christ Lincoln, 


We are honored to be hosting the 2022 Christ Lincoln Schools Dinner & Auction. Please join us for The Derby to ensure Christ Schools continues to hit the trifecta of, “Win, Place, and Show!” The festivities include a delicious dinner, a Dessert Dash, picture opportunities in the “Winner’s Circle” and silent and live auctions.


The high quality of education and academics provided by our dedicated and spiritually inspired faculty and staff has instilled our grandson Avery Johnson with core values of Christ’s everyday presence in his life since he was a baby in the “Bunny Room” to graduating from Christ Schools this last May. He is now a 6th grader at Lincoln Lutheran.


The goal of this 20th annual event is to raise much-needed support for Christ Lincoln Schools Elementary, Child Care, Preschool & Summer Programs. There are several things you can do to help us reach our goal. 


First, we ask that you PRAY. Pray for the organizers and that donations will be received, and that we will be blessed with great generosity from all our friends!


Secondly, PLAN. Please mark Friday, November 11 on your calendar/phone (or both) and plan to attend our Derby Night at the Scottish Rite Ballroom in downtown Lincoln (the same venue as last year). Doors open at 5:30 pm, and dinner will begin at 7 pm.  


And finally, DONATE.  We ask that you consider donating to the auction.  Check out a list of ideas here.  If you do not have access to these items, please consider making a monetary contribution to be used to purchase auction items. Your donations will be acknowledged the evening of our event and are 100% tax deductible. When you donate, please use this donation form and bring it with your item to the church or school office by Thursday, October 28. (Donations will continue to be accepted after this date, but may be saved for a future event). 


Invitations will be mailed in the coming weeks! If you don’t receive one, you are still invited and you can pick one up at the school offices during the week or the church welcome desks on Sundays.  Individual tickets will go on sale Saturday, October 1 online anytime at or in the Sumner School Office during the week. Individual tickets and tickets for tables of ten are available. Click HERE to sponsor a table. You won’t want to miss this event! Space is limited, so please, please purchase your tickets and reserve your tables SOON! 


Christ Lincoln Schools continues to bless our church, community, and many children’s lives through God’s goodness and grace. So don your fancy hats and Derby finery and thank you for your support of Christ Schools - see you at THE DERBY! 


Earl & Jeanie
