Parent Donation Spotlight - A Vacation in Mexico

Casie and Craig Budolfson have graciously donated a 5 night vacation in Sayulita, Mexico!  Up for bid is their beautiful condo, located just 30 miles from Puerto Vallarta. Would you like to get away to this tranquil, peaceful, surfing village? Their gated condo community is a 3 minute golf car ride to the surfing waves, numerous shops, and restaurants of Sayulita!  Their condo sleeps 6 (2 queens, 1 king), features an infinity pool, and has a large deck from which to enjoy ocean views, morning coffee, and nightcaps!  Thank you for your generosity Budolfson family!  Go to to see more pics and get details.  This item will be up for bid at the Fiesta only!  See you there!

The money raised pays for the LAs who staff your children’s classrooms.  The very reason we have the Fiesta directly translates to your child’s education – a worthy cause! To donate, click here:

Stock the Cellar & Stock the Bar

Stock the Cellar (formerly the Wall of Wine) is an auction item which is only up for live bid at the Fiesta, so send in your RSVP and get your babysitter!  Stock the Cellar is a Fiesta favorite and it is your chance to win dozens of bottles of wine!  This year, we are adding a similar item called “Stock the Bar” which will include high quality spirits, liquors, and barware.

We can’t stock the cellar or bar without your help and Minnetonka Lake Wine & Spirits has agreed to sponsor us with a challenge!  

They have agreed to donate 2 cases of wine if ISLA families reach a donation total of $250 (minimum).  The challenge is on!  Drop off your checks made out to ISLA PTO (with “wine” in the memo).  Place the money in an envelope and give it to Emily Smith in ISLA’s front office.

If you wish to directly purchase and donate a favorite bottle of wine or spirits, please drop off the bottle(s) at ISLA, directly to Emily Smith in the front office, or contact Casie Budolfson, at Add the tag below, if you wish, for a more personalized touch.

Ace Spirits, 4 Shady Oak Rd, Hopkins is offering a 10% discount on any bottle of liquor, if you mention ISLA Fiesta.
