Since its inception 39 years ago, the school’s annual Auction continues to be a significant source of revenue as well as an entertaining evening for the ever-increasing number of attendees. The net proceeds raised at the Auction are used for general operating expenses.
The Auction is run entirely by parent, faculty, staff, and student volunteers with administrative guidance from the Advancement Office. Items for bid are donated by businesses, parents, students, alumni, alumni parents, and faculty, and bids range from $5 to $5,000 and more. The big dollar items are often creative dinners and/or trips, and are bid on jointly by three, four, or even five couples.
This year’s auction is chaired by Sandy Buchanan (1st, 4th and 7th grade parent) and Sandee Chand (4th and 6th grade parent) with the theme of “Hometown Journeys.”
Thank you for supporting Auction 2017 – Hometown Journeys. The Railroad Museum was an impressive and spacious venue. The museum crew moved two of the trains out of the Round House to make room for our event, which included 28 dinner tables, the auctioneer’s stage, silent auction tables, the wine pull, hometown baskets, wish list and fixed price tables, photo booth, and a trio of musicians. The auction was a major success thanks to our generous bidders and donors and our dedicated volunteers.
What’s an auction without something to buy? We are busy soliciting and collecting wonderful items for your bidding pleasure.
Do you have a favorite restaurant or wine? Donate a gift certificate and a bottle or two. Do you have season tickets to the Kings, Republic, Giants, theater, concert, etc. and can’t possibly attend every game or performance? Donate a pair of tickets. How about a week or weekend at your mountain or beach house or a certificate to a bed & breakfast in the wine country?
