Annual Auction

Overview

Auction

Country Day's Annual Gala and Auction is a significant source of revenue as well as an entertaining evening for the ever-increasing number of attendees. The net proceeds raised at the event 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.
