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. The big dollar items are often creative dinners and/or trips, and are bid on jointly by three, four, or even five couples.

Gala 2020 - We Are Country Day 

We are pleased to announce we will host a special community celebration via webinar on May 16, in conjunction with our online auction. This event will feature recorded videos and live interactions to showcase our community members, celebrate our students’ talent and creativity, and offer an opportunity to simply have fun and support each other. Proceeds raised from our online auction will go toward supporting our students, faculty and staff, and helping to defray unanticipated expenses incurred by the pandemic. Specifically, our Fund-a-Need paddle raise will be used to build a temporary Country Day Community Fund to bolster tuition assistance for families significantly impacted by COVID-19. The online auction opens May 10 and can be accessed here.

We know that the connections in our community run deeper than any required social distancing. Let’s build a stronger community together!
