Auction Tickets

It’s Showtime, Folks!!!!

 Well, not quite…but boy is it getting close! Here are all the auction notes you need to know before you head out for break.

Headlining this Week: Procurement

Thank you to all who have already donated. For those who haven’t, it’s not too late!! We will accept auction donations through mid-March.  Items submitted after this Friday, February 14, will likely not be in the printed catalog, but don’t let that stop you – submit your items today! We still need buy-in parties (plan one with friends!) and electronics in particular.

Have a donation? Click here to complete the online donation form, or submit your paper form at the auction table in the school’s front hall. Please also submit any tangible items and gift cards in the bin under the auction table by Friday, February 28.

The Box Office is Open:  Auction Tickets Now On Sale!!

You’ll receive auction invitations via email this week. Invite family and friends to join – all are welcome! Tickets can be purchased here, and are available at a special Early Bird price through February 26. Tables seat 10; please include the names of friends or family you’d like to sit with when you purchase tickets. The auction committee will do its best to accommodate your requests.

At The Big Event

You’ll want to be there when the doors open at 5:00 p.m. auction night! The festivities start immediately with the silent auction, and complimentary, tray-passed drinks from 5:00 to 5:30 p.m. Dinner seating is at 6:30 p.m., followed by the always-exciting and entertaining live auction.

The evening culminates with a DJ and dancing– always a crowd favorite – at 10:00 p.m.  Stick around for the fun, and thank you Westside School parent, Peter Hilgendorf!

The Dessert Dash!!!

Another auction highlight is when the tables bid for a “run” at the desserts.  If you’re new to this, it’s simple: everyone at the table has the option to contribute to a dessert bid; the table with the highest cumulative bid gets first dibs at choosing a dessert.  (And if you’ve seen the amazing desserts donated in past years, you know what a prize this is!)

Interested in donating a dessert? Please sign up here.  Desserts should serve 10 to 12, and need to be dropped off at Seattle Design Center the morning of Saturday, March 22.

There are still volunteer opportunities available to those both those attending or not attending the auction. Interested? Click here to volunteer, and thank you!
