How can I help?
There are so many opportunities! Join one of the auction committees. Donate an auction package for the silent or live auction. Do you own or know someone who owns a business? Become a sponsor, advertiser, or donor. Follow and share the Auction on social media. Contact us by email or phone or by stopping by the Auction office to learn more.
What can I expect at the auction?
The auction features Silent and Live auctions, raffles, a strolling dinner, and cocktails. The night is a great time to socialize with others from Star and our community; as well as pick up some great items!
I don’t want to bid in Live. Will there be anything for me to bid on?
Of course! There truly is something for everyone ranging from $20 up to several thousand dollars. There will be a huge variety of items such as; sporting tickets, items for your home and patio, restaurant certificates, toys, boutique items and spa services, and the highly coveted, Teacher donations and Classroom Art projects! There are also some fantastic raffle prizes and games of chance to try your luck!
How are the funds raised used?
The proceeds from the auction are used firstly to fill the gap between the price of tuition and the cost of educating each child. Funds raised above these budgetary needs, are used to fund educational programs to enhance the curriculum; classroom manipulatives, building improvements, and to keep our students equipped with the latest technology and educational tools. Bottom line is that all funds are used to benefit each of the Star students!
Do children attend?
As much as we love our Stars, this is an adult evening, so reserve your sitters now for the main event. However, the students won’t be left out! They will be able to participate in some pre-event activities at school.
Can I bring friends that do not have students at Star?
Absolutely, all are welcome!
What should I wear?
Cocktail attire is the dress for the evening. Men mostly wear suits or jacket and tie and women; cocktail dresses. However, in the spirit of this year's theme, Derby attire is encouraged!
