About the Auction
What is the Auction?
The John Rogers PTA invites staff, families and friends to a fun night out to support our school. The auction is an adult-only event and our school’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Tickets for the auction are purchased in advance and include dinner and open bar. The event is a great opportunity for you to socialize with other parents and staff while also helping raise money to benefit our students’ education.
How does the Auction work?
The night will consist of both a silent auction (items to bid on include everything from gift certificates to restaurants, sporting event tickets, hand made items, unique experiences for children and fun outings for everyone) as well as a live auction (bid on larger items like vacation getaways, unique experiences, classroom projects and experiences with teachers and staff – and whether you participate in the Live bidding or not, it is highly entertaining to watch!).
What is our fundraising goal?
In 2015, we raised over $70,000 for the school! Those fundraising efforts helped us fund our school counselor, tutoring programs, art and science enrichment, library books, classroom supplies, community and family events and much more.
Do I need to dress up?
There is no dress code but dressing up in 80s theme is highly encouraged! Our auction is 80s themed this year so we are encouraging 80s themed outfits. View our 80s inspiration page for ideas!
