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 2017, we raised over $70,000 for the school! This year, our goal is to raise $10,000 more than last year. If everyone who attended the auction donated $40-$50 more dollars, we could reach this goal! Bid often, bid high. Together, we can make a great impact.
Do I need to dress up?
There is no dress code but dressing up in general 50's attire or your favorite character from Grease is highly encouraged. Think poodles skirts, jeans with a rolled cuff and white T-shirt, cat eye glasses, and ANY character from Grease!
