Annual Auction

Annual auction

Thank you for another great auction!

This year’s Renew Auction was a success in so many ways; it was our first year offsite and what a night we had.

The McGavick Center is an exceptional venue and was a perfect place to hold our first offsite event, the staff was wonderful to work with, and the room had a sophisticated, “night out on the town” atmosphere.

The sophisticated atmosphere was underscored by the musical stylings of the Paul Sawtelle Jazz Combo; they were a big hit! You can be assured that we will be enjoying their music at future events.

Most important to a successful auction is to secure a talented and seasoned auctioneer. In this we had the best in the business. Larry Snyder has a heart for our organization, in the past he was instrumental in making our virtual auctions successful, and he did no less for our first offsite endeavor. We are blessed to have him working so hard for us.

Some highlights:

  • Tom Omli’s popular pickles brought in $100 for 2 quart jars, roughly $10 per pickle!  Thank you Mr. Omli your pickles were a hit.
  • Chambers Bay Foursome with lunch netted $900. Thank you Chambers Bay Golf.
  • Everyone waited in anticipation for Mr. Richey’s BBQ to come up.  The bidding was furious and the winner paid $650.
  • The three-hour cruise on the Seaquel was a hit and the winning bid was $1,100! Thank you to the Kelpman’s for this generous donation.
  • Jim and Marlyn Jensen donated their Palm Desert Stay again, and it was a big hit and the bidding was intense!  The winning bidder will be enjoying wonderful vacation thanks to the Jensen’s generous donation.
  • $48,000 was the total raised. Thank you to everyone who participated!

The evening was enhanced with beautiful, passed appetizers and a mouth-watering buffet dinner, along with the beautiful table settings, and centerpieces. To keep the atmosphere fun and exciting we had spirited dash for the desserts which were spectacular to say the least.

It was a memorable evening and a successful first offsite auction, as always it is those who participated that made it so. Thanks to all who attended, volunteered, and helped to make our first offsite auction a success! See you next year …

2021 Diamond Jubilee Virtual Auction

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Diamond Jubilee online auction. We raised more than $60,000 this year, which will help offset costs to keep our tuition affordable and to be able to provide the best materials for our students.

Our Fund-A-Need program was a big success and supports many projects around the school, including purchasing science tables and scales, P.E. equipment, a weight bench set and so much more.
