The Stevens' Private Residence in Lake Creek
Join us for an evening under the stars! Community School's Annual Auction is the school's primary fundraising event, one that is not to be missed. The event will include a Live Auction, Paddle-Up, Party Sign-Ups, and Raffle.
This year, we will welcome approximately 200 parents, faculty, alumni, and friends of the school.
As with most independent schools, tuition and fees do not cover Community School's operating costs. The school relies on donations to the Annual Fund and proceeds from fundraising events like the Annual Auction. We hope to raise $200,000 to support school programs.
This annual party is one of Community School's most important fundraisers and benefits those who matter most — our students. The auction helps sustain everything that makes Community School an exceptional and unique learning environment, including academics, the arts, athletics, the Outdoor Program, faculty development, and financial aid.
By April 8: $175 per person | $1,400 per table of eight
After April 8: $200 per person | $1,600 per table of eight
Luxury Lodge: $10,000
Rustic Cabin: $5,000
Canvas Tent: $2,500
