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 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.
