A not-to-be-missed community event or buy-it-now item awaits you! There is no bidding on the “buy-it-now” and “community events” wall items. Simply sign-up wherever there is an open slot. For a fixed price, the experience or item is yours. (But don't dilly-dally ... spots fill up fast!)
Golden Ticket Raffle
100 Golden raffle tickets will be available on the night of the auction for $50 per ticket. Our auctioneer will draw the winning ticket right before the Live Auction section of the evening begins. The ticket holder, who must be present to win, may select a prize from the live auction. (Please be advised that a few packages and items may be excluded from the golden raffle, as will be noted in the auction catalog.)
Heads or Tails
For $25 per participant, you can play Heads or Tails for a chance to win one of our highly valued auction items (to be announced). Our auctioneer will ask all Heads and Tails participants to stand up and put their hands on their heads … or their tails. The auctioneer will then flip a coin to determine the winners: heads or tails. Those with their hands on the “winning end” stay standing—the others sit down. This game continues until the number of players whittles down to a handful. The last player standing who’s selected the right “end” for the coin toss wins.
Again this year, we will have two silent auctions. While mingling with others from the community, you will be able to peruse the silent auction tables and place your bids on the accompanying bid sheets. Watch your bids throughout the evening and raise them as desired until the silent auction closes. You can also guarantee that you’ll win a particular item by writing your bid number next to the “Guaranteed Bid” price (generally 150 percent of the value reported by donor). When a silent auction section closes, a member of the auction committee or a trained volunteer will circle the winning bid number on each bid sheet in that section.
Shortly after dinner has been served, the live auction with 20-25 highly valued items and packages will begin. Our auctioneer will describe each item available. To bid, simply raise your bid card toward the auctioneer, who will acknowledge and announce the highest bidder.
Combine bids with the others at your table to claim one of the delicious desserts available at the auction. The table with the highest bid gets first chance at dashing to dessert of its choice! You’ll need to be fast, though, to get your favorite dessert ... because the next winning table number will be called quickly. (It's called a DASH for a reason!)
Our goal is to have everyone 100% participation in this event. Our auction supports our entire school community -- from providing music and art education, tutors and counseling, and technology and playground equipment. We all benefit!
Whether you volunteer on a committee, donate an item, or attend the auction, every bit helps us get closer to our ultimate goal: supporting our amazing North Beach teachers and staff as they give our children a most awesome educational experience. Thank you!
