Every year, the silent and live auctions raise vital money for our school. Together we raised $20,000 last year thanks to everyone's generous donations and bidding! Can you, your business or employer (maybe even your family, friends or clients) help by donating an item or voucher that we can auction? Artworks, flights, travel vouchers, show/sports tickets, coaching sessions, signed memorabilia, a service, experience, a boat/sailing trip or a stay in a bach are always popular and all donations are gratefully received. We are happy to follow up with any contacts that you pass on to us. In return, we promise to give their company good press!
