We have 24 dessert sign-ups so far, but we need at least 30. Please consider donating your favorite treat! In past auctions, Dessert Dash has raised over $10,000 for the school! All desserts will be on display when guests arrive and each table will have the opportunity to place a group dessert bid. Thank you to all who have already signed up! Sign up here to purchase one or more desserts for this popular auction item!

Auction Night Volunteers

For such a large event, we need many volunteers on April 8 to make this a success. We are especially in need of food servers and volunteer bid spotters! If you would like to volunteer on April 8, please check out the Sign Up Genius

Thank you to Kristen Capka, who has graciously agreed to lead the volunteers. We would like all volunteer positions filled, but these ones are of particular importance: 

  • Food & Wine Servers (8 openings – each volunteer server saves the school $150)
  • Volunteer Bid Spotters (2 openings – help our two pro spotters identify auction bidders in the crowd)
  • Live Auction Recorder (1 more needed)

Class Art Projects will be displayed at the Greenwood Library from March 25-April 7. They will be included in our “Hill Valley’ Spotlight Section on April 8. Thank you to the students and parent volunteer leads for their hard work in creating these amazing works of art!

Live Auction items will be available for bidding at the LIVE auction only! Here’s a sneak peek at two awesome items:
