This is our largest fundraiser each year, we are on our 22nd annual auction this year, and it is a huge help in keeping your children’s education at the highest of standards! The funds we raise through our auction help us preserve our exceptional education experience while maintaining an affordable tuition for all our families. Come prepared to eat, drink, socialize and bid! While bidding is appreciated it is not required and we encourage all our families to join us and enjoy the special night.
Date and Location
Mark your calendars, the date is set! This years auction will be held on April 21st, 2024 at the Tompkins Center at Grosse Pointe Park’s Windmill Pointe Park. Check back for further details as we get closer to this years date!
Who Can Attend?
We encourage all families to attend and bring guests! Extended family and friends are all welcome, but this is an adults only night. This night is a celebration of great friendship, good food, stellar finds, and tons of fun!
The auction committee has an acquisitions team which is responsible for contacting local businesses in hopes of securing donations. We are very fortunate to live in a community where so many individuals are willing to donate their time, money, goods, and services. Although our auction committee is committed and fabulous, the success of our auction depends on all of our families. Each and every preschool family contributes by donating, sponsoring, or soliciting at least one item or package worth a minimum value of $25.
If you have something you would like to donate or would like an invitation to attend please contact us!
At 7:00 pm you can preview and bid on the many items in the silent auction. Promptly at 8:30 pm the silent auction closes so be sure to keep tabs on any bids you’ve made! Bids go up in increments of $5. There are many great bargains to be had! There are sports, theater, and museum tickets, salon and spa services, children’s items, restaurant certificates, and so much more. There is truly something for everyone!
Around 9:00 pm our fabulous and entertaining auctioneer will begin the live auction. This fast-paced portion of the evening is so much fun! The live auction is filled with many tempting items such as event tickets, lawn care packages, jewelry, children’s birthday party packages, your child’s amazing class art projects, and again, so much more.
