5th Annual East Ridge PTA Community Auction

Presented by:

 

East Ridge Community PTA Auction

Our annual auction is the PTA’s primary fundraising event for the year.  After taking a pause we are excited to bring the in-person component of the auction back this year with our 5th annual community event.  The auction is a wonderful way to support our East Ridge community. 

This year’s funds will help support a variety of causes, including teacher enrichment, new picnic tables, and a covered area to cover the Friendship Garden. These spaces will allow students to have a sheltered area for quiet activities, such as reading and drawing during recess. It will also be accessible during school events and provide a covered outdoor area for art, music and other school activities.

Our hope is to get as many families involved in this year’s community event! Please see below for a variety of ways you can participate this year.

How can you help?

We have lots of great opportunities to help with this year’s community auction. Check out these areas below and let us know if you have any questions at becommunityauctioninfo@gmail.com.

Derby Desserts Wanted!!!

The Dessert Dash is a popular auction experience where attendee tables pool donations for the opportunity to select from a group of desserts with the highest bid getting first choice, second choice, and so forth.

We are partnering with local bakeries to provide in-kind donations and we are looking for members of the school community to contribute a dessert that feeds up to 8 people.  School community donations were our primary, and favorite, source of desserts previous years.  Anything from grandma's secret recipe to a custom themed cookie, we will happily take store bought too.
