What is the BEcommunity Auction?

The BEcommunity Auction is East Ridge Elementary PTA’s main (and extremely fun!) fundraiser. Thanks to the generosity of our school families and community members, last year we raised enough to provide social-emotional learning books not only for our school but a sister school in the district. We were able to sponsor numerous programs and activities that promote academic enrichment, cultural awareness, community service, etc.  Funds raised also allow us to continue equipping our school with emergency preparedness supplies.  This community event brings our school together to ensure that our kids receive the best possible enrichment opportunities at East Ridge.


We are a Bear Creek family. How will the BEcommunity Auction work this year?

We want to have one last party all together to celebrate the community we’ve built over the past four years.  EVERYONE from the Bear Creek Elementary community is welcome at the BEcommunity Auction and we hope you will join us.  We are excited for the majority of Bear Creek general education families to join us at school next year, why wait to join in the fun?!  Because students at Bear Creek are going in several different directions next year, logistics prove it highly difficult to distribute funds to multiple locations and therefore all proceeds raised will benefit East Ridge Elementary’s PTA.


I can’t attend the auction but want to participate. Will there be online bidding?

YES!  Online bidding is easy and free from the comfort of your own couch. More details to come…
