Auction

 SAVE THE DATE!!

The I Heart Park Hill Auction will be held on Feb. 24, 2018 at Park Hill Golf Club!

Please join us for a super fun evening and our most important fundraiser of the year!  This FREE event is welcome to everyone in our community, so please invite your neighbors and friends!  Proceeds from our auction directly support our classroom paraprofessionals (reducing our student:teacher ratio), math and reading interventionists, additional resources for our computer lab, art, music, and library, as well as funding for our school nurse and crossing guards!  Every cent matters and we need YOU to help us “Bridge The Gap” from what we receive from DPS and what our needs require.  We need to raise $150/student to “Bridge The Gap”, so your support is greatly appreciated!

Enjoy dinner on the town and then head to the golf club where the good times will continue!  Bid, bid, bid!!  We expect to have over 400 fantastic items in our silent auction, ranging from experiences to great getaways to class baskets, camps for kids, our extremely popular Buy A Share parties, restaurant gift cards, sports and entertainment, and local art.  Get ready to hoot and holler during our spirited live auction, where you have the opportunity to win cool raffle items and outbid your fellow parents!  Bring it on!!  

We are thrilled to announce that following our live auction, the incredible 80’s cover band, The Goonies, will be performing live!!!  So pull out your neon glasses and get ready to hit the dance floor!!  Online registration and select bidding opens early January 2018!!

How Important is This?

The Park Hill Elementary Operating Budget relies on the auction each year.

This year, our goal is to raise $100,000. The proceeds fund these essential services:

  • Paraprofessionals in the classroom
  • Literacy and math intervention/support
  • Health aide in the school office
  • Resources for the library, art and music rooms, and computer lab
  • Lunchroom supervision and crossing guards

Our school truly is an amazing place of great learning! We know that budgets are tight, so we ask that you prioritize your giving and put your child’s education at the top of your list. Every donation and volunteer hour will help to make our school the best it’s ever been!

I Want to Volunteer!

What Happens on Auction Night?

The evening begins at 7 pm with cocktails and silent auction bidding. When you arrive you’ll be assigned a bidder number if have not already registered ai iHeartParkHill.com. You will be charged only for items you win.

Bidding

Throughout the evening you can scope out your favorite items and write your name and bidder number on the bid sheet. You’ll find great items in all price ranges.

Winning and Taking it Home

Auction night you’ll be able to take your winnings home, and you can pick up certificates the week after the event (times and dates will be advertised at the Auction itself).

Some Tips

You’ll want to get to the very popular Buy-a-Share table early in the evening. These are great parties for adults and/or children of which you “buy a share” for you and your spouse or for your child. Some examples from previous years are: a Left-Right-Center dice party,  Crawfish Boil,  or a Booze Cruz.   Costs for these fun experiences vary by event, but all sell out quickly!

Live Auction

As the silent auction closes, the live auction portion of the evening begins. An Italian Feast for Ten, Condo in Frisco for Spring Break, or a week in Gandby Ranch; these are some of the big-ticket items of recent years.

Even if your family budget is tight, you can celebrate; come just to enjoy the excitement and/or give as little as $5 and know that you have been an important part of supporting our school.

Beyond the Auction

This is more than an auction; it’s also our community’s best party of the year! Here are some additional activities you can have fun with:

  • Great raffle prizes – Cruiser Bikes
  • Wine Wall –  A game os skill?

What Else Should I Know?

  • Each person gets a prepaid drink ticket, courtesy of the Park Hill PTSA.
  • Delicious food will be provided by Park Hill favorites Cake Crumbs and Oblio’s.
  • Most dress up a bit. Khaki pants and nice shirt for the men and nice pants/skirt/or simple dress for the ladies. But you can come as casual or as dressy as you like!!

Just enjoy the fun evening!
