WHO: All SFA families welcome and encouraged to attend! Parents only event.

WHAT: A New York, New York themed, fun-filled evening of fellowship and the opportunity to bid on fantastic silent and live auction items! To include dinner, dueling pianos and other entertainment you won't want to miss!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? The auction is not a formal event. It is casual, but as we know everyone's interpretation of casual is different. Whatever you might wear on a dinner date with your spouse will be perfect!

WHAT'S FOR DINNER? View the menu here! Please note that there is a vegetarian option. If you would like a vegetarian meal, please click here to email Joanna Lowe by Saturday, January 25th.

WHERE: The SFA school halls and gym will transform into a night in the city! You can enter the building through either the north or south main school doors. NOT the Kids Care doors by the playground.

WHEN: Saturday, February 1st, 2020 at 5:30 PM.

Doors open at 5:30 with silent auction bidding and open bars. We will be seated for dinner at 6:30. Live portion of the auction is scheduled to end around 9:15. But that is when the dueling pianos will start taking requests to play your favorite songs (don't forget cash for tips that will ALL go back to the school!!). The music will end around 10:30.

WHY: The auction is our school's largest fundraiser! All money raised goes directly to our Home and School Association for curriculum enhancements, teacher support, class parties, hospitality, and other identified needs for growth of our school. Such as this year's Fund-A-Wish of a STEM Lab to help provide our students with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics tools to enhance learning, an lead to greater access to enrichment opportunities in the STEM field. 

AM I GOING TO BE PRESSURED TO BUY SOMETHING? NO! Just coming to the event helps financially. And more importantly, you will leave having had a fun night with dinner, live music and time with friends.  We do however want you to know that the price range of items is wide with many affordable items.

MORE QUESTIONS? We are here to help! Please email Auction Chair Brianna Umthun with any additional questions.
