Can't attend but still want to make a difference?

Join us by making a monetary donation! Last year, the Auction raised over $252,000 to support excellence in education at Sewickley Academy. Your gift to the Auction helps to bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the actual cost of immediate needs and essential programs while supporting the overall operating budget. No act of generosity is too small to make a difference!

We welcome item donations!
