Dear Members of the FASNY Community,

I am overjoyed to share with you that we had a very successful virtual gala on Saturday. The outpouring of support shown by the community was just magnificent, and the results far exceeded our expectations. We have raised over $720,000 for our amazing school! 

You all came together-our faculty, students, parents, and alumni-to show that, no matter where we are, we are all united for the betterment of FASNY. Our school is great because of YOU, and I'm deeply grateful to the members of the FASNY Gala committee for all of their hard work in pivoting to this new, virtual format under the amazing leadership of our co-chairs, Marina Fadel and Ghita Nekmouche. 

I thank all of you-our sponsors, donors, ticket holders, raffle participants, volunteers, and bidders who kept the bids going all of last week, and even made additional donations in support on the night of the event! Your engagement will make a real difference in the lives of our students. I ask each of you to please take a moment to review our list of sponsors, whose steadfast support will allow us to continue to improve our students' educational experience. In addition, please view our virtual journal advertisers, as many of them are local businesses that will continue to need our support in these difficult times.

This year's gala will never be forgotten as it was historical in so many ways-our first virtual gala with the most creativity, our largest attended event with over 1,000 viewers, our least costly gala to date, and the first gala attended by students. This certainly was a memorable experience for the entire community. 

Finally, I'd like to once again recognize our "Sparking Creativity" Gala honorees-Janine and Tom Hill-for their unwavering support to FASNY. 

Thank you, all, and please stay safe and healthy!

Francis Gianni

Head of School

How does the silent auction work?

We will be using mobile bidding the night of the virtual event for our auction. You will be able to use your smartphone/tablet to keep up with the status of your bids and continue bidding until the auction closes. You can be the winning bidder wherever you are in the world!

How do I participate in the online bidding auction?

Get started online through this auction page. To expedite your registration, please register with the auction site prior to the online bidding time.

Start Bidding

Browse the Silent Auction and start bidding on your favorite items! Place your bid on selected items, and set a maximum bid if desired, and Givesmart will continue to keep you in the running until you reach your maximum.

Keep Active

You will be notified via text if you have been outbid. Keep an eye on your favorite items! If you are NOT receiving the text messages make sure you have the correct mobile number under your profile. The texts will continue to notify you when you have been outbid or reached your maximum bid. When the silent auction closes, you will also receive a text message if you won any items!

For easier bidding you can also do the following:

Set a maximum bid. The auction software will automatically raise your bid by a predetermined increment until your maximum bid has been met or the silent auction ends.

Collect Your Winnings

Auction winners are required to make payment the night of the event. Please note that you will have the choice to either pay credit card fees yourself or we will run all remaining balances on all cards on file at midnight. All auction items are currently being stored in the office. We will announce a pick up time for when you can retrieve your items in the coming weeks.

*All bids are final and binding. There will be no exchanges, alterations or refunds on items. Gift certificates cannot be exchanged for cash. All items are "as is". Please note any restrictions stipulated by the prize donor. We are not responsible or liable for any discrepancies. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of values for tax purposes.
