Sand Point Elementary School Auction Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Auction?

The Sand Point Elementary (SPE) auction is an event put on by the Sand Point PTA. It is an adult-only evening of fun, dinner, a raffle, a dessert dash, bidding on great silent and live auction items, and raising the paddle, all to raise funds for the students of SPE.

How does the PTA use the auction proceeds?

The dollars raised from the auction will enable the PTA to support enrichment programs not funded or only partially funded by the Seattle School District such as art and science enrichment programs, the organic school garden, playground expansion, field trips, library acquisitions, classroom grants, capital improvements, and other educational support as needed throughout the school year.  Your purchase of any of the items up for auction—from gift certificates at local restaurants and stores, to great wine,  to class projects, to experiences such as tickets to sporting events or a weekend getaway—makes for a fun evening and benefits the students of Sand Point Elementary.

Who Can Attend Auction Night?

Parents, grandparents, teachers, staff, supporters and friends (21 and over) of Sand Point Elementary are welcome to attend the auction.  We encourage current and incoming SPE families to invite friends, grandparents, and neighbors for a fun night out.

Where is Auction Night held?

The auction is being held at the University of Washington Husky Union Building (HUB) North Ballroom (4001 West Stevens Way NE, Seattle, WA 98195).

How much are tickets? What is included in the ticket price?

Tickets are $60 each or $480 for a table of 8. Tickets include appetizers, dinner, drinks, and a great evening. Please consider hosting your child’s teacher or other SPE staff member by sponsoring their seat. Our goal is to have all 30 SPE staff members’ tickets sponsored.

Why should I attend the auction?

What we learned from our first auction in 2013 and from our (non-auction) March Madness fundraiser in 2014 is that these events are a lot of fun. It’s the one night each year when our school community gets together—without kids—for a memorable evening of dinner, drinks, and fun, all while supporting Sand Point Elementary! It’s a win-win for everyone. Please join us for another great event!
