Spring Silent Auction

We are like totally having an 80s party so be there or be square!

  • What is it? An adult-only event that raises funds for Grout Elementary community and supporters.
  • Where does the money go? The auction currently funds in part or whole: allowances for classrooms, art, drama, K-1 Artist in residence, library, PE, SUN School, community building events, curriculum, garden program, welcome T-shirt’s for new students.  Past auction funds gave us the new playground that was installed Summer 2018.  We have to have this fundraiser to keep our programs that don’t get funded going.
  • Is it fun? Yes! This event has been growing and it has given parents a chance to let loose, share laughs, grow friendships and illustrate the best parts of our community.
  • Why should I go? See above.
  • Will you feed me? Yes! A drink ticket also comes with the ticket price and we will have a bar with beer & wine for purchase.
  • What should I expect this year? Over 100+ silent auction items, games, classroom art, and maybe a 80s dance party throughout the night.
  • What do I wear? Themed outfits are strongly encouraged. This year’s theme is “Totally 80s” – open to your interpretation
  • Where do I buy tickets? Tickets will go on sale March 18th here: https://www.auctria.com/auction/grout
