Auction

We have been carefully tracking the latest developments around COVID-19 in the local area and nationwide.  The health and wellbeing of our Cherry Crest community will always be our top priority, and we’ve made the decision to hold our auction online rather than in-person. Read on for details!

WHAT

The Auction is one of just three major annual events put on by your Cherry Crest PTSA to raise much-needed funds for enhancing the educational experience of each and every child at our school (see here for more). Join friends, family, parents, teachers, and staff as we celebrate this amazing community with our first-ever online auction!  Curious about exactly what to expect?  See our FAQ section below for more!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DOES THE ONLINE AUCTION WORK?

Once you register on the auction website, you will have access to dozens of web pages, each one describing an item or experience that has been donated to auction. At any moment, there is a price associated with each item – if you want the item, you click the “bid” button corresponding to the price you’re willing to pay, and your choice is recorded and shown on the page. Each item also has a “closing time” associated with it, after which no more bids are accepted. Over time, the price to win an item can rise as people compete to submit higher bid prices, right up until the closing time – for each item on the website, if your bid price is the highest at the closing time, you win it!

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

All friends of Cherry Crest are welcome!  Feel free to invite spouses, grandparents, friends, or neighbors – anyone who wants to support our school and have the chance to bid on amazing items and experiences – remember, registration is free!

DO I HAVE TO BUY SOMETHING?

Absolutely not!  You are under no obligation to bid on or buy anything during the auction, and there is no cost to register. If you do plan on bidding, keep in mind there is something for every budget – starting as low as $10! Be sure to check out the catalog (which will become available closer to the event date) for items you won’t want to miss!
