What type of items are accepted?
Almost anything! We do however ask that items be new, unopened and of store-like quality.
What is the silent vs verbal auction?
The silent auction allows people to walk around and write their bids on a piece of paper. These items are typically gift certificates for stores/services, small merchandise, class baskets and are low to moderately priced things. The verbal auction is hosted by a professional auctioneer on an item-by-item basis. These items typically include artwork handmade by our students/classes, unique experiences (i.e. headmaster for the day), vacation packages and are priceless. We accept donations for both categories.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes! Your item donation form lists our school Tax ID number for your accounting records.
Can I donate an item or make a sponsorship contribution in honor of someone?
Absolutely! Recognize students, remember family members or simply make your own donation. We will list this in our auction catalog so please be sure to note your "in honor of" on your donation form.
I can't make it to the auction and am unable t donate/sponsor at this time, but would like to help by making a small monetary donation. Am I able to do so?
Every penny counts! Please feel free to make a check payable to "CCS PTO" or select the cash donation option at checkout.
The annual auction is CCS PTO's largest fundraiser. Each year, parents, grandparents, teachers, staff, families and friends of our school come together for an evening of great food and fun fellowship in order to raise funds that support our Coventry Kids. The evening features a silent auction, verbal auction, hand-made artwork from our students, professional photographs and raffle prizes. In fact, within the past 10 years alone, it has raised over $232,000! There is truly something for everyone and every budget - from gift certificates for everyday stores/services to jewelry, unique experiences and more.
This year, our theme of "Family Vacation" will bring an exciting and engaging component to the event. Pictures of your favorite CCS staff members when they were younger will be featured in trivia-styled centerpieces and tables will be destination themed! Professional Jen Lebo Photography portraits will be available and you'll even be able to book your family's next stay-cation or vacation, all while benefiting the school and enjoying a wonderful evening.
Come to the PTO's 21st annual auction. Invite members of your church, family, co-workers, neighbors and friends ~ bring a friend (or two, or three!) and we'll see you there!
