Laurelhurst Elementary's annual on-line auction has opened for bidding and is live for a week ending on Friday, March 14 at 10pm.
It is open to all friends, neighbors and family. One-hundred percent of auction proceeds are reinvested back into the school to support programs including music, art, technology, tutors and more.
