Bidding Starts Monday For Laurelhurst Elementary School Auction

Laurelhurst Elementary School's annual on-line auction, the largest fundraiser of the year put on by the PTA,  opens for bidding on Monday and is live until Friday, March 13 at 1am.  

The eBay style online auction s 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.

We'd love to invite your subscribers to check it out," Bev, one of the coordinators told us.

She added:

As a fellow subscriber, I think your audience will find the online auction of interest due to the large variety of items we'll have to bid on.  Furthermore, so many Laurelhurst residents have some relationship to the school - past or present - and I think the auction is a great way to support the kids, teachers and staff, while bidding on some exciting items.  
With your bid, not only do you have the chance of winning some great items, but you are also helping Laurelhurst Elementary School to continue to provide so many opportunities that make Laurelhurst so great. 
The money earned is used to provide the students at our neighborhood public school with both critical staffing and exciting enrichment programs that make our school great.
The Laurelhurst PTA financially supports many programs that would not be provided at our school otherwise including an Art Program, Full Day Instrumental Music, Vocal/General Music, and even basics for classroom supplies, library books and technology support.

  • Spa and beauty treatments
  • Sports Memorabilia, included signed Russell Wilson, Dwaine Wade, and Reggie Bush jerseys 
  • Gift certificates for lots of great restaurants
