Jefferson Gala & Auction
Scottish Rite Masonic Center

5:00 - 10:00 pm

Online Auction

March 7 - 14, 2018


The Jefferson Gala & Auction is the largest fundraising event of the year, but more important it’s an opportunity to connect with other Jefferson parents and teachers in a fun-filled evening with food, dancing, and the opportunity to raise important funds for our children.

Our Auction consists of a week-long ONLINE AUCTION followed by the GALA & AUCTION EVENT. You can participate in one or both to support our school.

Online Auction: Before our Gala & Auction Event, we will have a week-long Online Auction, where you can support our school by bidding on a variety of items from the comfort of your home! Most gift certificates and tickets will be available at our Online Auction only.
Catch a sneak preview of some of the items here.

Gala & Auction Event: This is the biggest party of the year, where you can bid on items in the Silent Auction and Live Auction while enjoying food, beer, wine, and music. You can also make a 100% tax-deductible donation during Fund-a-Need and dance to music by a live DJ.  All Class Art Projects, most of the Teacher Outings, and most of the Parent-hosted Buy-In Parties will be available only at the Gala & Auction Event.
Get your tickets to the party here.


We are grateful to our wonderful donors!  Here are a few:
 Steve and Kates Camp Camp EDMO Renegade Tinkering Camp SF SPCA


#1 COLLECT DONATIONS: Contact your favorite businesses to donate. You can donate online and/or find a solicitation letter and donation form here.  Donations are due Feb 1st.

Best-sellers: restaurant, shops & spa gift certificates, travel and vacation homes, travel packages, tickets for sporting events, concerts and shows; wine; experiences.


#2 HOST A BUY-IN PARTY: Think about fun events you can host for parents, kids, or both! Love James Bond? Host a 007 Party. Crafty?  Host a parent & kids Pints and Paints party. Organize a cooking lesson, a hiking or camping trip, or a behind-the-scenes tour.  Kids love to get involved too, so have them host:  baking parties, Minecraft parties, sporting events, etc.

It doesn’t have to be elaborate to be fun, and these are always great fundraisers.

Contact Emma Smith with your idea, or to get one.


#3 SHARE A SPECIAL SKILL: Donate services and/or items provided by our talented Jefferson families. Teach a group how to dance, play an instrument, fly-fish, cook, hit a line drive, knit.  Or offer your special talents like delicious home cooked meals or baked goods, home brewed beer, photography, web design, etc.

Contact Sara Wilson for ideas or to donate.


#4 DONATE WINE: Drop off wine for the Gala and Live Auction Event bar in the Main Office at school.

Contact Jade Pugh with questions or to arrange pickup.


Tickets are now on sale.  Get them here.
