Planning for the Chesapeake Academy Auction

The auction is known as one of the Northern Neck’s most successful, entertaining, and long-standing social events.
Preparations are under way for Chesapeake Academy’s annual silent and live dinner auction to be held Saturday, May 2, on the Rowe Campus in Irvington. An eclectic and dedicated group of volunteers are busy planning this major fundraiser, known as one of the Northern Neck’s most successful, entertaining, and long-standing social events.

Chesapeake’s Annual Auction, packed with surprises, excellent prizes, great deals, unusual and useful products, trips and services, is a vital annual school fundraiser—supplementing academic programs while helping fund scholarships for eligible students.

This year’s auction theme, S.T.A.R.S. or “Celebrating Students, Teachers, and Alumni Reaching Success,” borrows upon the mass of talent accrued over the past decades of the school’s history. In lieu of an auction chair or co-chairs, Chesapeake is taking an “it takes a village approach” to the event’s planning and implementation, calling on former auction chairs and outstanding volunteers of parents, grandparents, alumni parents, alumni and those all-essential friends in the community for the wisdom, creativity, and muscle it takes to bring this much-anticipated event to fruition.

The enjoyment of procuring items, such as original artwork, furniture, jewelry, lessons, resort vacations, cruises, and specialty services from individuals and businesses throughout the Northern Neck and beyond is well under way.

For more information or to donate an item to the auction, contact Catherine Emry via email or phone 438-5575. The Auction Procurement and Sponsorship form is also available on the school’s website at
