Fundraiser set for Oct. 24
Christchurch School is auctioning online a number of fun and unique items as part of its annual silent and live auction to be held on Saturday, October 24, on the campus of Christchurch School.
Auction proceeds will directly benefit the education and life of the students at Christchurch School.
The online auction will be open for bidding through October 30 at 11:59 p.m.
“We invite our extended community to take part in our first annual online auction,” said an event spokesperson. “To be part of the excitement go to http://www.christchurchschool.org and click on the Bid Now! button. You will enjoy the special selection of local restaurants, shops and artisan fare. Please join us on the evening of October 24 for a dinner and live auction under the big tent overlooking the Rappahannock River at Christchurch School.
The raffle is a 50/50, which means if $10,000 in tickets is sold, the winner receives $5,000. Tickets are $5 for 1 ticket, or $20 for 5 tickets. The drawing will take place at dinner on Saturday, October 24. The winner need not be present to win.
The silent auction is from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on October 24. Item categories include: getaways, fine art, all that glitters, entertainment and leisure, for the athlete, food and wine, clothing and accessories, and popular special categories of items for students.
The live event will be held during dinner under the tent on the lawn. A very few select items will be auctioned live during dinner. Space is limited for dinner. Tickets are $25 for adults, $15 for children ages 12 to 18, and children 11 and under are admitted free as are Christchurch students.
