Extensions! Extensions! Read all about the Auction Updates...
Sat, Nov 2 2:19pm


If you are thinking that you lost out on a few bids... YOU ARE WRONG!

Due to the PG&E outage...

we have EXTENDED the online auction until Wednesday, November 6th.

Last chance to place bids will be 9:00pm that day. 

If you really want to win an item, you can also use OTTO, which is the auto-bid tool!

Once someone bids against you, it will automatically place a new bid to keep you on top. 

No more disappointing messages that you have been outbid!

May the best OTTO win!

And if you want to win at all costs (and for a good cause)...

Don't be afraid to go over the value of the item! 

Here's a reminder of some excellent deals right now such as:
~Redwood Heights Airbnd
~Lair of the Bear Family Camp
~Mountain Bike
~Custom Family Video
~Architect consultation with Fink Architecture


(had to throw in a shout out to my Hubby's for his donation)


Check out the class art projects HERE!

Here is a sample of what you'll view:

They are STUNNING works of art! That you can proudly wear or frame!

Once you look at the rest of the slide show of the silk scarves and kiddos at work, you'll be moved!

BUT, if supporting your kid's art endeavors wasn't enough of a reason to bid...
The winning bidders from each of these art projects will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a pair of Disneyland Park Hopper tickets!! We will have two winners (each winner gets a pair of tickets) for this awesome prize, so your chances are very very good! 
And while you are at the auction site, do not forget to buy your tickets to the Gala! 
But, if you aren't on the site because you are reading this awesome auction highlight,

Dinner, Drinks, Dancing, Live Auction excitement, Photobooth...

Auction Parties are generally hosted by parents or teachers. Target audiences might be just adults, kids-only, entire families, or you can take all comers. You pick the theme, the price, the maximum number of guests, etc., and work with our party coordinator to secure a date. 

Hosting a party is perhaps the easiest way to make a huge contribution because they generate the largest portion of total auction revenue. And they are great ways to connect with the awesome people that make up our RHS community. 

Here are some FAQs to help you determine what kind of party you can host:  


Deadline for Auction Party Donations is THIS MONDAY.

We have a great dinner planned for the Auction Party...
Wouldn't it be nice to follow that up with a beautiful, indulgent piece of cake?
Or maybe a fistful of rich chocolate truffles?
A huge piece of fruity pie?
Then, come prepared to bid on a variety of desserts that RHS home bakers are donating to the cause. This year, we're please to offer the desserts as a live auction! Perhaps you want to pool your resources with your tablemates; or be the hero and buy something for everyone to share! We'll have a wide range of options, and remember, it's all for the kids.
Raise those bid numbers!   

We will once again be collecting wine and spirits to auction off at our Harvest for Learning event on November 16th. The collection drive will kick off Tuesday November 5th and run through Thursday November 14th. Please cruise through the drop off lane to donate wine/spirits for a worthy cause! Bottles should be unopened and at least $15 in value.

If you are unable to drive through or pop over to the drop off lane,

please call/text Stacey Foster Martz at 650-814-8232 for personal pick up!

We could use your help with collection!

Collection boxes can be picked up from the drop off lane equipment cubby.

Please leave the box in the office afterwards.
