Time to gather your besties and make your plans for the auction! This year’s live auction gala on Friday, April 12th will sail us away for an evening of fun, food, and friends. 🛥️ Join us at the Walnut Creek Marriott Hotel at 6PM to celebrate the evening with dinner, fundraising and dancing.

Here’s the deets!

TABLES: Want to ensure you’re sitting with your school besties at the auction? Gather your group and plan to log in TOMORROW Wednesday, February 7th at 7PM to purchase one of the few available tables for ten (10 people) for $1,500. Limited Supply so don’t delay!

TICKETS: Remaining individual tickets will go on sale the next day, Thursday, February 8th at 7PM for $150 per person.

We’ve moved to a new space to be able to accommodate more people, but space is still limited, so you’ll want to grab a ticket and save your spot using our auction website.
