Phantom of the Aces Auction 2014
This auction, held just every two years allows us to avoid selling candy, cookie dough, magazines and other overpriced items door to door. Our goal is for each school family to help with this event in some small way -- by attending, donating an item or becoming a sponsor, or even helping with set up and tear down at the venue.
All event proceeds will be used to purchase technology equipment, an outdoor educational atrium at our elementary school, reading materials, cultural events such as author, artist and musician visits, as well as and gym & playground equipment. Proceeds from this auction directly benefit ALL K-6 students. We need your help to make this event a success! Don't forget, this auction historically sells out!
Each class creates an amazing project that is auctioned off live at this event by professional auctioneers, and there are many other items and baskets available in the silent auction -- and for those of you that aren't into bidding wars, there will also be a "Buy It Now" table. There will be everything from spa packages to autographed CDs, racing jerseys & footballs to a vacation in Mexico. And don't forget the ever popular ride to school on a fire truck or in a police car!
Please join us for a fun, adult night out -- it's truly an event that you won't want to miss. This night is for adults, but we are there to support our kids! The event is open to all Granville parents, and their friends & families.
