- What is the Auction?
A. Aside from the annual fund, the auction is the only fundraiser Saint Mark does. Funds raised go school improvements and additional programs to enhance the educational experience of St. Mark students.
Q. How does An Auction work?
A. Silent auction bidding begins at 5:30 pm. Items are separated into categories and each category closes bidding at different times. The highest bid wins the item when that category closes. There will be online bidding prior to the event. Dinner and the Live auction begins at 7:30 pm.
Q. What do I get for $125 a ticket?
A. A fun-filled adult night out that supports your child’s school programs! You also receive a lovely sit-down dinner in a beautiful venue, wine with dinner, dancing, gaming and a live auction.
Q. What if I can’t attend the auction? Can I still bid?
A. We certainly hope you can come, but there is an online component prior to the event in which you can place your bids should you be unable to attend.
