The FPE PTA Auction “The Great Gatsby” is coming soon so Save the Date for Saturday March 4th!  The doors will open at 5:00 PM for cocktail/raffle tickets.  Dinner and live auction starts at 7pm.

Tickets on Sale now:

Purchase by February 11th @ $45.00/person (includes light buffet dinner and 1 drink ticket) or to secure a table of 10 for $500 (complimentary bottle of champagne).  After February 11th tickets will go up to $55/person, and no option to purchase a table.  Note – teacher tickets are offered at reduced cost, why not sponsor a teacher!

This is the biggest fundraiser for the school which goes directly to supporting our students, teachers and community.  The auction provides essential services for our students. These funds provide resources which include but are not limited to: our School Counselor, program support for the school’s library, physical education, visual arts and music grants, scholarships for families experiencing hardship, school supplies and classroom support, educational field trips and assemblies, and much, much more! On a lighter note, this is a FUN event and provides a way to foster our community spirit.

Where:  The Hall at Fauntleroy – 9131 California Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98136

It will take a lot of dedicated volunteers to make it a success.  To volunteer go to the volunteer page here and sign up for Auction Preparation and/or Auction Night.

Donation Ideas

Don’t know how or what to donate to the Fairmount Park Elementary School Auction? Don’t worry we’ve got ideas!

Work those Contacts – Got Company Connections? Our corporate donation requests are more successful when they come from someone with a connection to the company. Some companies will only donate if the request is from an employee, board member or season ticket holder.

We would love your help contacting the Pacific Northwest Ballet, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Opera, Seattle Symphony, Museum of Glass, Holland America Line, Seattle Art Museum, Teatro Zinzanni, hotels, airlines, and anyone else you have a connection to.

Think Outside Yourself – Ask your family and friends to donate. This is a great way for grandparents, aunts and uncles, even those that live far away, to be involved in your child’s education.

Create an Adventure – Are you a hiker, skier, hunter, fisher, sailor, or kayaker? Volunteer to host a group doing what you already have fun doing!

Host a Fun Event! – If you love to cook or entertain, throw a party, donate dinners to go, or cater a meal. Just a few ideas – themed or ethnic dinner, wine pairings, beer tastings, spa night, game night, movie night, cocktail party, picnic lunches, afternoon tea
