Children's Auction Overhaul - Get Excited!
This year's Children's Auction is getting a few new attractions! This FREEfamily event is to give the students a chance to get in on the Auction fun.
Wednesday, February 19
This year, there will be:
- Bidding on Children/Teen Items
- Popcorn & Ice Cream Bar
- Mouse Races
- Jail and Bail
- Make Your Own Mask

- Teacher Day Sneak Peek
New this year are Mouse Races, a new craze in fundraisers! Place your bets on your favorite mouse to take home cold hard cash.
How does it work?
There are 6 races with a championship 7th race that pits the previous winners head-to-head for a Grand Champion Winner.
The race track is 10 feet long and stands upright on a skirted table. Each track is individually lit so everyone throughout the room can view all the action. Pick your favorite mouse and cheer them on during the race.
Between each race, tickets are sold starting at $2 each until each of the slots are filled. A mouse is placed on the Winner's (Roulette) Wheel and set free to wander. The first slot the mouse wanders into wins half the cash pot!
Want the opportunity to name a race winning mouse? Sponsor a mouse for $20! With your sponsorship you get to choose the name of your mouse. There are only 36 sponsorship spaces available and we expect them to go quickly so jump on the opportunity today!
