It’s time to THINK AUCTION! Each year, Oakhill Day School hosts an annual auction, which is the largest fundraiser of the year, raising anywhere from $150,000 - $250,000 in funds used on everything from curriculum development to keeping the lights on. All for Oakhill students, today! This year the stakes are higher and we want to make this the biggest and best auction year yet. There are lots of surprises and changes coming to this year’s event so stay tuned!

The auction would not be possible without the generosity of the Oakhill parents, staff, and surrounding community businesses.

This year's event will occur in two parts!

Saturday, March 4, 2023 Silent Auction Extravaganza

Night one of the ODS Auction is a silent auction, casino night, and fun social event at Outlaw Cigar and Brewery! Included in the ticket price is bidding, food and drink, and starter $$$ for those who want to take part in the casino games. We will also have auction games with fun prizes for all guests in attendance. All bidders can bid online by mobile device, so non-attendees can also bid. Invite friends and family, dress casual or fun, whatever you would like and get ready to bid often and bid big for ODS!

Kid’ Club is offering add-on childcare at the school for this event!

Thank you to the Culbertson Family for providing the amazing event space!

2023 Tickets & Extras



Fund-a-Need 2023

Each year during the annual auction, Oakhill designates an area of the school to be the Fund-a-Need project! This project is usually a school area where updates, replacements, or installation were not otherwise budgeted. This year's Fund-a-Need will not only be a new playground area but will provide outdoor classroom spaces for the entire school, grades Pretoddler through 12th grade!

Project Details Coming Soon!



Raffle 2023

Don't forget! To avoid being billed for this year's auction raffle tickets, they must be returned to school by tomorrow, Friday, January 20. If illness or other concerns will keep you from being able to return your tickets tomorrow, please let us know ASAP! Just because the bill account deadline is tomorrow, that does not mean that you cannot continue to sell tickets to family and friends or pick up a couple of extras for yourself!

Any unreturned tickets (of the original book of 5) will appear on your February Blackbaud Tuition bill. If you requested additional tickets to sell but have not yet returned them, we will not charge you for what you still have in your possession, giving you plenty of time to continue to sell! If you have any questions about the raffle, don't hesitate to contact us by email. We cannot issue any Blackbaud account credits once the raffle drawing occurs on Saturday, March 4 during our Gold Rush silent auction event at Outlaw Cigar and Brewery.

Thank you for supporting Oakhill and this year's Auction!
