Please Donate Items to the Auction!

Auctions need donated merchandise for guests to bid on. The sale of this merchandise is how we raise money for the school. Please consider donating:

  • New, unopened merchandise
  • Sports or theater tickets
  • Gift certificates
  • Jewelry, artwork, handicrafts or homemade foods/meals made by you or family members
  • Vacation homes owned by anyone you know (Does Grandma or Cousin Bob own a home in Tahoe or other resort area? Call them up and urge them to donate a stay there to the Gala.)
  • Time in your Berkeley cottage or in-law unit that out-of-town guests can stay in.
  • Professional services, lessons, or tours of your fascinating workplace
  • Donate a party or gathering that you host (like dinner parties, wine tastings, craft or workout parties, bike rides, hikes, group lessons in your favorite hobby for kids, adults or families). It’s a fun way to get together, meet new people and raise money for the school.
  • Or any other special donations you can think of
