Save the Date for the Willard Gala Auction on Saturday, April 22, 2017!

Planning is underway for the Willard Gala Auction, an evening adult-only party and fundraiser for the Willard PTA to be held at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley. The Willard community comes together to put on this fun event and we look forward to celebrating with you.

All proceeds go to the Willard PTA to fund field trips, classroom technology, academic intervention and enrichment programs, mentoring, music and the arts, year-round sports, Willard community events (such as the Back to School Night Community Dinner, Black Excellence Night and Spring Day, Pi Day and the Culture Fair), the Growing Leaders cooking and gardening program and more.

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
