2016 Auction | Mission: Possible
The 2016 Auction proved to be a fun and successful evening for our school. After raising a grand total of over $180,000, all funds from this event were designated to our Phase III building project including the new gym, library and chapel as well as the financial aid program. Guests began their evening with shrimp cocktail and cheese platters for appetizers while they browsed the silent auction tables. They were greeted by the stunning Mr. and Mrs. Lee on the red carpet in front of a classic black Mercedes Benz. Mr. Chen and his string trio serenaded the courtyard with classy music and folk. Our guests dressed their best for the spy-like black tie affair.
Some of our hot items included a woman's cruiser bike, Nespresso machine, braces & teeth whitening packages, vacations to Florida and Colorado, sign-up events, food packages, dining gift cards, concert tickets, designer scarves, jewelry, sports tickets and more!

The guests flowed from the silent auction into the tent where they enjoyed a fabulous dinner with a carving station of tri-tip and pork tenderloin catered by Englund's Catering.
The auctioneer kicked off the festivities with our first ever dessert dash. There were many incredible delicacies donated to the dash in which every table was able to choose the treat of their liking. Our live auction featured items such as a tour at Pixar Animation Studios, stay at Silverado Resort with Porsche rental, boating on Lake Berryessa, a Chiweenie puppy, and shooting instruction with police ride along. The night finished with an historical paddle raise after Mr. Steele's charge to help fund the new gym.
With the combination of the silent auction, Dessert Dash, live auction, paddle raise, dinner tickets, raffle tickets plus the online auction the week before, we were able to bring in over $180,000 giving us our most successful auction to date. Thank you all who came to support our school, helping our dreams of building a gym become a few steps closer to a reality.
