Just TEN DAYS until we open the doors to our “Cheers to 10 Years” celebration on Saturday, 4/21. Dig out your favorite cocktail attire and book the babysitter because we can’t wait to honor the teachers, the volunteers, and the community that has made Bonny Slope Elementary so special for the past ten years.
EXTENSIVE SILENT AUCTION
The adults-only excitement will begin with a must-see silent auction and cocktail hour. Over 60 silent auction items will be available, including photography sessions, professional and collegiate sports tickets, boutique jewelry, spa and shopping experiences, and various hotel stays. Rounding out the tables will be local excursions such as the Lumberyard, Sky High, and Pump It Up, children’s toys such as American Girl and Boo- the Cutest Dog on Earth, and many valuable gift baskets donated by Bonny Slope community members.
RAFFLES AND OTHER FUN OPTIONS
Aside from the silent auction, there will be a wide range of exciting items to peruse and purchase, including the Wine & Spirit Wall, the Dine & Dash Board, the teacher experiences and parent-hosted party sign-ups.
The always popular 50-50 Raffle only gets larger as more tickets are purchased. Another option is this year's Golden Ticket, where the winner immediately chooses one live auction package to take home. Both the 50-50 and Golden Raffle tickets are now available online.
LIVE AUCTION PREVIEW
Guests will then be seated to enjoy their full dinner, complete with an inaugural dessert dash. The biggest event of the night will be the live auction, emceed by our own BSE parent, Ava Palmquist, where lucky bidders will take home some beautiful student-made art as well as a diverse collection of vacation rentals and experiences.
Check out the 2018 Auction website for all the details and available items surrounding this year’s event. Ticket sales close on Thursday, 4/19.

Drink of DECADEnce
Each year we start off the bidding with alcohol reminiscent of the theme we are celebrating. This year is no different with our sophisticated and celebratory St. Germain and Champagne cocktail. We will provide you with enough glasses to share with your friends should you choose. Pop, fizz, clink and cheers to 10 years!
