Bonny Slope’s 2019 Auction – Results are In!

auctionbanner.jpg

This year’s “Swing into Spring” auction event at Top Golf was an evening to remember. NET fundraising results for this year’s event are already over $30k – and that’s BEFORE adding the accompanying matching funds, meaning that this year’s event continues BSCO’s legacy of strong and purposeful support of the teachers, classrooms, and students of Bonny Slope.

Parents, teachers, staff and community members descended upon Top Golf on April 14 to participate in this annual fundraising event.  The Auction is BSCO’s second major fundraiser of the year, following last fall’s Jog-a-thon. Proceeds will fund the balance of BSCO’s annual budget, as well as provide support for BSCO’s STEM programs.

If you were unable to attend, but are still interested in participating, there are opportunities still available. Select parties and gift certificates are available for purchase and an 11x14 print of the fifth grade mosaic is available to buy online.  

Head over to the auction website (https://bonnyslopebsco.ejoinme.org/Tickets) to look through the options.  All the money you spend goes to BSCO!

A huge thanks to our amazing organizing committee for their tireless work, to the many parents who assisted with the classroom art, and to those who donated items to the auction packages.

And a very special round of applause to our Auction Sponsors:

With the excitement of the snow this week it’s easy to look towards warmer weather.  Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 14th as you are invited to join us at the Bonny Slope Spring Auction! Our auction and game play will run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Top Golf in Hillsboro.  

Tickets on sale February 22nd!

This year we are very excited to host our annual auction on a new day and at a new location.  The primary focus of the auction is to raise funds to support our BSCO programs, our BSE classrooms and our students.  With that in mind we want to ensure that funds raised by YOU go towards the programs for YOUR students. As in the past, the evening will allow for the community to gather and to connect as we help to support our BSCO programs.  

So come and take a few swings in the golf bays, bid to win one of the many silent auction packages, and make some new friends over dinner and drinks.  It is sure to be an evening you won’t fore-get!

Things to know:

golf logo for website.jpg

Q. Will the fundraiser still feature a silent auction?

A. Yes. We will have a prize-filled silent auction like in previous years. The live auction will not be included as all items will be featured in the silent auction. We’re also trying out new technology for easy bidding while you play your round of golf.  

Q. Is this still a community-building event?

A. Yes. The golf theme and backdrop is just the location for the auction.  We will have plenty of space to mingle and connect with other members of our wonderful BSE community. No golfing experience necessary for the TopGolf game play activities.

Q. Can I bring my kids?

A. No. While Top Golf is a fun family activity, the auction event is an adults-only night. Come check out the location and book a tee-time for another family outing.

Q. Is this a theme party?

A. Yes and No! We know our community loves a theme so if you feel like it fairway attire is encouraged. Of course dressing up is always optional.  The photo booth will have fun golf themed props for you no matter how you arrive.


Q. What if I can’t attend?

A. There are many ways for you to support BSCO programs outside of attending the auction. There will also be raffle tickets and teacher experiences available to purchase on the auction website in the coming weeks.  You can also offer your support by volunteering or donating items.


Q. Want to sponsor the event, donate items for the silent auction, or help with the event planning?

A. We need you!  Send an e-mail to auction@bonnyslopebsco.org

Pancake Breakfast Hits the Spot!

Bonny Slope Elementary’s fifth grade class hosted its annual Pancake Breakfast this past Saturday. Over 600 people ate pancakes, sausages, and oranges, and washed it all down with juice and coffee. The fifth grade raised more than $5,500 to help with this year’s science school, to be held February 28th and March 1st.
