Steller Auction Report

A big Thank You to all the Students, Staff and Parents!  We are pleased to announce that the 2018 Steller Auction was a very successful event!  Everyone did a great job participating in Steller’s largest fundraiser of the year.  All money raised goes to fund programs such as Souper Steller, Travel Scholarships, Exchange programs, Intensive fees, Passage projects, Student and Teacher projects, and much more.  The evening was filled with lots of activities including a silent auction, a live auction, and international catered food and beverages.

 

Bidder’s had a wide selection of items generously donated from our community.  Items included a weekend retreat getaway, framed art, local restaurant gift cards, spa packages, house-hold decor, and a U.S. American Flag flown over U.S. Capital. Also, the Advisory Groups offered outstanding experience gift baskets too!

 

The event included a professional Auctioneer, Dan Newman, from Alaska Premiere Auctions.  Live Auction packages included trips to Las Vegas, and Mexico and local weekend retreats.

 

Also noteworthy, we streamlined our check-in and check-out process this year.  Bidders got checked in quickly thanks to bidders pre-registering and pre-swiping their credit cards.  And checkout was a breeze with as many as 5 check-out lanes available instead of just one.

 

The auction netted $10,533, an increase of $3248 over last year.  That’s great!  However, we are still shy of reaching our goal of $15,000, but you can still help us get there.  We are still accepting donations, and would encourage you to donate to help us reach our funding goal. 

 

Donate to keep our programs running all year:  DONATE HERE  All cash donations are tax deductible.  Steller Parent Group is recognized as a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit.

 

Thanks to all our volunteers, parents, students and teachers who helped make this years auction a success!
