The 2018 Patwin Auction is Saturday, March 10th from 5:00 pm-8:00 pm at the Odd Fellows. The auction is Patwin's biggest fundraiser and is a fun community event, featuring food, music and of course, an auction.
We’re always looking for donations, so we’ve included some donation ideas and an FAQ section below. And please, let us know if you are interested in volunteering. We always appreciate the extra help.

Ask your talented friends to donate

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the fundraising goal?
Our annual goal is to raise $20,000. The money raised at the auction helps support the many essential programs paid for by Patwin PTA. This year we hope to raise funds that will continue to support our after-school programs in art and robotics as well as fund many other PTA supported programs and equipment.
Am I required to buy things in order to attend the auction?
Tickets to attend the auction admits you into the event with dinner, a fun trivia challenge and a whole lot of socializing with other Patwin parents. Once inside, you don’t have to spend a dime – although there is a lot of great merchandise to be found!
Are kids invited?
The auction is an adult-only event. This is a time for Patwin parents, family, and staff to get together, have some fun, and raise money for those important programs that we’ve come to expect from our school.
