Silent Auction – FAQ’s

What is the silent auction and what’s the big deal?

By now you have probably read about the big auction happening on Friday evening, March 11th at The Gathering Place in Clarksville. The auction is a biennial event but provides over 60% of our funding! If you’re new to TRES or have never attended the auction, I strongly encourage you to purchase tickets this year and join us. It is a wonderful parents night out where you can have delicious food, spend time with other TRES parents and bid on some excellent auction items. It’s also a great time to mingle with the many TRES teachers and staff who attend the auction!

This sounds like a fancy event. Do I have to get dressed up?
Here’s the best part – NO!! Friday nights are meant for unwinding and that’s why we chose the theme “Blue Jeans and Bling!” Throw on your favorite jeans, dress them up or down – your choice!

What are these “grade basket” emails that I received?
Each grade makes one or two themed baskets which go to the highest bidder on the night of the auction. The contents of the baskets are made up of contributions from parents in that grade. Please take a moment to go onto the Sign Up genius for your child’s grade and sign up for an item. If you’d prefer we happily take cash or gift card donations for the basket coordinators to shop for items. If you have not received the sign up genius for your grade(s) please email us atTRESPTA1@GMAIL.COM.

Can parents contribute auction items?
YES! Many families in the past have contributed stays at their vacation home, sports tickets, music lessons, photography sessions, products from their companies and more. If you are wiling and able to donate auction items or if you or your business would like to make a cash donation or sponsor our event, please contact Missy Rohrbach missyr@gmail.com or Amy Brewsterbrewsteramye@gmail.com and we will happily work with you!

Will there be any auction items that interest me?
We will have auctions items for everyone! From Adele concert tickets (yes, you read that correctly) and Walt Disney World passes to local camp tuition and dinner gift certificates. Our most popular items are class pottery and our “Faculty Follies.” You could win a chance for your child to be Principal for a Day, Front Row seats to 5th grade graduation, VIP parking for TRES events, priceless activities for your children and their TRES teachers and much more!

What is this class pottery that I keep hearing about?
Each classroom, with the help of a parent volunteer, creates a priceless piece of pottery to be auctioned on March 11th. The pottery is VERY popular and is a wonderful memory of your child’s time at TRES this year. Each item is unique and beautifully done- look for them in the TRES display case as we get closer to the auction!

How do I buy tickets and what will the evening be like?
Invitations will be coming home in Friday folders soon. There will be plenty of delicious food, a cash bar and music. We will have a silent auction, a live auction for the large, most popular items, parent and teacher raffles and much, much more!
