Ticket Prices - Ticket prices are the same as the last three years! Matinee (early bird) tickets are available at the discounted price of $40 until March 4th. Thereafter, General Admission tickets will be $50. Sponsor Tickets are being sold again this year for $75.

ALL tickets get you entrance to the Silent Auction, a fantastic catered dinner (including a choice of a vegetarian entrée), and a seat for the Live Auction.

Sponsor Tickets - What makes a Sponsor Ticket so special? With the Sponsor Ticket you get a personalized stamp with your name and bidder number on it for quick and easy Silent Auction bidding; you also get a 1/2 bottle of table wine or $10 credit on a bottle of premium wine and a special surprise auction memento.

Confirmation - This year we are going to send you a confirmation with your assigned bidder number so you don't have to stand in a line on auction night. You can just walk in and start bidding at the silent auction!

Early Check In at The Office - Bring your credit card to the Peninsula School office on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of the week before the auction. We will swipe your card into the AuctionPay system at that time. Your credit card will be linked to your bidder number. You will be asked to sign a $0 balance receipt and will receive a copy, which eliminates the need for you to see a cashier at the end of the event. (All credit card information is securely stored in the AuctionPay system.) Then, you can use your bidder number for everything, at the party. Besides bidding in the auction, you can charge drinks & desserts.

Convenient Check In on Auction Night - You can check-in any time between 5:30 and 7 to get your bidder card for the live auction. If you didn't get your credit card entered into AuctionPay earlier, you can do that as well.

Easy Check Out on Auction Night - Whenever you decide to leave, you just proceed to a special AuctionPay line to receive your list of won items. There will be a cashier to handle checks and such. That means you can stay in your seat, sip your wine, enjoy the company and enjoy the auction until the very end.

We look forward to seeing all of you there!
