Here's the skinny: You'll want to join us for the annual QAE PTSA auction—a far-out night that will make a huge difference in the lives of our children, while celebrating everything that makes QAE so special.
This year we're doing it in style with a groovy 70s theme! Costumes optional but encouraged!
You’ll be part of a stellar group of people rallying around the kids to provide them with social-emotional learning, reading and math specialists, supplies, and so much more (see the PTSA fundraising page to learn more about the programs we fund).
There will be a silent auction, a live auction, dancing and a slammin' celebrity auctioneer: John Curley!
The timeline will be:
5:00 - 6:30PM: Check-in
5:00 - 6:45PM: Silent auction and cocktail hour
7:00 - 9:00PM: Dinner and live auction
9:00 - ?? : Dancing!
Also stay tuned for the online auction catalog; we'll announce when bidding is open.
It'll be out of sight.
Ticket sales are now closed. Thank you for your support and see you on March 10th!
