 2020  Annual Benefit Auction


Saturday, March 28th
4:00pm to 9:00 pm




  Best Santa Cruz private schoolMarch brings our annual special school event, our largest event of the year!

  And everyone is invited!

  The auction team is working hard to put together this year's fabulous school auction.

  This year's auction theme is

Growing Kindness

We look forward to a fun evening with Tara Redwood families and friends to celebrate the nurturing of our children's innate kindness.

Families are welcome to extend invitations to family members and friends by making a simple donation toward cost of their tickets. $ 35 is the suggested donation.

If you are not familiar with the auction, it is a special evening where families and friends of the school will get to have fun and mingle, enjoy great food, get great deals on a variety of items, and most and foremost support out wonderful little school during the silent auction and then the exciting live auction. Raffle prizes will also be drawn for all the Tara parents who shared a moment during Raffles4Reviews.

During the live auction we will be auctioning off  some amazing artwork that the children are making right now! 

Another important part of the evening during the event is the annual Fund-a-Need part of the evening.

Families and friends will get a chance to contribute to special school programs.

Please let anybody interested in supporting a special school program know about this opportunity to participate.

Last year we raised money for our new garden and playground, computers for teachers, and music and performance art activities.

This year's programs will be announced soon.

Company Matching donation programs – Double the donation

This year we are also asking the parents that work for large companies/corporations to look into their companies possibly matching their donations or possibly contributing in some other significant way. Many corporations match donations made by employees to nonprofits, to support employee charitable giving, and to extend corporate philanthropy. Each company has its own paperwork and directions on how it works. Check in with your HR Department to see if they have a matching donation program.

2020 Auction Committee TBA
This major fundraising event is sponsored by our Parent Volunteer Group and needs the attendance of all parents to make it a success, so please mark this date on your calendars now. The money directly benefits EVERY CHILD at Tara.

Contact the Auction Committee Chairperson for any information or donations.
