The 2021 Bids for Kids Virtual Auction Gala & Kids’ Night In is Almost Here!
Mar Vista School’s 35th Annual Bids for Kids Auction Gala and Kids’ Night In is almost here and we’re going virtual. “In Honor of All Our Heros” is an amazing fundraiser evening full of fantastic items for bidding, live auction items, entertainment, and special activities for the kids!! Join us on Zoom Saturday, March 6th at 6:00 PM.
Not only is attending the virtual auction and bidding on fabulous items crucial to our school enrichment programs, it is a community gathering of individuals who are all committed to our great school. Surround yourself with great people for a great cause! Get the kids settled on the Kids’ Night In Zoom and join the Adults on another Zoom for fundraising fun.
All money raised will fund the programs that make Mar Vista the school we are so proud of. Without this event and our dedicated parents, teachers, and school staff who volunteer their time, expertise, and resources, Mar Vista would not be the phenomenal school we know and love. The Auction is an integral part of the school’s ability to fund art programs, teacher aides in the lower grades, an invaluable instructional coach, and computer and science classes, among others.
Thanks to our community’s generosity and commitment, we expect to raise a lot of money for our school during this unprecedented time!
Come in costume as your favorite SuperHero or Essential Worker (encouraged, but not required). Come alone or as a household…but whatever you do, please be there! RSVP for free on the auction website.*
View the Auction Catalog beginning February 24th. You can start “watching” your favorite items or pre-bid…and don’t forget to bid high!
Even if you can’t attend the virtual auction, you can still participate in the fun! Just go to our auction website and keep bidding on everything from fabulous tangible items to unforgettable excursions and experiences.
Register early so we know your coming!
We will also have an Adult Only Live Comedy Night in the spring (celebrity talent to be named soon). Tickets will be $125 and are for sale on the Auction Website.
Class Baskets & Staff Outings
Bidding for these highly coveted items and experiences takes place only via a Google form linked in the Auction Catalogue between 2/24 and 3/4 at 10:00 PM
