What is Celebrate Epiphany?
It is our largest biennial community-building and fundraising event, held in odd-number years. Funds raised at the auction support a significant portion of our school’s operating expenses. This event helps us support our extraordinary teachers and specialists, contribute to our generous financial aid program, and provide classroom supplies, new technology, and materials. Our target is for 100% parent, faculty, trustee, and staff attendance for a night of mingling, dinner, and dancing.
We have several avenues of fundraising at the auction to help us achieve our goal of raising more than $550,000. In addition to the traditional silent auction, exciting live auction, and raise the paddle events, there is a raffle with unforgettable teacher and student experiences outside of school, an extensive selection of fine wines available to the highest bidders, and grade-level art masterpieces going home with lucky families.

Purchase single tickets to be a part of a larger group experience. In previous years we have had opportunities for students (bowling), moms (an evening at the Sorrento and a Sun Valley get away), dads (golf at Bandon Dunes and a night at the University Club), and couples (Oktoberfest dinner and a San Juan getaway), to name a few. Buy-Ins are available for purchase prior to the event and often fill up fast.
Our Silent Auction is full of incredible travel opportunities, special dining experiences, and fun activities available at many price levels. The Super Silent Auction is full of exclusive sporting opportunities, vacation properties, and goods offered in a higher price range. Keep in mind that there will be mobile bidding for the silent auction – meaning you will be able to track your items and bids from all over the venue.
WHAT IS THE EVENT FORMAT?
Our event usually includes a cocktail reception and silent auction followed by a sit-down dinner with a live auction. The evening is topped off with dancing to great music provided by a professional DJ.
Opportunities to purchase tickets, buy-ins, and raffle tickets are announced as we approach the auction.
