Why Host an Auction?

FPE Foundation funds are the only way to provide additional staff (PEOPLE) for our school above and beyond the district’s annual staffing allocation. Funds will be used for additional teaching staff including Educational Assistants (EAs) and Technology to directly support teachers and students.  The auction is currently our largest Foundation fundraiser of the year.  The Auction for years has brought together the community to celebrate our success, have some fun and raise money. 

Thank you to everyone who has helped so far!

It takes a village to organize, create and work and we need your help to pull off a successful event everyone can enjoy.  We want to thank the many tireless volunteers who have helped us prepare for the event thus far and for those who will continue to help through the evening of the event.
