Oh, what a night! It was a magical evening underneath the arena at the Corfee Family Ranch. All was abuzz from guests taking in the décor, music, and each other's conversations and good company.
We had more than 170 guests who came eager to bid on new sign up parties, teacher excursions, silent auction items, as well as casting their vote for the best tasting salsa! And of course it wouldn't be a school auction without a lively game of Heads or Tails, which drew much laughter and cheers from both players and onlookers.
The evening was bookended by even more excitement and entertainment during the live auction with thrilling bidding wars on items like the "Super Bowl Party" package, "Wild Game" dinner, and our most coveted and highly prized parking space (arguably in all of South Davis): the Pioneer Principal's parking spot.
We all walked away feeling like winners, but the true winners and benefactors of the evening are the students and teachers of Pioneer. And for that, we are so grateful to our most generous and great-hearted Pioneer parent community! We not only exceeded our fundraising goal, but we also raised enough money directly for the Fund-an-Item that the school may now purchase two complete sets of chrome books for our students to use during THIS school year!
Now if you were unable to attend the school auction, there is still an opportunity to bid on remaining sign up parties and teacher excursions, as well as donating directly to the Chrome Books Fund-an-item for the school to purchase a third set, as our goal is to provide a complete chrome book set for each grade level. To continue to donate to the fund-an- item, please go to www.pioneerauction.org. Please also look for an email with information about the Fire Sale to bid on the remaining teacher excursions and sign up parties.
Finally, please know that the Pioneer PTA Executive Board is heartened and humbled by this year's auction success. We strive to make an impactful difference in our school community by providing enriching academic opportunities that will benefit all our K-6 grade students. We recognize that this can only be accomplished with an engaged and active parent community. Therefore, we thank you, we appreciate you, and we couldn't have done this without you!
