Q&A Do you want to know more about the NEST+m PTA Gala & Auction? Do you want to participate and volunteer but aren't sure where to begin? Let us help answer some of your questions!
What is the NEST+m Gala and Auction? The Gala and Auction will be April 4, 2017 at Hill Country BBQ in Brooklyn. It is a fabulous event for adults only. Parents, caregivers, teachers, staff and friends come together to enjoy great food, drinks, and the chance to bid on and win great items. There will be a live and silent auction. The NEST+m Jazz Combo Club will play in the beginning evening and when bidding closes, the DJ will spin us some tunes so we can dance until the end. The auction is the PTA’s largest fundraising event and the funds raised make up over 10% of the entire PTA budget. We urge every family to participate on every level possible. Solicit donations, buy raffle tickets, volunteer, help set up the day of the event and BID. Our collective efforts have a huge impact on the quality of our children’s education.
What is a “Silent Auction”? Silent auctions are auctions held without an auctioneer. Using your smart phone as a bidding device, you place bids on items. When the silent auction ends, the highest bid per item wins and you can take it home with you that evening! The silent auction will showcase Class Projects, Teacher Treats and other goodies like restaurant gift certificates, services and merchandise.
What is the “Live Auction”? During the Gala, on April 4th , there will be a Live Auction with an auctioneer. These are usually our bigger ticket items; including special events, trips, unique behind-the-scenes opportunities, or other exceptional items.
What is the “Bidding for Good Online Auction”? We will auction off hundreds of items online. It will start February 24th and end on March 6th . This will be on Bidding for Good. Bidding and winning will happen on many summer camps to choose from, after school classes, tutoring, services and much more. This auction platform acts like eBay and anyone outside our community can register and bid.
How do I buy tickets? You will be able to purchase your tickets online starting in March. Doing so will pre-register you for the event and significantly speeds up your check-in time at the event on April 4, 2017. Food and beverages will be included in the ticket price. A text will be sent to you the day before the event with your bidding number and you will be able to see the list of silent items and start bidding! Want to volunteer? Have comments or suggestions?
