Got a question about the Discovery Parent Social and Auction? We’ve got you covered!
Q: What is the auction?
A: The Discovery Parent Social and Auction is an adults-only event for Discovery parents. It is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and it’s also a chance to catch up with friends and meet new ones. Parents of all grade levels, along with some teachers and staff, attend the event.
Q: Is there a deadline to buy tickets?
A: No. Tickets will continue to be sold up until the event–including at the door–but we ask that you purchase them as soon as possible to allow us to better plan for food and beverage needs.
Q: Will dinner be served?
A: A variety of hors d'oeuvres will be provided. There will also be beer, wine, mixed drinks, and a specialty bourbon cocktail, along with soft drinks. Food and drink are included in the ticket price.
Q: What is the dress code?
A: 80s costumes are welcome but not required. Casual, cocktail, or costume–the choice is yours! All we care about is that you come and support our school community!
Q: Can I attend just to socialize? Am I obligated to bid on an auction item?
A: We have a fantastic variety of items–including rental homes, Caps, Wizards, and Nats tickets, one-of-a-kind teacher experiences, a pool membership, and more–but there is no obligation to bid. We are excited to socialize with and get to know other Discovery parents and teachers.
Q: What is the price point of auction items?
A: There is something for everyone! Some of the auction items start as low as $10 for the opening bid. You are guaranteed to find something of interest!
Q: How do I bid on silent auction items?
A: The full auction catalog is here. The silent auction will be conducted via mobile bidding* and will open on Thursday, March 16th.
*You do not need to attend the event to participate in the silent auction. The live auction will be in-person.
