Up for bid are fabulous vacation homes, parties, community events, business services and sporting opportunities, in addition to very unique items offered by M-A parents and teachers. The difference from other school auctions? Everything is online, from the auction catalog on www.maauction.org, to the live auction for a week on eBay. There is no event and no cost to put on this auction - - every dollar raised supports M-A students and programs through the Foundation for the Future.
The success of the first year's auction was outstanding, raising $50,000, but, according to Trish Gump,, "it went beyond raising funds; the auction fills a void at M-A by offering chances for parents to come together at fun parties, and for community members and businesses to support our school. People are very generous and seem excited to be a part of this, no one turns us down!" As a result, the items are incredible, diverse and very fun.
