Do I have to buy something at the auction?
While a ticket is required to attend the event, you are under no obligation to bid on or buy anything during the evening. Everybody in the Cherry Crest community is encouraged to come out and show their support just by attending this entertaining evening of food, drink, and mingling – help build our community simply by meeting up with old friends or making some new ones! Of course, many people find that once they are there, they see a teacher experience they are interested in, fall in love with their child’s classroom art piece, decide to try their luck at a gift certificate to one of the area’s top restaurants, join forces with their friends to upgrade the dessert at their table, or get excited to attend one of the themed community parties or sports events that have been donated by other parents. So if you do plan on bidding, keep in mind there is something for every budget – starting at as little as $10 among the silent auction items all the way up to a thousand dollars or more for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the live auction! In any case, your level of commitment is entirely up to you – our main goal is for you to have FUN!
