Benefit Auction

It might have been the best Benefit Auction in Logos School’s history! Nearly 300 friends of Logos School filled the SEL Event Center for the Kentucky Derby themed “Run for the Roses” event.  People didn’t just come for the wonderful food and entertainment; they came ready to raise money for the students of Logos School. By the time the festive evening ended, the event raised $96,142, surpassing last year by over $10,000!
Thresh Catering, owned by Katie (Gray ’01) Grauke, did a great job with a southern-style menu. Local band Shiloh & the Young Guns played their plucky repertoire; and guests had opportunity t0 fellowship, bid, and enjoy the Derby photo booth throughout the evening.
The 15 spectacular packages in the Live Auction drew enthusiastic bidding, keeping the spotters on their toes. Logos third grader Jemma Driskill’s award-winning muffins ($525), a Private Party for 30 at Tapped ($4,000), and a Four Day, and a Three Night Whitewater Adventure for Eight on Idaho’s Lower Salmon River Gorge ($4,500) were just some of the highlights during the Live auction . Total revenue from the Live Auction was $44,600.
A big part of the proceeds from the Live Auction was the Fund-A-Need.  $24,200 was raised for the purchase of a school van.
Patrons had  136 items to choose from in the Silent Auction time with selections ranging from Disneyland tickets to golf packages to artwork. The bidding raised $20,520.
