Auction of Promises

This event is run every two years to avoid compassion fatigue. This has been a very successful (and happy) way of raising funds for the school.

How is it Organised
The event usually takes place in the school hall in an evening after school. A professional auctioneer needs to be found together with some impressive auction items. Parents are asked to donate or supply items. The hall needs to be set up as an auction with seating, item cards, refreshments, a lectern and good sound.

Lead Parent Volunteer
The FOBG Chairs organise this with support from parents. Volunteers needed for set up, serving drinks and clear up.
