3rd Annual Dinner Auction

The 2006 Parkrose Educational Foundation Auction was another huge success. The event was staged at the Holiday Inn Portland Airport which provided a very accommodating venue for a charitable auction. In all, the Auction raised over $35,000 with $10,025 dedicated solely to the Promising Futures program a district-wide homeless student emphasis project.

150 attendees enjoyed the Ron Horton Band followed by an excellent dinner. The live auction was again hosted by our auctioneers, Pat n Pat Brothers and complemented by the DJ experience of Scott Thom KISN radio. The Hats off to Parkrose theme included a hat judging contest with lots of options to consider as many participated and everyone enjoyed the fun. One lucky guest won the opportunity to select one of the Live Auction items, before they went up for bid. They had purchased a $50.00 ticket for the chance at having their name drawn. Several of the choices before them were valued at over $1,500. Auction proceeds also help meet the Foundations commitment for grants requested by teachers, staff and students throughout the year.

The 2005-2006 grant budget was $10,000. By the end of the fiscal year more than $10,000 was awarded to various projects and activities throughout the District. We are looking forward to the 2007 Auction, Rolling out the Red Carpet for Parkrose Students! Check out photos from the event on our Facebook page!
