5th Annual Dinner Auction

The 2008 Parkrose Educational Foundation Auction was another big success with net proceeds of over $22,000 The Holiday Inn-Airport accommodated 225 guests bidding in both a silent and live auction format.  An on site demonstration of a Prometheus Smart Board was a highlight of the Auction.  $7,000 of the proceeds were dedicated to purchasing two Prometheus instruction tools for classrooms in the District.  The use of this technology accommodates data base information access through the internet with visual display capabilities that advance the use of a traditional blackboard into the realm of current electronic technology.

The Foundation remains dedicated to advancing the educational experience of students with the District and will using proceeds from the Auction to grant a variety of funding requests over the next year.

Our Auction Committee is busy getting organized for next year, with the Auction planned for Saturday, April 25th, 2009.  We are grateful to the support we receive from local businesses, donors throughout the region and volunteers that make the Auction possible.
