7th Annual Dinner Auction

The Auction was staged this year at the John Q Hammons Conference Center at the Portland Airport Holiday Inn on Saturday, April 25th. We were exited to try a new (yet familiar) venue for our 7th Annual event. In addition to the Debonairs, the Parkrose H.S. Jazz Band ensemble provided pre-Auction entertainment.

Incorporated into this years Auction was our first efforts to engage Alumni representing past PHS graduates, with special recognition to Class of 1969 and 1942 groups in attendance. We look forward to continuing our outreach to past students and hope other class representatives will join the fun next year.

Results of the 2010 Auction, again allowed us to maintain a $20,000 general grant budget. This year’s appeal bid garnered $9859.50 in support of the Districts long term commitment to enhancing music centered opportunities for instrumental instruction and performance. A special appeal was also entertained in support of the 2010 Outdoor School Program, adding $2625.00 to the already extraordinary fundraising effort championed by the programs sponsors committed to offering an Outdoor School Program this year.

We are indebted to all of our sponsors, donors, and guests, who without their energy, time and enthusiasm in support of the Auction, we would not be successful. Thank you! Check out photos from the event on our Facebook page!
