Please join us for our 43rd Annual Auction Saturday, March 25, 2023 6:00-11:30pm Michael J. Homer Science & Student Life Center SHS Practice Pavilion
For more than 40 years, we have gathered together to celebrate our community at the annual All-School Auction. This event is so much more than just a fundraiser; it is an event that encourages community spirit, connection, and pride.
SHS is dedicated to building community. Financial assistance is available to attend this event. Please contact OMCS at 650.454.8312 by March 14, 2023 for support.
A long-standing SHS community tradition, the annual auction is our largest community celebration and a critical fundraising event that secures financial support for exceptional faculty and programming, tuition assistance, and other vital resources that benefit all our students.
100% of the net proceeds from the auction support the education we are so proud to offer our students. The auction is a great community-building event. There are many volunteer opportunities and parents have fun working together to achieve a common goal.
It's simple. Please fill out the Auction Items Donation Form. Next, bring in your item or arrange with the auction committee to have it picked up or delivered closer to the auction. Be sure to provide brochures or pictures for the display of your item if available!
Our item donation deadline is Friday, February 10!
