2019 auction banner no bg.png






Thank you to our fabulous Fernbank community! You raised $74,827

to support programs that our students otherwise wouldn't have.


38% of this revenue ($28,488) was raised thanks to our fantastic teachers and staff offering to donate their time after school to give your children amazing experiences! Thank you teachers and staff!


$2,787 was collected in the classrooms thanks to our wonderful Fernbank families! It was used to purchase (or enhance) our fun getaway packages. The money you contributed was converted to $4,600 worth of revenue, thanks to the generous bidders who purchased the getaways. Outstanding!  


We sold 229 tickets for the auction event in Downtown Decatur. We had 340 bidders - bidding from home and at the event. Thank you to all who attended and bid! And...several of you generously donated dollars - almost $1,000!

Thank you Fernbank!!


Next year will be here before you know it, and we need help to plan and pull off Auction 2018! Please email Sara Blanchard if you are interested in participating! And if you have pictures, we'd love to add them to our gallery - upload them here!
