SATORI AUCTION & CARNIVAL DETAILS
When and where is the Auction & Carnival?
The big day is Saturday, April 22, 2017!
The Auction, for adults, is located at the Charter Campus – 3727 N 1st Ave, Tucson, AZ 85719, 5-8:00pm.
The Carnival, for kids, held at the Private Campus – 3801 N 1st Ave, Tucson, AZ 85719, 5-8:30pm.
What is the Auction?
The Auction is held each year at Satori and is our largest fundraising event. There are several components that make up the Auction: a Silent Auction, a Live Auction, a Raffle Drawing, a buffet dinner and more. It is an adults only event; kids can attend the Carnival. Admission tickets are on sale now.
What is the Carnival?
The Carnival is a fun filled, kids only night planned especially for our Satori kids. Our wonderful Satori Staff has many activities and even dinner planned to ensure they have a great time while you enjoy the Auction. Older children, grades 4-8, will get to have a fun mystery game experience also guided by Satori Staff. The Carnival requires a separate admission. It runs until 8:30pm to allow time for pick-up after the Auction ends.
Why are we selling raffle tickets?
Raffle ticket sales make up about one-third of our auction proceeds each year and it is essential to our fundraising goal. This year’s Grand Prize is a trip to San Diego for four including gas, lodging and either four “Go-San Diego” attraction cards or money for Comic-Con tickets (valued at $2,000). Tickets are $10 each or $90 for a booklet of 10. We ask each family to sell one booklet, but don’t stop at one booklet if you’d like to sell more! Please note, raffle tickets are not admission tickets to the Auction.
How do I get a ticket to attend the Auction?
Tickets to attend the auction are $12 pre-sale and $15 at the door. Purchase your tickets beginning in late March at the front office of either building. Your ticket will include all the auction fun of the night, dinner and a beverage from the bar. The Carnival will require a separate admission for kids.
What’s the difference between the Silent Auction and the Live Auction?
The Silent Auction is comprised of items generously donated from local Tucson businesses and Satori families. You will be assigned a bidder number which you will use throughout the night to bid on both Silent and Live Auction items. Items won can be taken home that night.
The Live Auction starts immediately after the Silent Auction closes. Here, our wonderful class projects and Teacher Experiences go up for bid. It’s a fast paced and exciting event and the raffle is drawn at the close of the evening.
Can I donate to the Silent Auction?
Absolutely! We love donations, especially ones from Satori families. Donations are showcased alongside others donated from the community. Check in the office for a donation form
What is an Auction Sponsor?
Auction sponsors will receive additional recognition for their monetary donations on our promotional and printed event materials, social media and website. Donations are used to offset the cost of our expenses and devote more profit to the kids and school!
I want to get involved, can I join the Committee?
We are always excited to have new members join our friendly team! Meetings are held on Tuesdays in the Charter Office throughout the month of April.
I don’t have a lot of time but want to help out. What can I do?
There are lots of things to do! Help your classroom teacher with collecting items for the class basket or assist with making the Live Auction Class Project. Help at the event!! We have lots of small tasks for volunteers including shifts as short as 20 minutes.
