Spring Auction: Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who came out in a celebration of community and support for the school this past Saturday. With your help, the Lafayette Spring Auction raised more than $162,000 towards the resources and programming that enhance the Lafayette experience for all of our children. The annual auction raises critical funds for our school that help to support programs like the recess and Peace programs, teacher supplies, gardens and more.

We still have a few items without bids and some kid and parent parties still with openings including: the Spring Garden Soiree (June 8th), French Open Tennis Party (June 8th), and Kid Flag Football (June 9th; Pre-K/K Co-Ed, 1st/2nd Co-Ed, and 3th-5th Girls). Visit Lafayette2024.givesmart.com to sign up!

We have a long list of people to thank for making this possible starting with everyone who showed up to attend, bid on items, donate items, and volunteer their time to create such a wonderful evening. We couldn’t do it without you!

Special thanks go out to:

  • Johanna DuBay, Rachel Imig, and Diana Wielocha for serving as Auction Co-Chairs and planning such a lovely evening. 

  • Pam Wye and Liz Mandle for being our Auction Headline Sponsors. 

  • Anne Kingery-Schwartz, Michael Alderfer, Alona Hapey, and our other solicitation volunteers for their outreach to secure auction items.

  • Morgan Grove for serving as Teacher Experiences Coordinator and our wonderful teachers who generously donated class experiences.

  • Rachael Overcash, Beth Maglione, Emilie Williams, and Lisa Luse for serving as Parent and Kid Party Coordinators and for all of our wonderful party hosts. 

  • Jessica Jones and Racheal Coard for their graphic design work. 

  • Molly and Colin Murchie for their work on auction communications.

  • Dr. Broquard, Mr. Burwell, and the rest of the administration and staff for their help in making the auction possible.

Have ideas to make the auction even better next year? Please consider taking our quick survey.


Thank you for your support!
