“Classic Seattle” STEM Auction

The Best and the Worst
of Seattle & the PNW

Saturday, March 23
The Hall at Fauntleroy



Why does STEM have an Auction?

The Louisa Boren STEM K-8 PTA supports basics like classroom supplies, all school assemblies, library books, gym equipment, field trips and the “extras” like Project Based Learning supplies, scholarships for before & after school clubs, technology equipment, PTA community events like multicultural night, back to school bash, and Pi day.

What IS the Auction?

The auction is our major fundraising event of the year. Our hope is that guests (adults 21+ only) feel inspired to donate at the event in support of the STEM community and we depend on the countless hours of volunteer time to pull the event off, and the community at large to donate thousands of dollars in items to the auction itself for us to auction off.

The auction is broken into two blocks: a silent auction; with silent auction tables, games and mingling, and live auction; with dinner and a live auction with classroom art and larger package / higher ticket items.

What will be different this year? SPRING FLING!

The live auction has classroom art pieces that volunteers, teachers, and students create to sell at the auction. This Spring we will have a second event at Boren called “Spring Fling” open to the entire school community (kids too!) where families have the option to see the pieces created and get replicas of the live art pieces. More details coming soon on this event once it takes shape.

Tickets – Paper tickets OR online!


We couldn’t pull this off without volunteers! Please contact Robin: auction@stemk8pta.org if you can’t make it to an auction meeting and still want to volunteer!  

Upcoming Auction Committee meetings are: 7-8 pm at Uptown Espresso – Delridge.

Our auctions are themed! This year we are going best & worst of Seattle – coffee, mermaid, the sound, JP Patches, the gum wall, a mountain, Birkenstocks with socks, grunge, hipster, dresses or jeans – costumes welcome or “come as you are”.

After Party

Circa – post Auction. Because it will be raining after all and no one will want to go home yet anyway.
