Annual Dinner Auction
Regent Preparatory School's annual dinner auction (Starry Night) is the only school-wide fundraising event of the year. The funds from this event enhance the programs and classical Christian educational experience at Regent.
While this year has been unique in many ways, one thing that remains consistent is Regent's need to raise financial support to supplement what our families pay in tuition. While 95% of Regent's annual operating budget of $4.64 million dollars is covered by tuition, that final 5% must still be raised through various means including our only school-wide fundraising event of the year — the Starry Night Dinner Auction.
Thank you to our school families (both past and present) and our community who generously help us toward our monetary goal for this event through donating auction packages, sponsoring the event, attending and purchasing auction items at the event, and much more.
SAVE THE DATE
This year's dinner auction will be Saturday, February 6, 2021! Guests will gather in hosted homes for dinner and the auction will be a virtual event filled with exclusive premier and live auction packages, sign-up parties, games, and more. There is also an option to participate from your own home (without dinner provided) for those who prefer not to be in one of the small group gatherings.
Purchase your sponsorship or event admission online now through January 15 using the button below.
In addition to the virtual event on February 6, we will be opening up online bidding on many of our silent auction packages through a link that will be published here in late January. This online auction will be open from Thursday, January 28 to Thursday, February 4 (closing time TBD). The Online Auction will launch with a casual Auction Preview in the auditorium from 2-3 p.m. then 5-8:30 p.m. (subject to weather conditions). Since bidding will be open, you can also register to bid while you are here viewing the physical packages.
If you are interested in partnering with Regent as a sponsor for this year's Dinner Auction. We offer five sponsorship levels available from $1,000 to $10,000, please see the details on the Sponsor Form. The completed forms are due Friday, January 8.
Please note, the Cornerstone sponsorship comes with the distinction of being an auction cosponsor. This distinction will be recognized on our website and every piece of printed material. The deadline for notification is Tuesday, December 8 for inclusion as a cosponsor on the invitation.
Thank you to all the Regent families and local businesses who participated in our Gift Gathering. We are once again overwhelmed by the generosity of our community. We look forward to sharing the exciting lineup of auction packages for this year's event. Look for more on that after we begin the new calendar year.
