Mason-Rice Auction

Mason-Rice Auction

On January 18-28, 2019, the PTO hosts its annual online auction via the Bidding for Good website. The auction is the second largest of the five fundraisers we do each year. It enables us to to support a variety of enrichment programming that would otherwise be unaffordable, including author visits, multicultural programs, classroom supplies, and staff development.

We rely on the generous donations and volunteer work of Mason-Rice parents to make the auction a success! Here are some ways you can help:

  • Join the Auction Committee: We are in need of volunteers to help with emailing donation request letters to potential donors, getting parent-donated items and events, soliciting donations from local businesses, data entry of donations into our online system, and communicating with winning bidders. Note that many of these important tasks can be done from home! Sign up to volunteer here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0B4AA8AE2CA5FE3-auction.
  • Donate a Parent Event: Over the years, our most popular auction items have been parent-hosted parties and experiences. Not only do these events bring in much needed funds, they also provide a great opportunity to get together with other Mason-Rice parents and have fun! Past events have included art classes, Dodge Ball, Tacos & Tequila Night, cooking classes, Moms Movie Night, and wine tasting. If you’d like to host an event, need help thinking through a potential idea, or have any questions, please email us at mrptoauction@gmail.com.
  • Donate an Item: Are you a business owner? Consider donating a service, product, or gift card! Have a vacation home? Donate a week-long stay! Have season tickets? Donate tickets for a game or show! Please contact us at mrptoauction@gmail.comwith your donation idea. Donations are tax-deductible. (Note that we can limit the bidders for your item to Mason-Rice families only.


We thank you for any help you can give to make this a successful auction year and to support all the PTO does!

Thank you to all of our 2018 auction donors!

We are so grateful to all the business that donated to this year’s auction – many of which continue to support us year after year. Please show them your appreciation by supporting them in return!
