About Our Auction

This year's auction will start online and transition to the live event on November 18. The auction will be open November 11-18, closing at 7:30 p.m the evening of the event. Be sure to open up each item to read the full description!

The auction is electronic bid only - no bid sheets. We recommend downloading the auction app on your phone and creating an account for ease in bidding.

Proceeds from this year's Gala will help fund the Grow Your Own Teacher program at Eagle Ridge Academy. Having excellent, diverse, and Classical teachers for all of our Gryphons has been a challenge. Eagle Ridge Academy will begin Growing Our Own teachers right here at ERA in order to increase the diversity of Classical teachers available for our students.

In addition, each year the Gala will continue to support scholarship funds for our graduating seniors, creating opportunity for future generations of Eagle Ridge Academy scholars.

Each year at the live event we hold a Fund-a-Need to raise pledged dollars for our projects. We are incorporating these levels of donations into the auction site for your consideration and ease. While it is wonderful to receive an auction prize, financial gifts are key to building our scholarship fund and Grow Your Own Teacher program, and are fully tax-deductible.

Some auction items have a BUY NOW feature, some are only BUY NOW. Be sure to read each item carefully. Bidders may request a proxy bidder to monitor the items of your choice.

We hope you enjoy the auction!
