Camps & Classes Silent Auction | Davisville 2020
The Skate Night Silent Auction is our most highly anticipated fundraising event of the year. This auction exclusively offers March Break and Summer Camps, Birthday Parties and Fitness Classes. The auction items have been generously donated to us by local businesses.
What is a silent auction?
Traditionally silent auctions are in-person events and bids are placed on sheets of paper - the highest bidder at the end of the auction wins the item. However, this website allows us to facilitate bidding online to allow for more participation!
How it works:
There is a minimum bid amount for each item. Participants can bid on the item by entering their bid. At the end of the auction the highest bidder will win the item.
Worried You’ll Be Out-Bid?
Simply enter the highest amount you are willing to pay, click Proxy Bid and the system will bid for you as prompted by other bids. You will be notified by email if your maximum bid is out-bid.
The extended bidding feature will help prevent what is known as "bid sniping". If a bid is placed on an item in the final 3 minutes of the auction, the end time for that item will automatically be extended by an additional 3 minutes. This process will repeat until either:
1. There are no new bids received during the final 3 minutes.
2. The auction exceeds 30 minutes past the original end time (for our auction that will be 9:30pm on February 9).
When an auction item is extended, you will see Extended Bidding messages displayed throughout the auction, as well as a link to view all of the extended items.
Why does Davisville P.S. need to raise money?
Your Fundraising Committee and School Council work hard year-round to raise money to support and enhance your child(ren)'s educational experience.
The money raised helps pay for supplies and programs that are not funded by the TDSB. These funds are used to support things like:
• Subsidizing field trips
• Increasing and improving the technology our children have access to (e.g. iPads, projectors, computers)
• Providing more specialty classes and in-class seminars for students
• Allowing staff to purchase additional supplies for their classrooms
• Purchasing new books for the classrooms and the library
• New tools for the math program and other extra-curricular activities
• Purchasing new uniforms for our athletics teams
Thank you for supporting our fundraising initiatives and for making Davisville as successful as possible!
