Oregon Episcopal School raises $520,000

 In Auction Recaps, Great Ideas, In the Press

And the Oscar goes to….

Oregon Episcopal Schools raising a near-record breaking $520,000 in March 2016.

How did they do it?  They had a cast that couldn’t be beat. Co-chairs that are a force of an auction team coupled them with a creative committee and a theme that their attendees could not resist.

“Aardy goes to Hollywood” was a night to remember!

One of my favorite fun infusions from this event was the Student Paparazzi.  It was so fun to turn around from the check-in table to walk the red carpet with all of the students snapping multiple photos of you as you made your way to the silent auction.  It was a true Hollywood experience.

Additional Benefits for the Student Paparazzi

  1. It put the students in front of the guests.
  2. Students received in-class credit for their participation.
  3. The students made their photos available to the guests.  More photos to showcase the great night.

Adding a little fun to the night kept the audience engaged and also showcased the school.  It’s clear the Oscar goes to Oregon Episcopal School!
