    • We will continue to add items as we receive them, so please check back often.
    • It’s not too late to purchase a ticket to attend Cardinal Auction Night in-person the evening of Friday, May 13th. While we hope you can join us for drinks, food, and fun conversation, attendance is not necessary to bid on and win items.
    • Bidding will remain open until Friday, May 13th at 9:00 pm (EDT).
    • You can also make a monetary donation through the 32Auctions website (look for the green 'Donate' button near the top-right corner). Any amount helps; no contribution is too small.

  • Auction proceeds will be used to improve the educational experience of all students. Please share with friends and family - near and far - to help us meet and exceed our goal of raising $15,000 for J.O. Wilson. As an incentive for all families: if we meet our fundraising goal, students get to have a schoolwide pajama/dress down (uniform-free) day!

  • If you have questions about bidding, or anything else auction-related (including how to help), please email the PTA. Thanks for your support!
