Glenridge Nursery Benefit Auction
Information for Donors
About Glenridge Cooperative Nursery School
Glenridge Cooperative Nursery School is a non-profit preschool dedicated to providing children with a unique child-centered learning program in one of the few natural environments left in San Francisco.
Glenridge is nestled inside Glen Canyon Park, about a 15 minute hike in. Three and four year olds walk in every day, rain or shine, because it is a wonderful place to be.
Glenridge has been offering its nature based programs to city kids since 1970. Our afternoon program's teacher was once a student in our morning program!
At the end of a Glenridge day, kids are dirty, hungry and tired. Self-directed play and a connection to nature was shown to build empathy, confidence and creativity.
Our Annual Fundraising Auction
One night to raise 60% of our operational cost.
The auction’s success is vital to the school's continued ability to provide a high quality, low-cost, preschool education for the children of the Bay Area. This year’s auction promises to be a spectacular event as Glenridge celebrates its 44th anniversary. Always a popular event, we expect over 400 friends, family and alumni to attend the auction this year.
Saturday, Nov. 5th, 6pm
207 Skyline Blvd
San Francisco, CA
The auction features spectacular deals on vacations and getaways, a wine cellar, fine dining, gift certificates, art, jewelry and hand-made items donated by local artists and businesses.
Our chefs prepare gourmet appetizers for the event while local restaurants donate their flagship starters for the big night.
The Glenridge auction has built a reputation as a good party. In fact, it was sold out last year! The drinks are bottomless, the music is playing and everyone has a great time.
