Call for Auction Donations!

Now is the time! Our Claxton Auction is coming up on March 29. Please help us gather non-cash donations for the auction! All money collected from the auction goes to fund PTO services, such as playground redesign, food and books for students in need, money for classroom supplies and books, mini grants, staff appreciation meals and gifts, and more.


  • Are you an artist willing to donate a piece of art?

  • Do you have a service to donate (yoga classes, will services, acupuncture, massages, photo sessions, etc.)?

  • Do you have a second home to donate for a weekend?

  • Can you provide lessons as a donation (dance, cooking, sailing, etc.)?

  • Would your place of work donate gift certificates or tickets?

  • Do you have a contact you might be able to ask for a donation?


For inquiries or donations, please contact Lisa Manning at ManningLA@yahoo.com and include the following information:

  • Name

  • Phone Number

  • Email Address

  • Name of Donation Item or Experience

  • Description of Item or Experience

  • Cash Value of Item or Experience

  • Any restrictions on the Item or Experience


If you were the contact person for a donation for last year’s auction, please reach out to that donor again this year. Contact Lisa Manning (ManningLA@yahoo.com) with the details of that donation once secured.


No donation is too small or too big, and every dollar we raise goes to Claxton. We appreciate any and all help! Thank you!
