Annual Spirit Auction

The St. Francis of Assisi Annual Spirit Auction is an annual spring event and the largest fundraiser of the year, making it the most significant contributor to the school’s operating budget.  The auction is sponsored by the Parents’ Association and is supported by the School Commission, parents, students, staff and our greater Burien community.

With a fresh theme every year, the auction provides numerous fun volunteer opportunities for families to collaborate and work together in support of the common goal of helping the school and our very worthy students - your children.

At every auction we feature the Fund-A-Need.  This is a specific item that the school has determined needs to be improved or replaced at the school, and is generally a large ticket item.  The funds raised during the bidding for this item go exclusively to the need identified. 

The event takes place over two evenings:

  • The Friday evening event is the Silent Auction which is held in the McClean Family Center at St. Francis School. It typically runs from 7pm – 9pm and is an informal evening of bidding and community building in a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.  Beer, wine and hors d’oeurves are served.
  • The Saturday evening Live Auction and Dinner Gala is hosted at a Seattle-area hotel and is an adults-only event. The evening starts with a non-host bar, appetizers, and time to mingle with your friends prior to the main event.  Dinner is served during the live auction with dancing afterwards.
