Hearst Auction 2020



Hearst's Annual Auction Event

Due to the closures of DCPS and American University, the Annual Auction Event has been postponed. Please stay tuned for updates on the new date for the auction.

Auction Details

Get ready for a night of cocktails, heavy appetizers, music, and mingling with fellow Hearst parents and staff – all to support Hearst! In addition to beer and wine, we’ll have a Bourbon tasting available as well. There will be tables of silent auction items, ranging from sporting events, to restaurants, summer camps, and the always-popular teacher treats! Stay for the live auction and see how fierce the competition gets this year!

The ticket price includes the cost of a silent and live auction with tons of great items, food and drink, and the venue. You do not have to bid on items if you don't want to! Just come and have fun! And for you basketball fans, don’t worry. We’ll have the Elite Eight game on, so don’t even try that excuse!

Tickets are $55 per person and increase to $70 per person 2 weeks before the auction, so we encourage you to purchase your tickets now!

How can you help?

Secure auction items!

Every parent can help by soliciting an auction item. Do you have a business that would donate an item? Or do you frequent a restaurant? Did you just plan your child’s birthday party at a local activity center? All would be great items to include in the Hearst Auction. We have a standard letter and form that we can provide. Contact Kim ([email protected]) for information.
