What about items from last year’s auction that haven’t yet been fulfilled?

There are several items like teacher experiences and buy-in-parties that haven’t happened yet because of pandemic restrictions. These are still happening once it is safe to do so, but the dates are yet to be determined. If you have any questions about these, contact us at

The Oktoberfest and Mystery Mission parties that we are selling tickets to right now will include the guest list from last year. So if you bought a ticket to either one of those events last year, you are already set!
