Post Auction News!  posted as of March 3rd, 2020

Wow!  We did it!  The auction was a fantastic event:  we made or fundraising goals thanks to the attendees, volunteers and many donors.  We are still behind a bit in fundraising for the year though, so please check out our online auction site for items/experiences that are still available.  

Thank you to the MANY volunteers who helped with bartending, ticket selling, data entry, silent auction, desert dash, setup, item pickup and so much more!

We had more item donors than EVER before!  This included both individuals who donated items as well as busineses.  We thanked all of these donors at our auction, but we want to give a special should out to all our nearly 200 business sponsors and ask that you thank them yourself by frequenting these amazing businesses.  See list above.

The Auction Countdown!  posted as of February 4th, 2020

Less than a month to go and we are SOLD OUT of tickets! But you can still join in on the fun. Click the red button below to learn about volunteer opportunities before, during or after the auction. We need 30+ volunteers and we have roles big and small.   Depending on your role, some volunteers can still bid on items at the event.  Join us!

Or, consider donating to our staff ticket fund. Staff attend FREE thanks to your donations.     

Are you attending but still a little unsure what you’ve gotten yourself into? Check out our Auction 101  page.   


We need EVERYONE to get involved! – posted as of January 5th, 2020

With less than 2 months to the auction, we need everyone to get involved!

  • Volunteer for Setup or Party Help: Details to come in early February. For now, what we really need help with is finding donated auction items.  See below!
  • Donate a Dessert:  We need nice homemade desserts or store bought fancy desserts to help raise funds at the Dessert Dash portion of our auction evening. You don’t have to attend the auction to donate. Sign up here.
  • Donate an Item:  See the “Auction Items Needed” post below for more details, but we still need classic auction items!  Ask your neighbors, relatives, work associates and those businesses you frequent in West Seattle and beyond. LINK to Item Donation Form   
  • Donate Your TIME:  NEW THIS YEAR!  We’ve heard feedback that people want to contribute their time and others want to buy services! LINK to Item Donation Form    Here are ideas:
    • Babysitting: Know a teen who babysits? Get them to donate a night of sitting. It may count as service hours.
    • Yard Services: Donate 3-4 hours of yard cleanup with 4 people. Might be a fun family activity.
    • Teach Cooking: Teach another family to cook a traditional meal from your family
    • Knitting: Offer to knit a custom blanket in the bidders color of choice
    • Dinner Party:  Host a dinner party at your home for 3-4 couples or 1-2 families. OR donate your home to host for someone who wants to cook but doesn’t have room to host.
    • Car Washing: Offer to wash and vacuum 2 cars
    • Dinner Delivery: offer to deliver 3 pre-made dinners…or desserts…or something else.
    • Other Professional Services: Are you (or a willing friend of yours) able to donate other professional services – tax services, decorating, landscape design, organization, family photography
    • What is YOUR idea?  What could you do that someone might buy to raise money for the school?
Questions?  Need details?  We are here to help.

Never been to an auction before?  Read on!

We realize that there are lots of families new to Genesee Hill or who have just never gone to the auction. It is a fun, adult night, but it can be confusing if you have never been to an auction.  Below are 2 documents that were created for last year’s Disco themed auction (March 2019).  While some of the details may change, these links may help you understand a little more about what this is all about.  

Please also know that when we do seating arrangements, we pair up Kindergarten and First grade families with other newbees as well as experienced auction attendees.  You won’t be alone!

But the best way to learn about the auction (or just get involved in the school in general):  JOIN THE TEAM!  We have volunteer roles large and small both at the auction and in the months ahead.  You can do auction planning work from your home during the day or evening.  You can join a group, or work on your own. 

C’mon!  We promise you will have fun:  please contact Julie or Christine at
