Celebrating the Superhero in All of Us!

John Hay Virtual Auction March 2021


Calling all superheroes (that’s you, parents)!

This year has been like no other and it’s certainly brought out the inner Superhero in all of us!
So let’s celebrate our superpowers and support our school like true mythological marvels.


We’re staying safe, and away from our nemesis, COVID, by going with our online auction
through Bidding for Good again this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t add a little WOW! BAM! POW! to the night.
We’re working on a meal service option for those heroes that paid for tickets last year,
with an option for our new superheroes that will be joining the event for the first time this year.
More info to come soon! Keep a bionic eye on this page for upcoming details.


Our March Auction is John Hay’s largest fundraiser of the year.
The funds we raise support programs that simply could not exist without the heroic support of our community.
These programs benefit our little superheroes every day, including our Math Interventionist, Reading and Early Literacy Interventionist, Student Success Coach, and so much more. Some might say... the SUPERHEROES of learning!

We realize this epic year has been like no other, with unique circumstances and challenges. Let’s obliterate the obstacles and continue to bring our students the educational and emotional support they need to thrive and grow in this cosmos.


Use your X-ray vision for
a sneak peek
at what you can look forward to:

Our online auction starts with a BANG! with Greater Giving on March 9, 2021.

Saturday, March 13, 2021, suit up in your superhero cape (you can skip the mask since you're safe at home):
Tune in for a short but special presentation via YouTube in the evening.

Enjoy a special catered meal for you and your kids from John Hay family-owned, Ripe Catering.
(More details to come for those that already purchased tickets to last year’s event
and for new participants that would like to enjoy this option.)

Bid on fine wines, learn about special bidding items, and Raise the Paddle to support John Hay.

Auction wraps up on March 14, 2021.



How to be a champion

Don your cape, and definitely your mask, and tap into your greatest super strengths by supporting our school and local community in one fell swoop: Buy a gift card from one of our local businesses and donate it to the auction.

Maybe you have a hidden lair (aka vacation home), an invisible plane (or airline miles on one),
a super sonic boat that can hold a few Superheroes, or hotel points from that last Hyatt that you leapt over in a single bound? There are so many ways to WOW the auction and save the day. Get inspired!

Leap to new heights as a platinum, gold, silver, or bronze level business sponsor and help us underwrite our costs.
Every dollar we save goes back to helping our students.

Have some super secret gift cards collecting dust? Donate them to the auction to make a difference.

Lasso a bottle of wine (or two) from McCarthy & Scheiring to be sold in one of our amazing wine packages.

Swoop on to John Hay’s Amazon Smile Wish List (coming soon!) to purchase items to be compiled into exciting auction baskets.

Can’t conjure your mythic powers and think of the perfect item to donate? Don’t fret! Let us conquer that task for you!
We will gratefully accept a monetary contribution which empowers the superhero auction team to purchase a marvelous item that will "sell" for much more than face value. You can make your donation here!


We want to acknowledge the struggles and challenges of the last nine months and thank you deeply for your willingness to engage your superpowers and save the day. YOU are an essential part of what makes John Hay such a wonderful community and we are so grateful for your support. Thank you in advance for making a contribution to John Hay and the future of our students. Together we can conquer the challenge, overcome any obstacle, and …


Celebrate the Superhero In All of Us!
