Support a great neighborhood school and get some great prizes at the same time.
We are doing something entirely different for our auction this year! Our theme is “A Taste of the Neighborhood,” and our auction items will highlight all of the great restaurants and food-related businesses DC has to offer with an emphasis on the businesses within our neighborhood: U Street, Logan Circle, and Shaw! Get ready to bid on some great auction items. And a special thanks to our sponsoring businesses!
Also new this year is our drawing! Donate to Garrison and you will automatically be entered into our drawing. You may win 4 Hopper Passes to Walt Disney World or 5-days of bike camp with Capital Cycle Camp! Results will be announced at our After-auction Event.
By participating in our auction, you are helping a great neighborhood school. Our fundraisers help to pay for field trips, cultural events, and other out-of-school activities like our Saturday Interactive Art Workshops. And because this auction is completely on-line, you can be charitable from the comfort of your own home.
Let’s start bidding!
Bidding opens at 8:00AM on Friday, April 1, 2016 and ends 8:00PM on Monday April 10, 2016.
Our After-auction Event is on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 (5:30-7:30PM) at Gallagher & Graham Fine Spirits (1939 12th Street NW).

Top 5 Reasons to Bid & Donate:
1. All proceeds go directly to the students: Money raised will help fund enhanced programming and school trips like the one we have planned for Port Discovery Children’s Museum in Baltimore.
2. Your support helps local businesses: We have been overwhelmed by the donations provided by our generous local sponsors. Let’s return the love and go to their establishments.
3. A strong neighborhood school makes a strong community: Neighborhood schools are the fabric of our community. Strengthen our neighborhood schools with enhanced programming, events, and extra-curricular activities, and a healthy, vibrant local community will surely follow.
4. Give yourself a treat: We have some really nice auction items. Why not splurge on yourself or someone you love and help Garrison at the same time?
