Gift Gathering Party Info-See Below!
Evening for Excellence is Roger Bacon’s dinner auction which takes place each spring. It is the school’s largest fundraising event and the most important social event of the year. The auction is designed to offer our supporters a fun and memorable evening with good food and friends while we build relationships with our parents and constituents. The evening includes a silent auction, Basket Boutique, EFE Surprise, Grand Raffle, Split-the-Pot and additional special booths set up for the themed event. The night’s highlight is the oral auction where guests bid on items valued at $300 to over $1000. The proceeds from this premier event benefit our students with financial aid, scholarships and support for our technology program.
What is a Gift Gathering Party?
A Gift Gathering Party is a party hosted by Roger Bacon parents and alumni. The party may be evening cocktails, an afternoon bar-b-q or a Sunday brunch. Guests are asked to bring a gift to be included at Evening for Excellence, Roger Bacon’s premier fundraising event.
