When you talk to parents, students, teachers, alumni and community members about the Center School District, words that keep coming up include "family", "community", "kindness", "caring", "achievement", and "fun". Nowhere are these characteristics more apparent at one time and in one place than the annual Center Education Foundation Autos & Auctions Gala. More than just a fund raising event (though it is very successful in that regard), Autos & Auctions is a place where parents meet corporate supporters, teachers visit with alumni, and administrators mingle with community members.


Held at the Armacost Auto Museum, over 250 people share drinks, a meal, and fellowship while bidding on over 100 auction items and listening to live music provided by talented Center staff members. The evening program features the presentation of the Distinguished Alumni Award, a report from teachers who have received grants and exciting games and activities. In 2017, the event raised over $50,000 to support the Foundation teacher grants.


Next year's event will be held on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. Tickets will go on sale December 1st, 2017. Information on table sales and sponsorship opportunities is available from Rick Chambers at rick@centereducationfoundation.org.
