Did you know Super Stars Literacy has two unique fundraising games at our event? Each year, we celebrate with the Golden Ticket Raffle and the Dessert Dash!
We hope you’re excited for the excellent live auction lots we have in store at this year’s Super Stars Literacy Gala Fundraiser! This night is critical to creating opportunities for students to succeed through reading, and does so through dynamic auction bids... a Stinson Beach getaway, a night in Napa, so many opportunities!… Did we mention you could start the live auction with a $1500 voucher?! You can if you win the Golden Ticket!
During the Gala, you can enter the Golden Ticket raffle for $100. The winner will receive a $1500 voucher to use towards any live item! If you win the Gold Ticket, with a winning $3000 bid, you’ll only pay half the price. A perfect opportunity to increase competition!
Keep an eye out for the raffle ticket sales team!
What happens if you win the Golden Ticket, but come the end of the Live Auction you don’t come out ahead on the Live Lots? Don’t worry, you’re still a winner! You’ll receive a full case of wine! Not bad for a hundred bucks.
Super Stars Literacy thanks you!
At Super Stars Literacy, like our students, we love dessert.
After dinner, it’s time for our famous Dessert Dash! We have over 30 decadent and delicious desserts for our gala guests to choose from, but you’ll have to be quick!
At each table, there is a Dessert Dash bid card. Each guest will enter their bid number and the amount they want to bid. The table that bids the highest will be the first to “dash” for their choice of dessert after dinner!
Choose a “runner” to retrieve your table’s dessert as the auctioneer announces the order of the tables. You’ll get a five second head start on the table after yours!
Be fast, be safe, and bid high to have more scrumptious choices! Enjoy!
