Alison Jordan, Monroe PTA President states “The auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year which raises the much needed funds to bring programs to our school that wouldn’t otherwise be available: Science, PE, Computers, Art, Assemblies, Field Trips, and much more!”

There will be both a silent and live auction, as well as live music by “Spencer the Gardener”, food and drinks, and special guest Marty Blum. According to Rechelle Ringer, auction committee member, “This festive event is a happy break from traditional school fundraising—it allows parents and community members to get out and have fun while raising funds for the school and bringing home some great deals! We keep our entrance fee low, relying on our community partners to help cover the costs of the event.”

Tickets for the event can be purchased at the Monroe Elementary School office at 431 Flora Vista, in Santa Barbara, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Community members interested in purchasing tickets can call the office at 805-966-7023. The cost of the ticket is $20 per person and includes a complimentary beverage, hors d’œuvres, and an evening of music and dancing.

This year’s partners include Drs. Tem and Joanne Gronquist, Rich Graphics, Santa Barbara Bank & Trust, Fastrack Bicycles, Prober Land Surveying, Kawasaki of Santa Barbara, Ibiza Hair Design, Landscapes by David, American Riviera Bank, Mike Richardson Realty and Marborg.
