Tuesday, October 29, 2019 10:10 AM

The 12th Annual Fall for Burroughs Auction is less than two weeks away! Please join Burroughs teachers, staff, and parents on Friday, November 8 from 7pm-midnight at the American Swedish Institute located at 2600 Park Ave S in Minneapolis. It will be an exciting evening that will include an Appetizer Buffet, Cash Bar, Silent & Live Auctions, Fund-A-Need Campaign, and dancing with music by DJ Omaur Bliss. 
 
The Silent Auction will feature a wide variety of items including a Hewing Hotel Experience, tickets to sporting events, date night packages, family activities, shopping sprees and more -- items at every price point will be available for bidding! While there, don't miss out on games like the perennial favorite Punch Wall, Wine Pull, and Golden Ticket Raffle. This year's Golden Ticket Raffle prize is a pair of Portager Paddle Boards from Paddlenorth.
 
The Fall for Burroughs Auction is a parent-run fundraiser with all proceeds going directly to the Burroughs Fund. Fall for Burroughs provides direct support to the Burroughs school budget in ways that impact all Burroughs students.
