The 12th Annual Fall for Burroughs Auction is this Friday! 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 and Live Auctions, Fund-A-Need Campaign, Late Night Pizza, and dancing with music by DJ Omaur Bliss. Ticket holders will receive a link via text message to preview all items and purchase Great Gathering tickets starting on Thursday. On Friday ticket holders will receive a text notification to announce bidding. 
 
The Silent Auction is packed with items at every price point and 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. While there, don't miss out on games like the perennial favorite Punch Wall, Wine Cork Pull, and Golden Ticket Raffle. This year's Golden Ticket Raffle prize is a pair of Portager Paddle Boards from Paddlenorth! You won't want to miss it!
 
Tickets are $35/person and can be purchased here.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Can't attend?  Simply purchase a single ticket for the ability to bid remotely while supporting Burroughs! Please contact Burroughs Social Worker Beth Alvarez for a complimentary ticket if ticket price is a barrier.
 
The Fall for Burroughs Auction is a parent-run fundraiser with all proceeds going directly to the Burroughs Fund.
