The Golden Paddle

What is The Golden Paddle? It's Money Magic!

Basically, the winner of the Golden Paddle will have a credit of $10,000 that can be used to bid on ANY Live Auction package at the Gala! Use the credit to win the item outright, if you are lucky, OR use the credit in addition to your own bid to win something even more fabulous than you planned...funding teachers along the way!

Purchase your raffle ticket NOW for only $150

Buy 3 for $375 and SAVE $75 · Buy 6 for $750 and SAVE $150

If the winner of the Golden Paddle is outbid on all of the Live Auction packages, the winner may use the Golden Paddle to purchase ONE Premier Silent Auction item. This may ONLY be done after the Live Auction has ended. The Golden Paddle has no actual cash value, so there will be no money given for any unused portion of the $10,000 credit.

Restrictions: Once a Live Auction package has been won using the Golden Paddle, the paddle may no longer be used to bid, even if the full $10,000 credit was not used to win the package. So use your money magic wisely and for all it's worth!

The drawing will take place at the Gala on February 25, 2023. Raffle tickets will be available at the Gala prior to the start of dinner. The winner will be drawn after dinner and will receive their Golden Paddle right before the Live Auction begins! Tax Deductibility, as allowed by limit of law, is based off cost of ticket(s).
