Get Ready for some Amazing Items at the Silent Auction!

How does a beach trip over February or Fall break sound? Or a week in the mountains? Looking for concert seats? Bid on tickets for PINK or Why Don’t We. Are you more of a sports fan – how about tickets or memorabilia from Atlanta United, the Braves, the Hawks or the Falcons? You’ll find these amazing items along with more than 40 gift baskets ranging from a spa day to treats for your pet. We’ll be posting a complete list of auction items on the Chorus web site soon. And check back – because there might just be another set of concert seats coming!

We Need Food!

Can you deliver some refreshments for the Show? Our event would not be complete without intermission refreshments and, of course, snacks for the students in the show. Take a look at this Sign-Up Genius and let us know what you can deliver the afternoon of the show to help us out. Drop your items with a Fashion Show lettering points form and a receipt, and your student will receive points.

  •  Lettering points will be given for different levels of participation in the show.
  • Auditions for those who want to perform will be held after school on Wednesday, January 9.
  • Students may also earn lettering points by donating to the Silent Auction.
