Annual Auction

Through your generosity, the 2019 auction raised more than $334,000 to benefit our students, including a $125,000 Fund-A-Need directed to music, visual arts, new P.E. equipment, and gym bleacher replacement. This incredible annual event would not be possible without you.


This is your chance to participate in the fun of the auction, even if you cannot attend. Purchase your ticket at the front desk of any building by March 28 for your chance to win any item from the Live Auction catalog. When you buy the ticket, you will be asked to choose the item you want. Tickets are $100 each, and only 100 will be sold. The winning ticket will be drawn right before the live auction. You need not be present to win.

Your Role

Each Bear Creek family is expected to procure an item or items valued at $150 for the auction. Success depends on you! The auction office offers procurement packets, ready for your signature, which you can drop off or mail to prospective donors. Each packet contains a procurement form, generic solicitation letter, and return and outer envelopes. We can prepare custom letters at your request.

We also need volunteers to help with planning, decorations, item preparation, and day of event activities. Contact Linda Sheppard at or 425-898-1720 ext. 338 to get involved.


Pick up procurement packets at either main office or print the letter and procurement form (coming soon). Contact Linda Sheppard at or 425-898-1720 ext. 338 if you have questions or would like to discuss your idea. See the Procurement and Sponsorship pages for more ideas. The procurement deadline is February 15, 2019.


The auction is the school’s largest community-building event and our second largest fundraiser. We invite all families to attend and will send an invitation to anyone for whom you provide an address. Invite your friends, family, neighbors, and other supporters from throughout the community. Hundreds of items will be available for bidding in Silent Auctions and a spectacular Live Auction.
