Grab your boots, chaps, and cowboy hats join us at the Fair Barn in Pinehurst at 6 pm on Saturday, April 1st, 2017. This year’s theme is “Boots and Bling”. There’s eatin’, drinkin’, bull-riding (mechanical that is), 50/50 Cash Raffle, silent auction, and a real live auction to be had!
The Annual Auction continues to be successful thanks to the support of individuals, families and businesses in the EDS and local communities. The funds raised from this annual event help us keep tuition low, so that more families can afford to give their children a quality education in a nurturing Christian environment. Last year we raised over $70,000 for EDS and the children we serve.
Donations are solicited from parents, friends of EDS, as well as local businesses. Our auction thrives on donations from multiple sources, at various levels. A printed Business Directory will be given to all current families (and new families in the fall) containing a business card sized ad from every business that donates to the EDS Auction. In return, we ask EDS families to please support those local businesses that have contributed to our children’s education.
Advantages of donating to the EDS Auction:
– A tax benefit by giving to a local Christian school
– Recognition and marketing in the online Auction Catalog
– A 2”x 3”ad in the Business Directory, a new printed directory given to all EDS families
– Recognition from display of item and signage on Auction night
– Acknowledgement in the EDS Annual Report, mailed to 800 constituents
– Display of business cards (please supply up to 100 business cards)
– Satisfaction of helping our young students and future leaders

Please consider using your business’s marketing and advertising funds to support Episcopal Day School.
