Spring Auction

Chabot’s annual Spring Auction is a school-wide effort that is Chabot PTA’s biggest and most important spring fundraiser. Our goal this year is to raise more than $160,000 to continue supporting our dynamic enrichment programs — music, science, art, media, library, gardening, P.E. and Spanish — and vital services no longer supported by OUSD.

The Online Auction will be held February 24th – March 2nd and is open to Chabot families, friends, and neighbors. Through the generous donations of the community, our Online Auction features items including food and grocery gift cards, retail and restaurant gift certificates, services, parties, summer camps, activities for kids, lessons & tutoring, and more! Items range in price, allowing everyone to participate at a level that is comfortable.

The Spring Gala will be held Saturday, March 5th at the Greek Ascension Community Center in Oakland from 5:30-10:30pm. Guests will have plenty of time for mingling during cocktails and the Silent Auction, followed by a seated dinner during the Live Auction. And we’ll close the night by announcing the Raffle winners for the PUBLIC Bike, Instant Wine Cellar, and Beer Cave. Raffle tickets are still available and you need not be present to win!

Gala Tickets Now Available

Tickets are now available for Chabot’s Spring Gala. Each ticket includes free on-site parking, a welcome glass of champagne, passed hors d’oeurves, and a three-course seated meal including wine and dessert. Dinner entree options are a Mixed Grill Piccata (grilled chicken and salmon over rice pilaf with roasted vegetables), or the vegetarian Pasta Primavera. Soft drinks during the event are complementary, and drink tickets for wine, beer and cocktails will be available for purchase.

Individual Tickets
Individual Tickets are available for purchase by selecting the “Buy Tickets” option. Dinner tables seat ten guests, and will be pre-assigned to ensure space for everyone. If you would like to gather your own group of ten and purchase an entire table, please use the option below to sponsor a table.

Sponsor a Table of 10
If you would like to gather your own group of ten and purchase an entire table, please select the “Buy Sponsorships” option and be prepared to provide the names of the members of your party and their meal preferences.

Sponsor a Faculty Ticket
We are inviting Chabot faculty and staff as our guests, so please consider buying an extra ticket or two to cover their costs!

Please note that tickets MUST be purchased by Saturday, February 27th and may only be purchased at the Auction website. The caterers need an accurate headcount and meal selections in advance, so there will be no tickets available for purchase at the door.
