Dust off your platform shoes and get ready to step into the 70’s for a night at Studio 54. The 2020 Gala will be held on Saturday, March 14th, 5:30-10pm atThe Bridge Yard. Our goal this year is to raise $200,000 for the PTA and we won’t stop until we raise enough! There will be a live auction, parties to join, amazing cakes, drinks, dinner and dancing.

Have something to donate to the auction? Fill out this form.

Why do we have the Chabot Auction & Gala?

We are lucky to have amazing programs at Chabot like art, music, science, Kindergarten Spanish, and library – programs many other schools in Oakland don’t have. But these programs aren’t funded by public dollars – they are funded largely by the parent community. In order to keep these programs, we need to have the funds to pay for the staff and materials required to run these classes. The Annual Fund and Auction are the two biggest fundraisers that support these programs.


Who is the Chabot Auction & Gala for? 

The auction is for our entire parent and staff community with opportunities for EVERYONE to participate. Your attendance at the gala is just as important as bidding on the auction, or raising your paddle, or buying a ticket to a community party. Everybody’s participation is valued and every contribution is important. Please reach out to the auction team.


I already donated to the Annual Fund, should I still come to the Chabot Auction?

Yes! The Annual Fund only brings in about 50% of the dollars needed to sustain the programs and staff funded by the PTA. In addition, the gala is an amazing community event, where you can socialize with other families and parents that you might not otherwise know or see on a daily basis.

Please feel free to contact us at auction@chabotelementary.org with any questions.
