The Pickerington Education Foundation’s (PEF) silent auction of themed, decorated trees (with accompanying upscale baskets) opens online tonight at 5pm! Click this Charity Auctions Today link to view the trees and begin bidding.

Each PLSD building typically works with their PTO and/or staff to decorate and enter a themed tree into this unique auction. This is the first year that PEF has hosted an online silent auction associated with and ahead of their Charity Auction event. Tree bidding will conclude at the end of the Charity Auction on October 23.

You may also purchase tickets now to the Charity Auction, which includes dinner, soft drinks, entertainment, silent auction and a Reverse Raffle, on the Pickerington Education Foundation webpage. The fun-filled event is slated for Saturday, Oct. 23, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., at the Wigwam Event Center, 10190 Blacklick-Eastern Rd. NW, Pickerington, OH, 43147. Dinner will be catered by Berwick Manor. Tickets are just $50 per person (plus PayPal fee). You may also opt to buy a table of 8 for you and your friends for just $400. All tickets are will call.

Whether you are able to attend the event or not, there’s another exciting way to participate and help raise money for PEF! On the ticket website, you may also purchase a Reverse Raffle Ticket for an additional $50. Got a lucky number? Pick it for a chance to win! Using the ‘seat finder’ application, pick a number between A1 through A300 for your Reverse Raffle Entry number. The winner need not be present for the raffle.

Proceeds from this event provide grants to Pickerington teachers and buildings for a variety of classroom projects. PEF awards over $20,000 each year that goes directly back to support our schools. Founded in 2004, PEF is a permanent public charity as a fund within the Fairfield County Foundation. As a public charity, all contributions to the Foundation will receive the maximum tax deduction allowed by law.

We thank you for your support and hope to see you at the PEF Charity Auction — a truly enjoyable and fun way to support our schools!
