AUCTION NEWS!

Dust off your fanciest hat, practice your bow tie skills and get your auction ticket now for the King’s 37th Annual Benefit Auction, A Knight at the Races!  Gallop to the Lynnwood Convention Center on March 13th for this wonderful community event. Get your tickets here!

And because the best parts of a meal are the “sides”, we desperately need donations of professional quality desserts for the Dessert Dash or bottles of wine for the Wine Grab!  Just fill out a procurement form or drop us an email at kingsauction@kingsschools.org.

Remember, even if you can’t attend the auction, you can still enter the raffle to win a $5000 tuition credit – with the drawing on February 28th.  What could you do with an extra $5000?

It takes a lot of jockeys, horses, and trainers to put on the Derby, so please help us with our Knight at the Races! Sign up here to help with this amazing community event – there is something for everyone!
