Appetizers & Auction, April 7, 2018

Purchase online here.

Alice Birney’s largest fundraising event is on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Beatnik Studios, in the heart of downtown Sacramento’s art community.

This year, heavy appetizers and desserts catered by Mike and Lisa Thiemann of Mother and Empress Taverns will tempt event goers, while live and silent auctions offer everything from wine and gift baskets to once-in-a-lifetime vacations. Tickets are $55 per person, or $100 per couple. Tickets include general admission, 1 drink ticket per admission, heavy appetizers and desserts, and a deluxe swag bag.

Golden Tickets Now Available!
Imagine being able to choose any auction item from Earth & Vine that you desire, for only $100! If you win the Golden Ticket drawing, that’s exactly what you get to do! Tickets are $100 and enter you to win your dream auction item. These are amazing – last year’s winner chose a trip to Barcelona! Click here to see this year’s list of auction items.

You can purchase a Golden Ticket after school this week through April 6, at the West Gate or in front of the Office. The winners will be chosen on April 7, the night of the event. You don’t have to be present to win.

About Alice Birney Waldorf eK-8 School
We are a community of families and teachers with a powerful vision: we believe in developing children’s individual talents, nurturing their creativity, and fostering their knowledge and imagination.

These core values are integrated daily into our school’s broad-based Waldorf curriculum, and include drawing, painting, movement, music, gardening, cooking, woodworking, and handwork.

This approach, proven for nearly 100 years worldwide, and 21 years in our unique public school in Sacramento, helps to develop creative, well-rounded youth with a lifelong passion for learning.

Tax dollars cover much of our public school’s operating costs. However, our unique specialty classes are supported almost entirely by the Alice Birney Guild, our school’s parent-teacher association and a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
