Art & Basket Auction

We are so excited for Reagan Academy’s Art & Basket Auction and we hope you are too! If you’ve never experienced the Art & Basket Auction you might be wondering what to expect.

The Art & Basket Auction is a fundraiser for our In-School Teacher Grants to help get new equipment and supplies in our classrooms. Our teachers work so hard to provide the best for our children and we can do our part to support them in their endeavors.

In order for the Art & Basket Auction to be a success, we ask families to donate a basket (or item) to be auctioned off. You can bring in your basket to the front desk and we ask that you fill out a form that includes your name, a short description of the items in your basket and the retail value of your basket.

There is another way for families to get involved and donate. Each year we have Mega Baskets that will be raffled off the night of the Auction. A few grades will share in different themes for each Mega Basket. The themes change each year so keep an eye out for details! To donate to your student(s) Mega Basket, think of anything (and we mean anything) that will work with the theme…it could be a toy, gift card, decoration, equipment, etc! ***There is also a form for Mega Basket donation***

The night of the Auction we invite you to come and enjoy the night! Baskets will be on display and ready to be auctioned off. These are part of our silent auction and can be bid on until time runs out. Each table will have a different ‘end’ time and we will announce them throughout the night. The forms will be collected and then winners names will be displayed. You will be able to pay for and pick up your winning items that night.

Mega Baskets are raffled off...and they are amazing prizes! You have a chance to win even if you only put in 1 ticket…although you have a better chance if you put in more! Raffle tickets will be sold at the front office.  (Keep your eyes peeled for more information)

We will also have food available to purchase, some are pre-sale items, as well as drinks and dessert.

The Art portion of the night is quite unique and entertaining to witness. Multiple artist will participate in a “quick draw” art project of their own where they will create an art piece within a given amount of time. You can watch them create a one-of-a-kind piece of art and participate in a live auction towards the end of the evening. Other artists will have art work on display and for sale as well.

To help keep the kiddos entertained, we will have a movie, a kids craft and a kids store with fun little knickknacks that they can purchase with their tickets. Please be sure to keep an eye on your children as the night progresses.

At the very end of the night we will draw tickets for the Mega Baskets – so be sure to put your name and phone number on the backs of each of your tickets that you plan on entering in for a Mega Basket.

We hope this gives you a better idea on what to expect from our Annual Art & Basket Auction! As always, feel free to ask any questions by emailing us at or on our Facebook page!
