2017 Bids 4 Kids
5th Annual “Bids 4 Kids” Ladies Night Out
Fundraiser featuring a silent auction, raffles, complimentary appetizers and desserts.
The Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation hosted the 5th Annual Bids 4 Kids Ladies Night Out on April 6, 2017, at Noah’s Event Venue. With over 200 guests in attendance, the community event raised close to $33,000 to help fund the Foundation’s Math and Reading Intervention programs at all 10 elementary schools in the Elkhorn Public School District.
The event featured a silent auction, raffles, complimentary appetizers and desserts. To ensure that all patrons had the best silent auction experience at this year’s event, the Foundation utilized a mobile bidding platform through Qtego Auctions. This software allowed over 350 community members to bid on their favorite silent auction items through their mobile device, whether at the event or remotely. Over 200 local businesses and community partners donated auction items, food and raffle prizes and helped sponsor the event. Each school in the district donated school experiences and sports camps for students and their families. The top raffle prize at this year’s event was a Hy-Vee Fill Your Cart shopping experience. Access Bank sponsored this raffle prize and 90 seconds of shopping happened at the local 156th & Maple Hy-Vee location on Wednesday, May 10th. This year’s winner, Lindsay Scott, received $505.00 in groceries!
The proceeds from this event are designated for the Foundation’s Before and After School Math & Reading Intervention Programs. Through these intervention programs, we are able to provide funding to over 80 teachers to help over 375 elementary students in the Elkhorn Public School District to increase their reading and math comprehension!
