✨ COVID-19 Safety Measures: For the comfort and safety of our community and staff, we will be restricting the capacity of our event by selling table reservations, rather than individual tickets this year. Attending virtually and bidding online will be free.

✨ About Bids For Kids: Bids For Kids is an annual fundraiser hosted by the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation. Proceeds of this event fund the Math and Reading Clubs that take place in Elkhorn’s elementary schools before and after school. Formally known as “Math and Reading Intervention,” these clubs help students gain confidence through small group tutoring and improve their overall math and reading comprehension.

In the 2020-2021 school year, nearly 200 elementary students needed additional instruction in math and reading. As students transition back to school full-time from intermittent online learning, that number is expected to rise significantly. Because of the generous support of our Bids For Kids sponsors, donors, and bidders, we’re able to continue to fund these assistance programs as the need for them increases.


Additional information regarding table reservations and to-go packages will be available soon!
