It is AUCTION time and we need your help!

The auction team relies 100% on the donations from our Cory Elementary community to make this event amazing. Our incredible families have donated so generously in the past and many of you have purchased these items. But without donated items from our community, the auction won’t be able to raise the money it needs to in order to keep our school at the top!

From very small amounts of time to vacation homes – YOU can donate something to help this year. Please don’t just rely on spending money AT the auction to help raise money for Cory – we truly need donations from you to make this event work. Think you don’t have anything to donate? You might be surprised…

This year we have set up a Sign Up Genius for the auction so that you can take a look at all the items that we are looking for and you can also volunteer if you have the time. Again, please try to help with this donation piece – it is what helps to make Cory Elementary Out of this World!

If you have any interest in taking a look, please visit by clicking HERE

If you have any questions or ideas regarding donations or volunteering, please contact us:
