26th Annual Children's Hospital Auction - donations needed!

Dear Parents and Guardians:

The twenty-sixth annual Avonworth Children’s Hospital Auction will be held on December 12th for high school students and on December 13th for middle school students. Through this event, the school district raises money for the Free Care Fund at Children’s Hospital. The Free Care Fund provides medical treatment to children whose families otherwise could not afford it. The fundraising campaign consists of the live auctions in the high school and middle school, the change challenge in the elementary school and an online auction. 

In the past, the district has raised over $20,000 a year for the Free Care Fund, more than any other school district in the region. In order to continue this success, donations are needed from community members and local businesses. All donations are greatly appreciated. If you or your business would like to make a donation, please contact Greg Wolfe ( or Stephanie Springer ( You can also drop off donations in either room 209 in the high school or room115 in the middle school with a label to identify the donor. 

Community members can also participate in the event by visiting our online bid page. The online auction will be posted on Additionally, we invite all community members to attend both of the live auctions. 

Thank you in advance for your support in this endeavor, and we look forward to another successful event.
