Travel, Dine, Sip & Cheer:
Great Deals for You,
Vital Support For Ravenswood School

We’ll See You at Spring Forward March 16;

Online Auction Runs March 17- April 6

Root for an old favorite taking the field or try an art class for the first time. You’ll have the chance to browse and bid on event tickets, restaurants, spa days, and vacation getaways in a secure and simple silent-bidding format directly from the Ravenswood School website. That’s right–we’re launching Ravenswood’s first-ever online accompaniment to our Spring Forward Celebration and Auction. That means there’s more than one way to participate.
The big event takes place at DANK Haus in Lincoln Square (4740 N. Western) this Saturday, March 16, from 6:30 to 11 p.m. That night you won’t want to miss our “Black & White for Green” celebration featuring live music, gourmet food, and just for fun–adult snow cones and a retro photo booth. You’ll hear an important message from school leadership and have the opportunity to bid on premium sporting events and services, one-of-a-kind student art, teacher-student experiences, and other select auction items.
The fun and fundraising does not end there. Online bidding on a hundred-plus great items begins in the early hours of March 17 and runs through April 6, the week after students return from Spring Break. Simply visit the school website and click on the auction button. Importantly, share that link with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
With this new, expanded format, we’re bringing you convenience (bid any hour of the day; use your tablet; maybe ring up far-away friends and go for the big vacation home). And you’re bringing the hard-working students of Ravenswood Elementary much-needed funds to keep our fine arts-focused, diverse public school growing and thriving!
Important information:
  • Beginning March 17, hit the auction button from the school site. Once registered and bidding, you’ll receive emailed updates on status.
  • An email will be sent to the winning bidder with a Paypal link for payment. Paypal transactions are safe and secure. Please make payment at your earliest convenience. A Paypal account is not required for payment; any major credit card can be used. Have questions about payments? Email them to us here.
  • The online auction closes late on April 5 or very early on April 6 depending on the item. Check each auction item for details.
  • In general, Friends of Ravenswood School will not ship or deliver items. School pick-up days and times will be announced. If you cannot make pick-up, with permission, we will release items to a designated person. Long-distance winners may make arrangements with their Ravenswood connection for item delivery. Please email us with any questions about pick-up.
