Joyner Foundation’s Virtual Silent Auction

We could not hold our annual Spring Party as planned this year, but the auction can go on!  Proceeds from the auction will provide funding for staffing positions for the 2020-2021 school year.  Our goal is to raise enough money through this event (as well as the others we held throughout the past year) to ensure all staff members can return next year and to maintain our school’s excellent academic programming.

Online bidding for the auction will open on June 4th and will close on June 11th.  There are so many wonderful items, and you can participate easily from home!  More information on the items as well as instructions on how to bid will be coming soon.  Stay tuned to our emails, Instagram, and Facebook for updates!
