Silent Auction Information


The cancelation of tonight’s Fine Arts Night, I’m sure is disappointing for kids and our staff who have worked so hard preparing. This is always an amazing event showcasing our students’ talents in the areas of music and art!


It’s also disappointing for our PTO, who have spent countless hours securing donations and preparing for their largest fundraiser.  This money is essential to CRE and provides additional financial assistance, especially in the wake of significant budget cuts.




The PTO has decided to move forward with the Silent Auction and extend the online bidding until 5 PM on Sunday evening. There are incredible auction items to bid on.


A Silent Auction is only as good as the participants, so we need you.  Historically, this has raised $15,000 for our PTO.  Luckily, this year we utilized an online platform so we can do it remotely.  The risk of not having an event is less participants and less money for the school.


Amazingly we have 294 Auction Items for sale! From collaborative art to gift cards and everything in between.  Too many to list.  Below are some highlights.


Below is a direct link to the CRE PTO Silent Auction. Please share this with friends, families, and relatives who want to support our CRE PTO. Share it on social media and within your other social networks.  Bid high, bid often! 🙂  There are great deals to be had and it all goes to an amazing cause!
