Around The World in One Night – Sturgis 2017 Annual Auction a Huge Success!

The Sturgis 2017 Annual Auction was sold out once again with three hundred guests enjoying a fabulous evening at the beautiful Ridge Club in Sandwich! Fun and interactive bidding on fun items like the two-day overnight trip for Wicked Tuna and the customized Sturgis ping pong table drew Sturgis parents to the Bid Board, while Dr. Pete and Sturgis students shared their amazing work on the Sturgis dolphin carrier with guests. There was endless sushi, incredible food stations and gorgeous Student Advisory baskets drawing parents into the Silent Auction room.  At the much-anticipated Live Auction event, parents enjoyed listening to the heartfelt and compassionate speech by Mr. Dunigan-Atlee, Sturgis East’s Lead Math teacher, on this year’s Fund-A-Cause, which raised $7,600 for new computers and IT upgrades!

We can all agree that the cause for this annual Sturgis event was well worth attending this year, as we successfully grossed just over $64,000 – setting a NEW RECORD! Net proceeds from this year’s auction will go directly to Sturgis Charter Public School to fund faculty and departmental requests, student activities and clubs, scholarships and more!

Our sincerest thanks and appreciation to the entire Auction Planning Committee, corporate and local business sponsors, faculty and staff, our auctioneer extraordinaire, Sean Randall and his comedian special guest, and to all the parent volunteers who generously contributed their time, talents and donations to help make this fundraising event such an overwhelming success for Sturgis!

Thank you again for your dedication and support of Sturgis and more importantly, for making a difference!
