Spring Auction and Cocktail party

The PTA Spring Auction and Cocktail party is the most anticipated and fun night of the year for many parents and staff. This event is getting a refresh this year with a fun venue and many new and different offerings. Please put the date on your calendar and plan on attending. This is a great opportunity to build strong relationships with parents and staff while raising funds for programs like Read Together, Arts Integration, Cultural Arts assemblies and the Quaver Music program. Our 2018-19 fundraising goal for this program is $20,000.
  • When: March 23, 2019 at 7 pm
  • Where: Clyde’s Chevy Chase
  • What's Included: Full dinner, open bar, and tons of fun with a fabulous DJ in a great space for mingling with other Burning Tree parents (without our kids pulling us away from the conversation)
  • About The Auction: In addition to offering fun and entertaining teacher experiences, we’ve greatly expanded the silent auction catalog.  We already have an amazing line-up of restaurant gift cards, weeks of camp and other kids activities, jewelry, vacation homes, and much more.  We hope to raise a lot of money for Burning Tree!
Want to get in on the fun?  Here’s how!
  1. Come to the auction!  To purchase tickets, visit the auction website.
  2. Can’t make it?  Sponsor a teacher! Burning Tree teachers and staff attend the auction as guests of the PTA, but you can help us with those costs by sponsoring a teacher’s ticket.  Visit the sponsorships page to learn more. 
  3. Donate an item!  Do you or your family own a local business that you would like to promote to the Burning Tree community?  Do you have season tickets to the Kennedy Center or local sports teams?  Do you have any connections to unique and interesting restaurants, tours or experiences that would be interesting to other Burning Tree families?  If you have anything that you think would make for a great addition to our silent auction, please contact the event chairs at
