Annual Social & Auction 2020


Friday, June 12, 2020, evening (time TBD)

Knights of Columbus, 5115 Little Falls Road, Arlington Virginia

The Glebe Elementary School PTA Spring Social & Auction funds more than 70% of the activities and projects by the Glebe PTA. It is our most important fundraiser.

More than 300 Glebe parents, staff, teachers, and administrators attend the Social & Auction and enjoy food, drinks, and socializing while bidding on parties, class projects, teacher experiences, arts and sporting tickets, classes, kids activities, household items, services, and more. More than 3-dozen Glebe parents volunteer to make the Social & Auction a success, and many more donate. Almost all of our teachers, staff, and administration donate their time and resources to the auction.

ADMISSION IS FREE but this is an ADULTS ONLY EVENT (reserve a sitter now). Non-alcoholic drinks, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and desserts are included for FREE to everyone at the party; we ask that you register (no purchase required) in advance to ease registration that night.

Purchase Alcoholic Drink Bands:

Until March 31: $20

April 1 to April 24: $25

At the Door: $30
