All proceeds benefit the Chapman Elementary School PTA and Foundation. The auction is our largest fundraiser of the year and generates approximately 60% of our annual funds. This event helps keep Chapman the wonderful school it is for our children.
Friends of Chapman is a partnership between the Chapman Educational Foundation and the Chapman Parent Teachers Association (PTA). Both the Foundation and the PTA are entirely volunteer run.
The PTA sponsors educational programs, coordinates parent volunteers, and conducts fundraising events to benefit the school. The Foundation works to build our community partnerships and funds additional school staff to support the needs of our growing student population.
We are pleased to announce that we will be using Online Bidding once again this year and it is better than ever!
Online Bidding uses your smartphone instead of paper bid sheets for the silent auction. No apps to download. When you check-in the night of the auction, you will receive a text message (couples will each receive one, as long as we have both phone numbers) with a personalized link to open in your phone's browser. That's it! Just start bidding. No more hovering over the coveted items. Outbid your friends while getting a cocktail. We will send out links to helpful videos and detailed instructions closer to the event, or click on the 'About Online Bidding' link above.

The 1920's were known for a variety of cuisines becoming mainstream. Red Sauce Restaurants and Chop Suey Houses were opening everywhere. We are working with our caterer to have a fun-filled variety of heavy bites. More details to come.
Prohibitionists are welcome, but beware ... Bootleggers will be passing out complimentary welcome champagne. Don't be shy, our gracious sponsors are providing beer and wine, so all proceeds from Giggle Juice and Hooch sales go to Chapman!
Fabulous silent auction items, games of chance, the ever-popular Wall of Wine, and of course, the Live Auction with the Cat's Pajamas Classroom Projects. Once again, we are having a Golden Ticket Raffle (you can buy entries along with your tickets) for a chance to pick the Live Auction item of your choice.
Whether you are a Big Timer or a Tomato, a Fella or a Moll, a Daddy or a Hoofer, a Sheik or a Sheba, Our DJ will keep you entertained, in the mood and doing the Charleston during our After Party until midnight.
