The Hillbrook Auction, a fun and engaging evening of community, is an annual fundraiser that benefits Flexible Tuition at Hillbrook.
Organized by the Hillbrook School Parent Council (HSPC) and the Office of Advancement, the annual Auction is one of the school's largest community-building events and a critical fundraiser for Flexible Tuition Grants at Hillbrook.
Over 1 in 5 of our families receive Flexible Tuition Grants. This is one key way we strengthen our community by making the whole Hillbrook experience accessible to families from diverse economic backgrounds. We know that diversity strengthens the educational experience for each of our students.
This memorable evening includes live and silent auctions, a raise-your-paddle opportunity called “Stand Up For Students”, dinner, dancing, and live entertainment.
We deeply appreciate our community's commitment to coming together and contributing in many ways to the Auction. Whether you are seeking to donate, advertise, or sponsor this great event, you can find all forms here.
Thank you in advance for your valuable support of our school.
