2024 Trailwood PTA Auction

Preparations for Trailwood's biggest fundraiser, the annual PTA Auction, are underway! We hope you'll join us on March 23rd at 6:00 pm at the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center. We'd love for you to be part of this amazing event dedicated to supporting the students, staff, teachers and families of Trailwood Elementary!


Tickets are $50 per person and include dinner, dessert, two beverage tickets and one souvenir cup. Your purchase helps our PTA fund numerous programs at Trailwood, such as educational field trips, cultural arts assemblies, teacher classroom stipends, fun community events, and so much more! Ticket prices increase on March 18th, so order yours today!


Never been to a Trailwood Auction before and wondering what to expect? This adults-only event is a great opportunity to mingle with other parents, enjoy some great food and drinks and bid on both silent and live auction items to benefit our school. While you don't have to be present at the event to bid on silent auction items online, we would love for you to join us! Our theme this year is "We Love the 90's." You are welcome to dress up in your favorite 90's attire or just show up in whatever you would wear on a casual night out. This event is all about having a great time with your fellow Trailwood parents/guardians and supporting our amazing school!



Check back often for additional details on this awesome Trailwood event! Whether this is your first time attending the auction or you've been coming for years, we hope you'll be a part of the fun!



how can you get involved?

1. Become a volunteer!

The Trailwood PTA Auction is organized entirely by volunteers, and we would love for you to join us in planning this awesome event! Whether it be securing donations, reaching out to potential sponsors, setting up for the event or taking down at the end of the evening, we have lots of opportunities for you to help us make this the most successful auction yet! 


Please contact Cara Peterson if you are interested in helping the committee either before or during the event.


2. sponsor the 2024 trailwood auction!

Sponsorships are an awesome way for you to showcase your business to the Trailwood community while also supporting our school! We have sponsorships ranging from $300 - $1000 and would love to share more about them with you.

3. donate an auction item!

Please consider donating an item that could be added to our amazing collection of items that will be available for bidding! Do you have a vacation home that you would be willing to donate for a short stay? Tickets to an upcoming Kansas City event? A gift card to a local business? We would love to include your item to help us raise even more funds for our PTA!


Check out our wish list below, and contact Lindsay Weiss if you have additional questions.



4. host a party!

We have some awesome parties that need hosts, and we'd love for you to consider being part of these events. We will sell tickets to grade level kid parties at the auction, but we can't do this without hosts! Check out the link below to see which parties are still available. And, remember, you can always host with another family, and parties can take place anywhere - in your backyard, at a local pool, at the park, etc! If you have any questions, please contact Lori Tritsch.
