Spring Event - April 29, Lone Tree Golf Club
Our 2016-2017 spring event, A Clear Sky Night, will be held at the Lone Tree Golf Club on Saturday, April 29. This fun event focuses on our silent and live auctions, as well as giving our terrific CSE parents and staff an opportunity to mingle and enjoy a kid-free evening.
And, ticket sales are officially open! You can go to Handbid from your desktop or your smartphone to purchase tickets; we have instructions uploaded to our website if you need any assistance. We have two categories of tickets this year: General Admission and VIP; descriptions for each are available online. Since all bidding for the silent auction will be handled via your desktop or smartphone, we will not have final silent auction bidding at the event as we did last year. Ticket prices are subject to change as the event approaches so don't wait!
Buy a General Admission or a VIP ticket to the spring event in the month of January and be entered into a drawing for a free parking space to use the rest of the year! Tickets must be purchased by 11:59 p.m. January 31 to be eligible. The parking space winner will be randomly chosen by the front office and announced the first week of February.
Watch the CSE PTO website for further updates about the event!
