On March 2, 2018 the Helen Keller Elementary School PTA will host our tenth annual Silent Auction to benefit the PTA. The Silent Auction will again be teamed with our International Fun and Food Festival (IFFF). During this event, our building will open its doors to more than 500 guests from our school and the surrounding community for entertainment, games, crafts, prizes, and a tasting room- all with an international theme. The event is our school's primary winter and spring fundraiser.
If you would like to help with this event, there are lots of volunteer opportunities. Volunteer shifts are available in 30-minute intervals so you can still enjoy the evening with your family and friends!
