WHAT IS THE SENIOR AUCTION?

The Senior Auction is an annual event that raises money to make the events of graduation weekend financially accessible to all families in the Georgetown community. The funds pay for Senior Week and enable the Senior Class Committee to offer subsidized, half price tickets to families who demonstrate financial need.
