An Evening at the Derby

2019 STAA Fundraiser Dinner & Auction
May 18, 2019
5:30pm to midnight
Oak Creek Community Center

Mark your calendars for the biggest event of the school year – the STAA Dinner & Auction! Enjoy an adults-only, formal evening out with your fellow STAA families and community as we raise much-needed funds for our great school.  It only happens once every other year, so put on your evening best, dust off your big hat, and come on down to the races!  Our theme this year is An Evening at the Derby. 


During the evening, unwind during cocktail hour with our signature drink and appetizers, take a few fun pictures in the photo booth, enjoy a delicious meal by Saz’s, bid on awesome live auction items, and then dance the night away.  Throughout the evening, browse through the gift baskets that are part of our silent auction and generously bid to take home your favorites.   

It’s a fun night out with friends! If you don’t know many other parents yet, this is a great opportunity to meet them!

Let’s make this the biggest and best auction yet! All funds raised at the auction stay at STAA.
