If you’ve never been to an in-person FOSB auction:

Here’s what you need to know: Salmon Bay’s annual spring auction is not some fancy charity gala. It’s always a little wacky and unexpected — and that’s the way we like it. Although it’s one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, it’s unlike any you’ve attended before. Learn more in our auction FAQ.

Attending the FOSB auction is a fantastic way to connect with other Salmon Bay parents, strengthen our sense of community, support our school, and enjoy a great night out!

We invite you to register for this year’s auction (text DISCO to 71760) and participate however you prefer: online, in-person, or both (see details below).

A credit card is required to register. You will only be charged if you choose to purchase or donate.

If you’ve been to a past in-person FOSB auction:

We hope to welcome you back this year! You might be wondering how this event will be different from past auctions. For 2023, we’re keeping some of the most popular parts of our pre-COVID auctions, as well as some features from our 2021 and 2022 virtual auctions. Plus, we’re making some updates to create a fun, new auction experience that will still feel familiar. 

  • Keeping: mobile bidding on the go; auction sign-up party experiences to purchase at all different price points and group sizes; a split-the-pot raffle; a wacky, in-person event for our adult community!
  • Removing: potluck meal, sit-down tables
  • Adding: appetizers instead of dinner, a beautiful new venue (Metropolist in Seattle), and YOU!!

Online experience vs in-person event:

For this year’s first-ever hybrid FOSB auction, you can choose to participate online, in-person, or both.
