2018 Gala & Auction

Saturday, March 10
6:30 p.m.
Indigo Hall, downtown Spartanburg

The Parents' Club creates and implements opportunities to strengthen every aspect of school life, in and out of the classroom. The annual Gala & Auction is the club's main fundraiser and provides crucial funding for the school each year. Proceeds from last year's Gala went toward the Lower School Outdoor Learning Cove, digital cameras for the art department, faculty and staff development and the Annual Fund.

Step 1. Register
In order to bid or donate, you need to register. You do not have to purchase an event ticket to register and bid.

Step 2. Bid
Click here to sign in, and it will take you to your personal bidding page. Click on any item you like and place your bid right there. You will be notified via text if you have been outbid and will be prompted to place another bid, if you choose. You may sort items by category and 'favorite' items to create a short list of items you wish to follow. When placing a bid, you can place a single bid or set an automatic bid with a bid limit.

Step 3. Check Out
The silent auction will close 10 minutes after the live auction has concluded on Saturday March 10. Once the silent auction has closed, you will receive a congratulatory text message with specifics of the items you have won. You will be able to make a payment and collect your items at checkout. If you are not at the actual event to collect your item, one of our Parents' Club volunteers will be in contact to arrange delivery.

We want to make viewing, bidding, and winning auction items easier - not harder! If you run into issues or have any questions about the auction or the mobile bidding process, please contact Sims Bouwmeester at 864-921-4131 or email You can also wait until the event, as we will have plenty of volunteers and staff on hand to help you register and start bidding.

The Theme

"A Night Under The Stars" will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Spartanburg Day School. With the help of thousands of twinkling lights, black draping, and industrial chic furniture, Indigo Hall will be transformed into the perfect setting for a fun and festive night. Costumes will not be needed this year as the recommended attire is casual chic.
