Carlisle to host annual charity auction

Carlisle School is hosting its 51st annual charity auction on February 22-27 in an online event that will culminate with a LIVE virtual event on Saturday, February 27. 

The Pre-Show begins at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 22, followed by the kickoff of the Live Auction at 7 p.m. 

The auction is one of the school’s most historic traditions and its biggest fundraiser event. 

“Since we cannot gather in person this year, we are keeping the tradition alive through a virtual, online celebration! We have vacation packages, jewelry, home decor, student keepsakes, and much more,” school officials said. 

More than 200 items are available, and all proceeds support the programs at Carlisle School, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 

Everyone is invited to participate.
