Spring Auction: Cosmic Soiree!

Get ready to blast off into the cosmos!

Spring Auction at Lesley Ellis
Saturday, April 6, 6 – 10 p.m.


This year our Spring Auction is a Cosmic Soirée supporting Lesley Ellis Tuition Assistance. For many of our families, this is the most important time of the year. Our Spring Auction allows students to come to Lesley Ellis who otherwise would not be able. At a small school like ours, we have to raise that money from the ground up each year to allow all families to enjoy a student-centered anti-bias education regardless of financial resources. This year, more families than ever need our help to stay in our community. And like always, we need your help.

Join us for this night of galactic possibilities and help us make this an extraordinary cosmic experience. Mark your calendars and come be a part of the Cosmic Soirée. Your participation goes beyond an event – it’s a cosmic commitment to fostering educational excellence and community connections guaranteeing another generation of LES astronomers reaching for the stars.
