Grand Auction

2023 Grand Auction 
6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Alfred T. Taylor Field House

The Cape Henry Collegiate Grand Auction is held in late January and is Cape Henry's major fundraising event. Proceeds from the auction go to support our exceptional faculty and curriculum, advanced technology, arts and athletics programs, financial aid, improvements to our campus, and special needs as they arise. This is the social event of the year and features a Silent and Live auction, dinner, and entertainment.

Raise the Paddle
In recent years, generosity through Raise the Paddle at the Grand Auction has built a new playground, renovated our Cafe Dolphin, created the Kenison Digital Media Library and re-imagined and expanded the Preston Scot Creech Fitness Center. In 2021, monies from the Raise-the-Paddle initiative went to enhancing our outdoor learning and community spaces. In 2022, we raised money for two Innovation Classrooms.

Auction sponsors receive benefits including tickets to the event and sponsor recognition on the event marketing and auction website.

Businesses and individuals may donate items to the auction. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

2022 Grand Auction Sponsors

Thank You to our Auction Supporters

Special Note: Per IRS regulations, auction proceeds (with the exception of Raise the Paddle, which is a 100% donation) are recorded solely as auction revenue and are required to be counted separately from the Cape Henry Fund due to the fact that there are benefits involved, which include items won, tickets or sponsorships purchased. The amount that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limited to the excess of money paid over the fair market value of the goods or services purchased.


Bid High for a Great Cause

The Grand Auction is Cape Henry's major fundraising event and is held every year in the winter.
