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, cocktails and entertainment.
Our theme for this year is "A Royal Affair". Come dressed in your best vintage elegant attire!
Tickets for the auction go on sale November 1. For the month of November, tickets are offered at an "early-bird" price of $50 per person. December 1 ticket prices increase to $75 per person. Your ticket includes dinner, cocktails, and access to bid on silent and live auction items. Space is limited for this event so be sure to reserve your ticket early!

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 2022, we raised money for two Innovation Classrooms in the Center for Innovation and Performing Arts. We will announce this year's Raise the Paddle initiative a few weeks before the auction.

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.
