Emerald Mountain School hosts annual fundraising auction

Steamboat Pilot & Today

What: Emerald Mountain School's Fundraising Auction

When: 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12

Where: Rex's American Bar & Grill, 3190 S. Lincoln Ave.

Emerald Mountain School will host its 24th annual Scholarship Auction at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12 at Rex’s American Bar & Grill. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the event will benefit the school’s scholarship program.

This year’s auction celebrates the school’s 24th year, and the event is open to all community members. Tickets are $50 per person and include beer, wine and appetizers served by eighth grade ambassadors from the school.

Among its featured items, the silent auction will offer a two-night stay at the Lodge at Three Forks Ranch, a Thanksgiving dinner for four from Drunken Onion and an eight-day ski pass to Steamboat Ski Resort.

In addition, students from each class have created original artwork to be auctioned off at the event. All of the items included in the auction have been donated by the families of students and community supporters of the Emerald Mountain School.

“The school is proud of its strong academic, creative and outdoor programs, but it’s the strength of the Emerald community that makes the most profound difference in a student’s life,” said Head of School Sharon Mensing.

Emerald Mountain School provides a unique educational opportunity for kindergarten through eighth grade students in Steamboat Springs, and school leaders use the scholarship program to make it possible for more students to have the opportunity to attend the school.

The school’s mission is to “provide a creative environment that includes multi-age and socio-economically diverse classrooms, low student-teacher ratios, and active parent participation.”

Contact Debbie Gooding at the Emerald Mountain School at 970-879-8081 to purchase tickets or for more information about the event.
