The Annual Silent Auction for Kilgour SchoolThe Kilgour PTA will host our 8th Annual Silent Auction event “Change the World… Make a Difference” – a major fundraiser for Kilgour School on Friday, November 14th starting at 7:00 PM at the Redmoor in Mount Lookout Square.  The adult only event includes a schedule of exciting and fun activities including a silent auction, live auction, games, raffles, and party sign-ups (known as our Great Gatherings) in which all proceeds go to the Kilgour PTA to help provide important tools and programs for our students and faculty. Previous auction proceeds have helped contribute iPads for every classroom, the Mustang Monday Enrichment Program, field trip transportation, Center for Science & Industry (COSI) Fair, teacher classroom materials, the Holiday Giving Tree, and many other wonderful programs and experiences.  Complimentary hors d’oeuvres, valet parking, soft drinks/coffee, and cash bar cocktails round out the festivities. Formal invitations will be sent home with students in mid-October and event and raffle tickets can be purchased on-line or at the door.  Please read the following for more details:
