The Hayhurst PTA and Hayhurst PTO are having a joint online auction to raise funds for Hayhurst Elementary School and its community. Here are some ways you can help this fundraiser.
The Virtual Auction – Dec. 3rd-7th
Over 50 donated items were gathered last spring for what would have been our usual in-person auction. A special selection of these items are available for you to bid on from the comfort of your home or even on your phone wherever you are.
Our online auction bidding opened at noon, Thursday December 3rd, 2020 and will remain open until noon on Monday, December 7th, 2020. The online auction is sponsored by NW Public Affairs and Alpenrose Dairy. Support our school community and get some goodies for holiday giving, or just something to look forward to in 2021!
From a Yakima rooftop tent to gift certificates for travel and local treats, we will have something for everyone. A list of the donors to the auction is below.

Fundraising Takeout Dinner On Dec 5th (Last Day to Order: Dec. 3rd)
Support Hayhurst and a Hayhurst local business by getting a take-out family dinner from Grand Cru Catering on Saturday, December 5th, 2020.
Grand Cru Catering is headquartered right here in the neighborhood and is co-owned by a family with two kids that will be at Hayhurst in a couple years.
Just for us, they have created a simple, family-friendly fajita dinner with all the add-ons. Order your family dinner right here. You can add on beverages from juice boxes to winter sangria, dessert, or even delivery. The Family Dinner will be on Saturday, December 5th.
For every dinner sold, Grand Cru will donate $10 to support our fundraiser
Check out their take-out Friday Family Dinners and Taco or Teriyaki Tuesdays on their website (link opens in a new window/tab).
If auctions and special dinners aren’t for you, feel free to contribute directly. Find all the details, here.
Questions? Please email Christy Splitt.
Every dollar raised – auction, dinner, donation – will go toward the work Hayhurst parents and teachers do for our community. This holiday season, that means extra food bags and gift cards for families in need, in addition to the usual grants for teachers, funds for special projects (like maintaining our awesome courtyard), and school supplies for all.
Online Bidding – All the Details…
The auction will be open from Thursday, December 3rd at 12 noon to Monday, December 7th at 12 noon. When the auction closes, the highest bidder will be awarded the item; you will be notified via an email from Greater Giving and some friendly Hayhurst elves will get the package to you shortly.
To participate in the auction, you will need to click “Get Started” on the online bidding page found here. If you have participated in a Greater Giving online auction, you can enter your username and password. Otherwise, you will need to register with some basic contact information and your payment information. Then, you can start to bid! You can also find more details about how the program works by clicking “Learn to Bid” on the upper left corner.
To find out what’s in each package, just click anywhere on the associated white box on the left side of the page. Some have just one item, which we thought would be good for holiday shopping via the auction! Some have several items put together for adventures near or far.
Please note that we have made every effort to ensure that goods and services are still available despite the pandemic, but cannot guarantee that purchases will not be affected by subsequent restrictions or even business closures from this point on. We appreciate your understanding and support for the Hayhurst community during this unprecedented time.

Thank You Volunteers!
Many parents and community members worked together to make this auction happen. Everyone at the Hayhurst PTO/PTA is grateful to the behind the scenes work it takes to pull off a fundraiser – even a virtual one. Every volunteer who put this event on had never done an online auction before, and the theme – A Circus Indeed – was again on the nose. 2020 strikes again!
