Annual Auction

Join us for Sewickley Academy's 33rd Annual Auction, “World of Pure Imagination” on Saturday, February 8, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. at Kimpton Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh. 

The Auction not only serves as one of the primary fundraising initiatives for our school but is also a wonderful tradition and community event.

Last year, the Auction raised over $252,000 to support excellence in education at Sewickley Academy. Your gift to the Auction helps to bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the actual cost of immediate needs and essential programs while supporting the overall operating budget.

We are working hard to make this year’s Auction the best one yet. Check back often for updated information!
