Friday, April 29, 2022—6 o’clock

Join us and enjoy the “rustic” ambiance of The Valley at Frutig Farms! Stroll and enjoy a glass of champagne or an old fashioned from the open bar while perusing the silent auction and wine pull. On the lower level, dine with friends in the vintage barn “ballroom”—followed by a spectacular and entertaining Live Auction with proceeds going to support Emerson School!

Teacher Experience Raffle

Give your child the gift of time with their favorite teachers. Each $10 ticket buys a chance at a great teacher-student activity. After purchasing your ticket, place it in the box for the teacher experience in which you are interested. Some teacher experiences have grade restrictions and boxes are marked accordingly.

Winning tickets will be drawn at Emerson School on Monday, May 2, midday. There is no limit to the number of chances you may purchase, and you need not be present to win. Pre-sale tickets may be purchased for $10 each from the Front Desk, main entrance – Middle or Lower School and Development Offices as well as from After Care. Cash, check, or credit cards accepted. Tickets may be purchased at the Auction. Raffle ticket purchases are not tax deductible by law.


What to Wear?

Dressy, casual with a twist! Think Barn Chic: chunky heels, boots and lace for the ladies—jeans and jackets for the gents. As always, dress as you wish!


Join the fun and volunteer for one of the many Auction committees. Volunteers are still needed for a variety of committees. There is a full range of time commitments to suit all schedules. 



The Valley at Frutig Farms is conveniently located at 7650 Scio Church Rd., approximately 5 minutes west of Emerson School.
