We are actively recruiting volunteers for our 8th Annual Auction, scheduled for March 10th, 2018, at the Mount Baker Community Center. It takes a village to host our biggest fundraiser of the school year. There are lots of ways you can help: 

Many hands make light work, folks. Any and all volunteers are welcome. Let us know how and when you can help and we'll find a job that's right for you!

Email Hawthorne parent and Auction Chair Josie Clark at at auction@friendsofhawthorne.org to join our ever-growing cadre of volunteers.


It takes a village ... and and half ... and one heck of an Auction Chair!

Hats off to our tireless, dedicated mover of mountains, Auction Chair Derek Butcher, for the countless emails, phone calls, Is dotted and Ts crossed that made our 2015 Faces of Hawthorne Auction such a fantastic success. Email him your words of thanks and amazement at auction@friendsofhawthorne.org.
