is our adults-only, annual spring fundraiser, which provides an opportunity for parents, teachers, and community members to come together in a relaxed and fun environment, right here on the TWS campus, all while raising money to benefit Tucson Waldorf School! You don’t want to miss it!  Every year it’s a night of joyful celebration, connection, and laughter under the stars that you’ll remember for years to come.


Auction Benefit

The success of the fresh! event is due in large part to the auction which brings in $10,000 $20,000 every year! Winners enjoy items as a destination trips, spa days, jewelry, handmade dolls, one-of-a-kind artwork, and specialty themed baskets brimming with one-of-a-kind experiences and unique treasures from our community. This is a great time to enjoy the company and bid on items.

Donations

To make this another successful event, WE NEED YOU!  The auction committee solicits unique items from the community and creates baskets to be auctioned at the event. If you are interested in donating or feel you have a connection for securing a unique item, Tucson Waldorf School is more than happy to discuss this with you or brainstorm ideas.

This a great way to demonstrate your generosity and promote your business! We warmly welcome the unique opportunities you can offer. Such donations could include a stay in your vacation home, a chocolate and wine tasting, sporting/concert tickets, private music or dance lessons, or special outings to places you love.

Donations should be received no later than early April to be included in the auction. The specific deadline is determined by the auction committee each year. Tucson Waldorf School is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization and your donation is fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We also ask merchants in the Tucson community to make donations. If you have a relationship with a shop, restaurant, or service provider, we will be happy to provide you with donation forms and help in any way.

All auction items require the proper Auction Donation Form and Donation Receipt (provided to the donor).
