Auction News – Save the Date & Procurement

Are you ready to ROCK?

Save the date! On Friday, April 20, 2018, Cougar Ridge will host “School of Rock,” a school auction like no other at the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington on the waterfront in Renton.

We need your help to make this one of the most successful auctions to date! One of our biggest needs is procurement. This includes small things like restaurant, movie and salon gift certificates to signed sports memorabilia and unique experiences. Please find a procurement form here for when you are out and about and opportunity knocks. All you need to do is ask! We are also looking for corporate sponsors to help fund this event. 

Contact Nina Scoffone or Sam Stevenson if interested, and for more information, please visit our auction website!
