Wellesley High School’s Class of 2017 is inviting the public to its Monopoly-themed auction at the school on April 9 at 7pm.
This year’s event will have both silent and live auctions featuring items donated by families, local merchants, and students. Big ticket items up for grabs include the Graduation VIP package (6 front row seats and 2 parking spaces), summer vacation for 6 in Steamboat, Colo., tickets to the Zac Brown concert at Fenway Park, and a stay at El Silencio in Costa Rica. Student-donated prizes include a pick-up basketball game with varsity players, sax and viola lessons, field hockey and soccer clinics run by the captains, babysitting services, special occasion dress shopping, cookie making, and dump runs, just to name a few.
The Junior Class Auction is an annual event for the upcoming senior class to raise money to help fund cornerstone class events such as the Junior Boat Cruise, the Senior Banquet, and the Senior Prom.
