Where does the money raised go?

All of the money raised will go directly to High Tech High Chula Vista. In the past Faces of the Future funds have paid for supplies and projects for art, drama, technology, Robotic Team, Green House, and advisories. Funds have purchased additional computers, printers, digital cameras and digital storage devices that your child uses daily and have provided additional funding for science labs, graphic arts labs, sports, and music. All Faces of the Future supporters can be confident that every dollar will be well spent and used wisely.

What happens at the live auction?

It’s one of the most exciting parts of our event! The item up for auction is described by the Auctioneer and a starting bid is given. Then the fun begins. As the Auctioneer raises the bids higher and higher, guests indicate their acceptance of each offered bid amount by holding up their paddle (their auction booklet which has their bid number printed very large on the back). The bidder placing the highest accepted bid is the winner of that item.
