5.  2021 Auction

Hey everyone, the CCHSBPA auction time is getting closer.   The auction will be held online again this year.  Auction items will include local business gift certificates, memorabilia, and experiences.

Auction is scheduled to start on Friday, September 24, 2021 @ 12 pm MDT

To participate in all the fun, please register as a bidder on the Bidding Owl site (www.biddingowl.com)

You will be able preview auction items starting Wednesday, September 22, 2021 @ 12 pm MDT at https://www.biddingowl.com/2021CCHSBPAAuction

Meantime here are a couple of spotlighted items that will be up for bid:

  • Auction Experience Spotlight:  Hamilton on Broadway in NYC

This Experience Includes:

•             2 rear mezzanine tickets to “Hamilton”

•             3-night stay in a standard guest room at the Hilton, Hyatt, or comparable hotel

•             Round-trip coach class airfare for 2 from within the 48 contiguous U.S. to New York

•             Access to travel booking & concierge service

It’s hard to imagine a more unlikely concept for a Broadway smash: A hip-hop musical that tells the story of America’s founding fathers with a cast almost entirely of people of color. But somehow, it worked. Not since “Phantom of the Opera” has a musical had such an impact on the mainstream culture. Tickets for this groundbreaking Tony Award-winning show have consistently sold out since it opened on Broadway.  It’s one of the hottest tickets in town….and it can be yours!

  • Auction Memorabilia Spotlight:  Star Wars Original Trilogy Framed Photo with Laser Signatures Fisher, Hamill, and Ford

This framed item captures the leading characters from the Star Wars original trilogy: Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), and Harrison Ford (Han Solo).  Check out the item:  https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1336/1401/products/ES101StarWars-Hamill_Fisher_Ford_1200x_97440022-e361-4b9b-9f38-71d07ee725a0.jpg?v=1629844690
