THANK YOU to all who participated in the Auction!
We are so grateful for your attendance, volunteering, giving, support, and prayer! This year’s auction was a huge success; we raised over $213,000!
Greetings Grace Family!
I want to shout out a huge thank you for the Auctionopoly! It was a wonderful time with such a sweet spirit all throughout the night! I am truly amazed by our Auction team of volunteers that works so diligently with a servant’s heart to make this event not just a success, but a highlight of the year! Thank you all for your generosity to help Grace Christian School continue to work with so many students and families in the Anchorage Bowl. I want to give a huge thank you to Kayla Sherwood for her leadership as our Auction Chair. From decorations to clean up crew, your selfless work is such a wonderful blessing. And Thank you Lord for the funds that you brought in from this amazing night!
You can still help build up our lunch program!
