We’ve got to tell everyone we know – we raised nearly $13,000 in support of Open Fields!

On May 8, 2010, we auctioned off 111 eggs, donated by artists, authors, illustrators, and others.

We raised nearly $13,000 for the support of Open Fields School. $10,155 came from bidders at the auction; $1,720 from bidders on the phone, and $910 from absentee bids left at the auction or submitted via our website.

A price list is available, if you’re interested in seeing what your favorite egg brought at auction.

Thanks to all our wonderful artists, enthusiastic bidders, generous sponsors, and to our inimitable auctioneer, Dean Whitlock.

We’ll be doing this all again in 2012! If you’d like to be added to the Open Fields mailing list, and receive notices of this event, our biennial Medieval Faire, and other goings-on at the school, email info@openfields.org or fill out our request for information form.
