Let’s come together

to support our local school auction and the Blackhawk community!

We are excited to announce that planning is underway for the 2021 Tassajara Hills Elementary Foundation Auction, which will take place Saturday, October 16, 2021 at the Blackhawk Country Club.

After an unconventional 2020-21 school year where we weren’t able to host our annual Auction due to the pandemic, we are looking forward to gathering together, reconnecting over fun, food, and drinks, and raising important funds to support our school. Our auction is open to the entire Blackhawk community and beyond. We will be following CDC, County, and State Covid guidelines to keep this a safe event, and we plan to offer an indoor/outdoor option and other ways to address varying levels of comfort.

What will the Auction’s fundraised dollars go towards? 

100% of the dollars raised at our Auction will go directly to our Foundation (school education fund). Our Foundation funds positions that the State of California does not fund. Through the generous donations of our school community, next year we will be able to continue to offer our award-winning reading intervention program with three reading instructional assistants, six paraeducators to give extra support in every class and reduce teacher/student ratios, additional librarian hours to give more access to students, and we are working towards bringing an art instructor to our school. 

Every dollar stays at our school and goes directly towards enhancing the Tassajara Hills education, allowing us to continue keeping Blackhawk the esteemed community that makes us all proud residents.
