Annual Auction

As with any independent school, tuition only covers a portion of the operating expenses needed to run the school. The remainder is made through fundraising and donation efforts, and our Annual Auction has been a key part of that effort.

The Banner School held its first Auction in 1989, and every year since has seen a variety themes from “Great Escapes” to “Beauty and the Beast;” The Great Gatsby” and more.

This year, we are excited to be celebrating our 34th Annual Auction, “An Evening with the Stars”.


Our silent auction will be filled with donations from not only Banner families, but from from our Frederick community. If you are interested in donating, please contact Michelle Iser, BSPO President. Your donation is tax-deductible as Banner is considered a designated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
