Benefit FAQs

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are tickets sold at the door?

Tickets will not be available at the door. Go to sauganash.gesture.com by June 1 to purchase your tickets.

Is the event only for parents and staff?

Absolutely not! Please invite your friends, family, and fellow community members looking for a fun night out in support of a great cause. (Please note, the evening is for adults only.)

What does my ticket price cover?

Tickets include appetizers, dinner, two hours open bar, and dancing.

What should I wear?

Cocktail attire is suggested.

Can I honor my child’s teacher by paying for his/her ticket?

Absolutely. When you register online, you will be given the option to pay for all or a portion of a teacher or staff member’s ticket. It’s a great way to honor someone who has made a difference in your child’s life.

What will be auctioned off at the event?

The benefit is your chance to bid on priceless art projects created by each class, enter for chances to win high value raffle baskets assembled by each grade level (you should see the sporting goods basket! It is gigantic!), and to bid on sports tickets, theater tickets, out on the town experiences, and much much more. Learn more about our silent and live auctions. You won’t want to miss out.

Can I receive a tax deduction for the auction items I win?

You are eligible to receive a deduction in the amount that exceeds the fair market value of the auction(s) you win. Please check the IRS’s website for additional details. Tax deduction info will be available on your Gesture receipt after the Benefit.

Don’t miss this chance to celebrate a successful year, and to help make next year even better. Enjoy a night on the town with some good friends and make new ones too.
