Augusta Elementary PTO Announces 10th Annual Dinner Auction November 5


The Augusta Elementary Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is announcing the 10th Annual Dinner Auction on Saturday, November 5, 2022, at the Augusta Harmonie Verein Cultural Arts Center (formerly known as the Augusta American Legion Hall.) Doors open at 5:00 p.m., dinner is served around 7:00 p.m., and the live auction begins at about 8:15 p.m.
This year, the PTO is very excited to feature the returning culinary skills of Chef Patrick Long of Mosaic Café & Catering, Washington, Missouri. The evening’s menu will lend itself to celestial dishes, highlighting the “Outer Space” theme, such as “Light Year” Lemon-Herbed Chicken and “Planetary” Peppercorn Pork Loin, “Galaxy” Garlic Mashed Potatoes, etc. The school will also use this “Outer Space” theme as its Positive Behavior Incentive System (PBIS) throughout the upcoming school year. The Dinner Auction Tickets are $40 each for ages 21+ and includes a full open bar.

The Augusta PTO is extremely appreciative of the area businesses and donors who have continuously supported this endeavor, including Gold Sponsors, The Greater Augusta Chamber of Commerce (GACC) and Hedrick Brothers Roofing – Augusta. The Augusta Elementary PTO is seeking live and silent auction donations and additional gold, silver and bronze-level sponsorships from the local business community.
