WHAT IS HOPE AUCTION?
HOPE Auction is a two day fundraiser event that occurs around Valentine's Day each year! One night is reserved for a dinner and dance, where everyone gets delicious food and a fun dance for the benefit of a charity! The other night, arguably the most memorable at TAMS, is dedicated to the main event, the Auction! Starting in the evening, performances by the TAMS student body go on until late in the night. The attendees bid on their favorite acts to not only show support to their friends and amazing performances but to also donate to the chosen organization of the year! This past year, HOPE Auction 2020 raised money for the Rainforest Trust, an amazing organization dedicated to preserving and saving the Amazon rainforest. Check out their website here!
