Act Now to WIN Elton John Tickets and Support the FTEF

What do Old Pogue Bourbon, a private Cessna Plane flying lessons, and exclusive tickets to the sold-out final Elton John World Tour have in common?  All are items that can be won ONLY at the Fort Thomas Education Foundation’s (FTEF) annual silent auction, which is held in conjunction with the FTEF annual dance.

Need a website? Use the local guys! 

This Saturday, March 3, from 8-midnight, the FTEF will be holding its fifteenth annual dance at the Community Center (Mess Hall) in Tower Park.  Tickets are still available for this great event and can be purchased at (for more information, see the FTM story here).

However, those readers who may not want to attend the dance but still want to get in on the action can do so NOW and through 11 pm on Saturday March 3 by bidding on the silent auction items online.  To do so, simply visit the FTEF Silent Auction Online homepage at the link and register as a user.  From there, you will have access to bid on more than 275 different items.  Bidders can set a single bid or a recurring bid up to a maximum price.

Some of the big ticket items include Elton John Farewell Yellow Brick Road concert tickets, two Bengals tickets at the 50-yard line, a framed Beverly Erschell Original Water Color painting, 4 passes to Walt Disney, and 2 round-trip tickets on Ultimate Air.  Additionally, there are numerous gift certificates, experiences, and priceless items such as reserved seating for the 2018 HHS graduation ceremonies, a ride to school in a police car or fire truck, and numerous birthday party options.  One of the neater items is a chess set that was printed by students at Highlands High School on the 3D printers that the Fort Thomas Education Foundation had purchased for the schools.

Every dollar raised through the online silent auction goes toward the Fort Thomas Education Foundation which uses those dollars to reward grants for various items for the Fort Thomas schools.  Past grants have included 3D printers and many other STEM items, musical instruments, and numerous other requests from the teachers at any of the five schools.

Be sure to check out the online auction, bid early, bid often, and bid high, knowing that your dollars go to support a great cause.  As a reminder, the auction closes Saturday March 3 at 11 pm.
