Auction 2017

JBBP Online Auction

WHAT:Virtual Fundraising Event
WHERE: Online, from the comfort of home, via your desktop, laptop or mobile device
WHEN: March 4-11, 2018


This annual event is one of JBBP’s largest annual fundraisers. Our JBBP Community raised almost $70,000 through the 2017 Tomodachi Auction — supporting technology on campus, science, social studies and field trips, plus all enrichment programs, including PE, Music, Art, Computer Lab, and Japanese!


Similar to eBay, only just for the JBBP community, the Tomodachi Auction is a virtual event — online and stress-free, from the comfort of your couch. We'll have plenty of intangible items (gift certificates) for your bidding pleasure, and you get to shop from your computer or mobile device

1. Ask for Donations!

Trial-memberships or competitive discounts for after-school classes or summer camps are great too. Event tickets and wine always do very well at the Tomodachi Auction.

2. Create a "Clarendon's Own" Donation

These events are highly sought after, and there are loads of options: offer to host a dinner or cocktail party at your house, throw a kids' sleepover bash, organize a pool party, offer a week in your vacation home, etc. Share a talent, such as rolling sushi, making kimchee, or even hosting a crafting afternoon. You can donate a professional skill or service. You are clever and creative, and we can't wait to see what great ideas you dream up!

JBBP families can also download this year’s Donor Form and Donor Letter or grab one from the bookshelf right outside of the main office. You can also contact Jolene Yee with ideas or questions about donations, too.

3. Spread the word, pitch in and and help us prepare!

This auction takes a village, and the entire community working together will make it, and our school, successful!
