2021 Virtual Auction and Trivia Battle

The Auction for Advancement is coming! Here is everything you need to know:
What is The Auction for Advancement?
The Auction for Advancement is Sycamore School’s largest fundraiser of the year. The money raised at the auction funds financial aid, professional development, extra-curricular activities, and additional expenses during the current year. While the intent of the auction is to raise money, it is also a lot of fun for all attendees! Traditionally, we would have an in-person event and you would be able to mingle in an adults-only setting, but this year we have taken our event virtual for the first time. The health and safety of our Sycamore community continues to be our highest priority. We hope you’ll join us virtually and support the Sycamore School we all know and love.
Sign up for this FREE event here.

Trivia Instructions:
Join us for a virtual trivia event featuring Hambone's Trivia. You haven't played trivia until you've played Hambone's! Hambone’s creates entertaining, immersive, experiential games that require reason, not just recall so everyone can play, no matter your level of trivia knowledge. Hambone's Trivia tests your knowledge in entertainment, music, sports, geography, science, and history. Their signature game includes fan favorites like the picture round and 'wagering with confidence' round.  

If you would like to create a trivia team with your friends you may do so. Teams should be no larger than 8 people total. You should come up with a team name, designate a team captain, and sign in with that name as your Zoom display name underscore your own name. i.e., "TeamWinners_Holly."

If you want to meet and play with new friends, you will receive a random assignment on a virtual team once you enter the Zoom. Not having a team name on your Zoom display name will be our visual indicator that you would like to be randomly assigned to a team. Diane Borgmann and other fun people will be in this group!
