Spring Fair, Silent Auction, and Raffle 2023
5/1/2023 9:49 pm
YOU'RE INVITED: Sunday, May 21, 2023. 11 am-3 pm
WHAT IS THE SPRING FAIR?
The Spring Fair is an annual fun community event with carnival-like games, activities, and food held at the Morse School. In past years we have had bouncy castles, a dunk tank, face painting, fairy house building, and more!
There will be NO entry fee required again this year!
The Spring Fair is also a fundraiser for the Friends of the Morse School, our school's volunteer organization of parents and caregivers. We appreciate a $5 donation per person, and strongly encourage participating in the raffle and the silent auction! Check back regularly for a list of prizes that will be available.
All Morse School and Cambridgeport community members are invited to enjoy the Spring Fair. There is no need to participate in the silent auction or raffle in order to attend. We want everyone to come and hang out and have a great time, and hope to raise some money in the process!
We need 20+ volunteers to staff the various activities throughout the event.

All Morse School students should receive one free raffle ticket along with a flyer in their school folder a couple of days before the event. Additional raffle tickets are available for purchase. $2 per ticket, or 3 tickets for $5. Raffle winners will be selected around 2:30 pm. If you will not be in person during the raffle selection, please be sure to put your name and contact information on the back of each raffle ticket.
A silent auction is an event where items for sale are displayed for attendees to browse, place bids on, and purchase. Unlike traditional auctions, there is no auctioneer present. Instead, participants write their bids silently on a bid sheet (a piece of paper). Check back throughout the event to see if you've been outbid, and then raise your bid! We encourage friendly competition to drive up the bids! All proceeds go towards the Friends of the Morse School.
The bid sheet indicates the minimum bid amount and the minimum increase requirement. The minimum increase requirement dictates how many dollars more a bid must be than the last. Once the bidding has ended and the winning bids have been announced, winners can complete their transactions and collect their items.
