Kilgour + MadTree = Lucky 13 PTA Silent Auction

This year Kilgour PTA’s LUCKY 13th Annual Silent Auction will take place on Friday, November 15 at MadTree Brewery in Oakley. 

WHAT IS IT? Since its inception in 2006, the annual PTA Silent Auction has become Kilgour PTA’s biggest fundraiser and largest social event. Last year, over 350 tickets were sold and $50,000 was raised for the school!

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? Kilgour receives a smaller portion of local, state or federal funding relative to other CPS schools.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Our community and families must pick up the slack. All funds raised by Kilgour PTA go back into school for the benefit of our students & families. The Silent Auction helps PTA fund things like supplemental enrichment programming, a field trip bus & classroom equipment for every teacher, software & technology packages, basic needs like copier maintenance, paper, and ink. And a whole lot more.


BECAUSE IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT FUNDRASING! It’s a highly-anticipated adult-only social event to celebrate with our community, teachers, and families outside of school and to bid on over 450 amazing, unique, must-have auction items.

AND EVERYONE IS WELCOME! We’ve worked hard to make this year’s event more accessible to our entire community by hosting it locally, providing childcare at Kilgour School, offering teacher & volunteer discounts, and reserving select items and Great Gathering tickets for “After Auction” for those who can’t attend the auction.

We look forward to seeing you at MadTree, 

Chandler Dektas, Kilgour PTA President

Ryan Wenstrup-Moore, Kilgour PTA President-elect

Caroline Perez, Silent Auction Chair & Solicitation Lead

Jeff Sucharew, Silent Auction Chair

1. Volunteer. Help us get items from local businesses. Sign up here. Any help, big or small, is appreciated… and no experience is necessary! We STILL need your help! Can you make 10 phone calls? We need you. Have ideas for decorating? Can drive a car and pick up a donation? Like to organize? We need you too! Every volunteer matters and helps the school!

2. Participate in the Street Baskets Battle. Find your neighbors, conspire with them to create the most popular basket at auction. Congrats to Nash & Ellison, our 2018 winners! Who will the 2019 title go to?

3. Seek a Donation. Ask your favorite business if they would consider being a donor to our Silent Auction. You LOVE your school & you LOVE where you shop. Not only will their donation help the school, but it’s also a great way to market their business. Just drop off a form to them. If every family got just one donation we would have 100% of our items needed!!

4. Make a Donation. Our families typically help us with approximately 25% of ALL donations! Email us at, or submit your donation online. EVERY donation counts! We will arrange pick up of your donation, no matter how big or small!

NO donation is too small. We challenge Kilgour families to think about what or how you might donate– it’s only because of you that our PTA is successful!  Be creative: what would you buy? If you like it, so will we!
