Parents, don’t you deserve a night out? Come and enjoy some fun with your grown up Jerabek friends while supporting our school. You do not want to miss THE event of the year- be sure to mark your calendars!

Each year the Jerabek Family Faculty Organization (FFO), a 501 c(3) non-profit organization hosts a Gala and auction to raise funds to support our academic programs and the 650+ children attending our school.  The money raised from our auction is used to support Art, Music, Technology, Science, Reading and Library instruction as well as other various academic enhancements. Without your support these services will not be provided to the Jerabek students as they are no longer directly funded by the school district. Thanks to valuable community support.

Kari Fields and Rebecca Podmenik, Co Chairs

FAQ About Spring Fling Gala


Evening cocktail attire (When in doubt, you can never be TOO dressed up!)


No paper tickets. Please just check in at Registration.

May I invite guests?

Yes, the more, the merrier. Anyone who wants to support the school is welcome… think parents of alumni ? They just need to buy a ticket online.

Do I need to have hundreds of dollars to enjoy myself?

No! There is always great food, entertainment, and dancing. It is a place to see old friends and meet new ones. Your child’s teachers or principal may be there too. Often, you will find items you may buy anyway: restaurant gift certificates, haircuts or sports camps for the kids.

Can a group of friends bid on one item together?

Yes! Forming a group is a great way to afford some parties, vacations, wine and other expensive items. However, we can only charge one bidder’s account, so designate one specific bidder and have other group members pay that bidder.

For the auction, can I pay with my credit card?

Yes, we will accept visa and master card.

I can’t go to the event but I want to give to the FFO ?

Please consider making a one time donation on our mobile bidding site. No donation is too small!
