Yeshivat Rambam Auction

In one of our favorite cities of Baltimore, MD, there is a wonderful Jewish day school called Yeshivat Rambam (with kids from Early Childhood through 12th grade). My sister has worked there for 6 years, has 2 kids enrolled, another starting next year, and really loves it - both for herself, but more importantly, her kids.

This year, on June 15th, from 6:00-9:00pm, they are holding their first auction in an effort to raise funds for the school, in addition to a very nice blood drive earlier in the day. They'll be having an auction for adults in the evening and a kids' centered auction (for little kids and teens) in the afternoon, which will also feature a magic show for the kids. This is the first time in Baltimore that they had an auction geared just for kids with prizes that they are interested in winning and are very low cost tickets ($2, $4, $6, $8, $10). The larger, regular auction also has low price tickets with the tickets ranging from $5 - $30 a ticket. It will be at the Park Heights JCC with great food in the evening: Sushi bar, potato bar and smoothies to name just a few.

If you're not in Baltimore, you can go online and order easily at The prizes are really impressive, with a lot of support from the Baltimore community in making this auction possible and open to people from everywhere to take part in and help support the school. One great supporter even started a Facebook page about it. The support and appreciation people have for the school is wonderful, and they now need more support to continue to grow and bring the school to an even higher level.

Here's more information about Yeshivat Rambam; and here is all the ordering info for tickets, including the discounts available the earlier you buy tickets online. And of course, here is a list of the frequently asked questions. If you're still looking for more information, you can contact Rambam directly:
