The evening will begin with socializing, purchasing raffle tickets and premium wine. A sit-down dinner and live auction will follow. Music and dancing will round out the night!

When can I buy tickets?


January 18th–February 28th

How do I purchase tickets?


On the morning of January 18th, you will receive an invitation to the auction via email with instructions on how to purchase your ticket. Please note that all ticket sales are final. 

Can I purchase tickets for other people?


All attendees must purchase their own tickets for bidder number accounting purposes. Please only purchase tickets for yourself and your date, if you are bringing one.

Can I purchase tickets at the door?


All tickets must be purchased online, in advance of the event. In the past, tickets have sold out, so we advise that you do not wait until the last minute to purchase your tickets.

What is the live auction?


The live auction is very exciting! Our donations team has been diligently pulling together a variety of amazing trips and experiences that you won't want to miss! A brochure will be sent home approximately two weeks before the event in early March and will detail all live auction items. Please note that all bids are final. 

What is the dress code?
 


The dress code is “Derby Cocktail.” Derby hats are encouraged, but not required.

Ladies: this means an elegant look with cocktail attire. Semi-formal jumpsuits can also be worn! Bright pastels, tropical colors, bold stripes, busy plaid, and floral are perfect for this event!

Gents: this means a suit with a shirt and dress shoes. For a more casual look, a blazer or sports jacket and fitted trousers such as dress slacks, khakis, corduroys, or dark wash jeans without holes are acceptable. Ties and bow ties are optional.

How will seating arrangements be handled?


All seating is prearranged.

  • When you purchase your tickets online, please indicate the names of your tablemates in the textbox provided.
     
  • Once your tickets have been purchased, ONE person from each table will be responsible for emailing Veronica Menta @veronicamenta@hotmail.com and in the subject put AUCTION SEATING.

The committee will do its best to accommodate all of the seating requests. You can also buy your tickets first and finalize table mates later.

The seating arrangements will be made in the order that tickets are purchased. To be placed at a specific table, you and your tablemates must have already purchased tickets online and agreed with one another that you will sit together.  

Please note: all tables seat 10 people. If you have more than 10 people in your group, you can request two tables close together. We will email you with a confirmation or will notify you if we cannot grant you your request.

What are the protocols for COVID?


Round Hill currently requests that guests follow these protocols:

  • Do not come onto our property if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have been exposed to COVID-19. 
     
  • Wear your mask indoors.

Contra Costa County has issued Health Orders requiring patrons to show proof they are fully vaccinated or have had a negative COVID-19 test result within the last 3 days to enter indoor areas. Masks are still required indoors for all individuals, vaccinated or not. We will provide the latest COVID regulations closer to the event.

We’re new and don’t know that many people yet. Where should we sit?


No problem! This is a great way to meet fellow Rancho parents. When you buy your tickets just leave the seating textbox blank. We will try to seat you with other parents from your child’s grade.

What is the online auction?


The online auction is separate from the live gala and will take place from Tuesday, March 8 to Thursday, March 17. You will be able to bid on amazing items and purchase spots for our popular kid and adult sign-up parties.

You do not have to be a Rancho family to win! Feel free to invite your friends and family to bid online. When the online auction closes, items will go to the highest bidder. Please note that all bids are final. 

What are sign-up parties, and when are they happening?


Sign-up parties are a favorite Rancho tradition! Be sure to snag a spot in one or more of these parties, which are generously donated and hosted by Rancho staff and families. Choices range from a special afternoon with your child’s teacher to an afternoon or evening of adult fun with other Rancho parents. Be sure to log on to the online auction as soon as it opens so you can make sure to get your spot on these guest lists!
