Our Annual Dream Builders Auction

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County's Dream Builders Auction is our signature fundraising event of the year.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we not only moved our 2020 auction from May to September, we have also moved it to a virtual event in order to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Join us for 5 Days of Fun from the comfort of your home and help us reach our goal of raising over $80,000 - during our 33rd Annual VIRTUAL Dream Builders Auction where together, we can unmask the possibilities for youth in Snohomish County by supporting their potential to be great, by providing them with a mentor.

Being a mentor brings many challenges and rewards, yet with consistency and kindness the best mentors can help their mentees reach their full potential. The long-term impact of mentoring can offer life- and career-changing benefits to both parties.

Let's see what amazing power is really behind the faces of our youth!

Silent Auction opens on Wednesday, September 9 at 12:00pm and closes on Sunday, September 13 at 4:00pm

Live Auction and Fund-a-Match, hosted by Gabriel Butu will stream Live on Saturday, September 12 at 8:00pm.

We have a fun and exciting opportunity for you to support our cause and party like you did at our traditional in-person auctions: host an Auction WATCH PARTY at your house!

What is an Auction Watch Party?  Instead of inviting friends to join you at your table at the Lynnwood Convention Center, invite them to your house on Saturday evening, September 12th.  Ask each guest to bring their phones for bidding, and a bottle of their favorite wine which will be added to Big Brothers Big Sisters' one-of-a-kind wine collection which will be used to raise lots of money during the night's event.  Make sure you have a large monitor or TV that you and your guests can watch the Live event on.

Host a group of 8 or more, for $60 per person or $120 per couple, and we will help you throw an awesome party! We will provide you with food, wine & champagne, a dessert, and party favors.  You and your guests will be included in an assortment of pre-event activities and event drawings as well as have the opportunity to share your group’s photos during the Live Auction event.

Invite guests to purchase their admission when they register on August 5th and send your guest list to Pam Shields at [email protected].  We will coordinate the rest with you.  Of course, this is based on Snohomish County being able to move into Phase 3 of re-opening by September 12th.

For more information, contact Sanda Anderson at [email protected] or 425.252.1196.  

Online Registration opens August 5, 2020.
