Athletic Events

A BCS Auction Is…

A fundraising activity to benefit the Annual Fund of Berks Christian School. An opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind items. A fun time for you and your whole family.

Quarter Auction

So, how does a Quarter Auction work?

1. Each player purchases a numbered paddle with which to bid on items during the auction.

2. Players also need quarters. (Cash can be exchanged for quarters at the event.)

3. When the event begins, all players are seated at tables, each of which has a basket in the middle of the table.

4. As each item is introduced by the auctioneer, the “price” (1-6 quarters) will also be announced.

5. If the item is something you’d like, toss the appropriate amount of quarters into the basket on your table, and hold your paddle up to indicate your bid.

6. A number will be drawn, and the person holding the corresponding paddle will win the item (assuming they have bid on the item).

7. More than one paddle can be purchased. If you’d like to use two paddles to bid on one item, you need to “pay” for the item twice.

Traditional Auction

How does the Traditional Auction work?

1. A new paddle can be purchased or you can use the same paddle as the quarter auction.

2. There will be larger items available at this part of the auction including but not limited to;

  • Unique "Teacher Experiences"

  • Class baskets

3. Each item will have a set starting bid, which is listed in your packet. As the auctioneer starts the bids, raise your paddle if you want to bid on the item.


Activities for Kids

Win a fish, vote for a teacher to get a pie in the face, paint a pumpkin, or get your own face painted. There's fun for everyone in the kids' activities starting at the conclusion of the auction.


Athletic Events

  • Our Lady Lions take on Salem Christian in volleyball at 3:15 (varsity girls). Following their game, the Alumni and Staff face off against each other at the 4:30 pm. Enjoy food at our concessions while you enjoy the games!
